Of all the squashes in the world, delicata squash has to be my favorite.
It’s slightly sweet, slightly nutty, and the perfect ingredient for a fall dinner.
It’s so great you don’t even have to peel it. I always eat the squash skin and all. If you can find delicata at your grocery store, I highly recommend picking it up.
TradervJoe’s always carries a bunch of fresh delicata this time of year, so the last time I swung by the store I loaded up. I already knew what I was going to do with it, too: roast it on a sheet pan with other veggies and pork.
I picked up a packet of Riega “Maple pork sheet pan dinner” seasoning and went to town on my epic fall dinner. Riega has a bunch of seasoning packets that my husband and I have been using lately—they’re really good. There are directions on the back on how to use them and the flavors run the gamut from Hatch Green Chile to Sesame Ginger. (This is NOT sponsored, I truly just love the seasoning packets!!)
Potatoes, carrots and pork chops rounded out this meal. It ended up being perfect. 10/10, highly recommend.
