READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by WiGal

From Family Circle and posting for safekeeping. Tender Delicata squash doesn't need to be peeled. Plus the stripes add a colorful accent. If you wish to reduce the sage go ahead.

I liked the sweetness of this squash; never having it before this was a great way to prepare it. I only had dried sage but it still gave the syrup/sauce a nice flavor. Made for Rookie Review Tag contest win.
