I couldn’t resist this delicata squash when I passed it in the grocery store. I imagined it roasted with thyme then topped with feta, pomegranate seeds, and pepitas. It was a beautiful side dish and it tasted wonderful. We all, kids included, enjoyed this squash and it paired nicely with roasted chicken and autumn salad I served it with.
