Roasted Half-Moons of Delicata Squash
ROASTED HALF-MOONS OF DELICATA SQUASH
adapted from a variety of sources, as well as my personal feelings about roasting veggies with olive oil and salt
Delicata squash (allow 1/2 to 1 squash per person, depending on size)
coarse sea or kosher salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Halve and seed the squash, and slice the unpeeled halves into 1/2-inch half-moons. Toss them with a tablespoon or two of olive oil and a pinch of coarse salt, then spread the pieces in a single layer on a cookie sheet, and roast for 20-30 minutes, or until nicely browned. Turn pieces once or twice during roasting -- they turn brown where they touch the pan. Serve hot, as a side dish, or as a topping for a green or grain salad.
