The delicata squash, as its name implies, is the tender soul of the winter squash family. This recipe makes a perfect quick snack or a glowing side dish. If you like, you can serve the squash with a little drizzle of Apple Cider Reduction.



Preheat oven to 400° F.

Cut the stem end from the squash and cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds. Cut each half in 1/2-inch thick slices crosswise on a bit of a diagonal. Toss the squash with the oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. Spread out in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Roast for about 20 minutes. The squash should be golden and fork tender.

If making the Apple Cider Reduction, place the apple cider, maple syrup and dried cranberries in a saucepan and boil to reduce to a syrup. It will thicken as it cools. You may strain out the cranberries so you can use a squeeze bottle to apply the reduction or leave them in as garnish.

Drizzle the reduction over the squash and serve.
