I got some delicata squash from my organic food basket. I wanted to serve them stuffed, so I came up with this recipe, adapted from other recipes I have found. Also, you can eat the skin of the delicata squash, so this recipe is ultra simple to make and eat!

Ingredients Nutrition

  5. Serve immediately.

Great dish - loved the toasted pine nuts. Overall, all the favors were great, but I did not think that the bread cubes added anything to the experience. Next time I will use wild rice instead. Extra treat - the skin was delicious and sweet.

I liked the overall taste of this. I did replace the bread cubes with a lesser amount of bread crumbs and the pine nuts with slivered almonds. Unfortunately, my squash was really dry and grainy. I believe it was either over ripe or not fresh (the latter more likely) so I won't review the recipe until I try it again!

These are delicious! Rich, slightly tart and substantial! I shall make these again.
