This roasted delicata squash recipe is so simple and is an absolutely perfect snack or side dish. If you haven’t tried delicata squash before, this is your chance. This easy-to-make recipe accentuates the natural flavor of the squash for a perfect fall flavor.

Can you substitute a different kind of squash in place of the delicata? I don't know what those are or what they look like.

    Sure, Nancy! We love delicata squash (type into google images to see what it looks like) but you can try it with whatever squash you have!
