Yummy! Attractive presentation and flavorful. We were surprised the skin of the squash was soft and edible. Definitely a company dish.

I've never had Delicata squash before and was skeptical about eating the skin, but the dish was wonderfully delicious. My husband gave this dish his highest rating - and he's a guy that doesn't like summer or winter squash. This dish does make a beautiful presentation and would be perfect for a dinner party or holiday gathering.

This is delicious. My husband, who usually doesn't like winter squash, said we should make it again. I'd say that's a thumbs up.

Excellent dish, perfect for company or casual dinner. We served with a turkey breast. This was the first time we ate delicata squash and I will definitey make this again. The roasted onions were delicious on their own as well.

I love delicata squash & this recipe didn't dissapoint. Finished the dish with dried cranberries for a wonderful sweet-savory side dish. Perfect!

This was a very nice change of pace for us. LIke everyone else, I was really surprised that the skin was tender enough to eat, but it was. The only thing I did different was add some dried cranberries in when roasting the squash, which were good but chewy. Should had added those a minute before it was done cooking, I think.
