Meet my new favorite veggie to roast- delicata squash. It’s so delicious and also SO easy (and we know that I’m a fan of easy-to-make veggies and dishes!). I’ve made so many different types of squash but this one was new for me.

I like squash because it’s less starchy than potatoes and also loaded with key nutrients like beta carotene and potassium that are heart healthy and anti-cancer. I also love squash because it’s versatile and can be used in many different ways as part of a recipe.
