Delicata Squash Rings


I LOVE delicata squash. It is everywhere this time of year and there are many delicious ways to enjoy it. It is also called the sweet potato squash, because of its creamy, sweet texture. I like it best totally plain, just sliced into rings and roasted with some salt and pepper. It has edible, thin skin which crisps beautifully in the oven. Just slice, toss with some olive oil and serve. It is a great seasonal side dish and so incredibly simple and quick to whip up.

What a great idea! I always get so tired of mashed squash, and pureed soups. Love this!
