Roasted Delicata Squash

Roasted Delicata Squash is a great side dish for two people. It’s quick to prepare because it’s not necessary to peel the squash. And the peel is edible!

I was inspired by a recipe on Todd and Diane seasoned their squash with a tablespoon of chopped rosemary instead of garlic. I like the idea of using rosemary, but it was dark and raining when I started dinner and I didn’t feel like trekking into the backyard to our rosemary bush. Maybe I’ll try it that way next time.
