    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    Couscous is a great alternative to pasta because it cooks so quickly. This recipe is made with M'hamsa couscous, a hand-rolled sun-dried couscous from Tunisia that has an especially toasty flavor. You could, however, substitute any brand. Delicata squash is wonderful because its skin is edible, but this dish would be just as terrific made with roasted butternut squash. Recipe found at Serves 2 to 3 as a main dish, or 5 to 6 as a side dish.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    2. 2
      With a sharp knife, cut delicata in half lengthwise. (Don't worry about peeling; the skin is edible.), scoop out the seeds, and cut each half into 1/2-inch segments, creating moon-shaped pieces that have slight bumps around the curve.
    3. 3
      Arrange pieces in a single layer in a metal baking pan and coat with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt gently and place in oven; roast 10 minutes. Using a spatula, turn the squash in the pan so that the light sides are now touching the pan and the brown sides are facing up.
    4. 4
      Continue roasting, turning every 7 to 10 minutes until both sides of the squash pieces are golden, (about 25 to 30 minutes).
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, bring water or broth to a boil over high heat, add couscous, stir, cover and return to boil.
    6. 6
      Turn off heat and let the couscous rest for 7 to 10 minutes, then fluff with fork.
    7. 7
      Toss couscous with remaining olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, scallions and parsley and mint.
    8. 8
      Add lemon juice and roasted squash, and toss again.
    9. 9
      Season to taste with salt and pepper, and top with feta.
