Roasting intensifies delicata squash’s flavor. Seasoned with rosemary and maple, this recipe’s great with pork or turkey.

Lovely dish that is easy to prepare and very tasty. Make sure you use delicata so that the skins are not tough.


Delicious and easy and not too sweet.

Skin was too tough to eat

I bought Delicata Squash at Albertsons and made this recipe for New Years Day dinner. The squash looked like a small pumpkin and was hard to cut up. Although the squash was tasty the skin was completely inedible, very tough. I would recommend removing the skin in the future.

11/23/12 I made this

I made this yesterday for Thanksgiving dinner - I have made it many times before, but never for company. I doubled the recipe and tripled the sauce recipe. It was perfect, got rave reviews from everyone.

I don't think this was a real

I don't think this was a real delicata because they don't look like pumpkins at all. You might want to try buying one at a different market.

Great tasting squash recipe

This is an easy to make, great tasting recipe. The combination of mustard and maple syrup, in small quantities, makes the flavors subtle. I cook the onion on the stove first and then add to the squash midway in the roasting process so that the onions are truly cooked (I don't like raw onion).
The squash is called delicata because its skin is thin enough not to need peeling - another great advantage this recipe

Cons: None

Delicious and Easy!

This squash recipe was so good! I am not a big fan of red onions, but they nicely caramelized and were sweet. Even my husband who does not typically like squash had seconds. I don't make squash very often simply because it takes so long, but this was easy - just cut it, add oil and seasonings, and let bake while making the rest of dinner. Couldn't be easier! This is a keeper. Oh, and I used butternut squash since my local store didn't have any delicata.
