Delicata Squash Warm Pasta Salad

Updated: Nov 12, 2021

Delicata Squash is without a doubt our favorite squash and we usually only see it around autumn time. It's a great squash to use because they are smaller and the skin is thin enough that not only is it edible, but delicious. And BONUS! when you cut it, the slices look like little flowers.

Our favorite way to eat delicata squash is to roast it. The caramelization of the squash is just so tasty and can be great on it's own OR in a pasta salad like we've made below.

what you need

2 delicata squash

1 head of kale (chopped)

goat cheese (or vegan cheese of choice)

1/2 a lemon

avocado oil or grass-fed butter

let's get cooking

preheat oven to 425

cut delicata squash into slices, short ways

add to a greased baking sheet

drizzle avocado oil, pink salt, and black pepper on squash

flip squash and season the other side the same

while the delicata roasts

boil red lentil pasta or pasta of choice per the instructions
