Maple & Sage Roasted Delicata

Maple & Sage Roasted Delicata

It's Day 3 of Thanksgiving Recipe week and today I've got a new, or at least new for me, vegetable for you to try.

Delicata is a type of winter squash and is also known as peanut squash, Bohemian squash or sweet potato squash. I had never seen one before until I visited my local Fairway Market . They have such a wide variety of produce, amongst other things as I recently mentioned before in my Rosemary Roasted Yellow Carrots recipe. I loved the flavor of this squash, especially tossed with the maple syrup and fresh sage. And, besides a little odd look from Gabrielle because she first thought I had roasted peaches (hmmm....now there's an idea!), the family and I loved it. I just wish I had purchased another one it was so good!  I would double the recipe if you are making this for more than two people.
