Gnocchi with Roasted Delicata Squash

20131020-054733.jpg

Delicata squash may be my favorite of the fall squashes, which is mostly due for the fact that it is easy to cut and peel. This is mostly a hands off recipe, but does take some time since you have to roast the squash.

Ingredients:
1 lb gnocchi
2 – 3 Delicata squash, peeled, seeded and cut into gnocchi size pieces
10 sage leaves, minced
1/4 onion, grated
6 TBSP butter
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Parmesan cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 400. Toss squash with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake in a shallow dish for 40 – 50 minutes, stirring a couple times, until fork tender and a little crispy.

Cook gnocchi according to package.

In a 12 inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat until it starts to brown, about 10 minutes. Add onions, cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add sage, squash and drained gnocchi, cook for 3 minutes to heat through.

Serve with a little Parmesan cheese on top.

Serves 4.

Baked Delicata Squash

I found Delicata squash at the farmers market a couple of weeks ago, and I’m totally addicted. You can eat the skin on this squah, and even my 3 year old has been seen eating a bite or two. It’s super easy to make, and best of all low fat!

Ingredients:
2 Delicata squash, halved and seeds removed
8 cloves of garlic
12 sage leaves
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 400.

Spray a glass baking pan with olive oil spray. Lay squah in the pan, top with garlic, sage, salt & pepper, spray with olive oil. Bake for 40 minutes until the squash is soft.
