{What’s Cooking Wednesday} Roasted Delicata Squash

I love love love delicata squash, partially because it does not require a saw to cut through and mainly because it is so delicious.  Truth be told, I am discovering this year that smaller butternuts and acorn squashes,this early in the season, tend to be fairly easy to cut.  But, nothing beats delicata in terms of ease and a sweet vanilla-y flavor.  I love my delicata cut into 1/2 inch rings, seeds removed, brushed with a tiny bit of olive oil and sprinkled with cinnamon and nutmeg and into the oven.  I follow the formula of baking it for 25 minutes in a 400 degree oven, then turning the heat down to 375, turning the squash over, and baking it another 10-15 minutes.
