Have you ever had Delicata squash?  It is one of the best-tasting squash I have ever heard.  It is easy to make and enjoy because you can eat this squash with the peel.  You don’t have to peel this lovely squash!  

These usually come out in early fall, and go up until early winter.  Of course, you can still find them during the middle of winter, but the best ones come out in early fall.   


Here is how I cut and slice them.

I then arrange them on a large baking sheet with parchment paper. I drizzle olive oil and I sprinkle salt and freshly grated pepper to taste.

After roasting them for about 30 minutes they come out golden brown and delicious.  I add crumbled feta and chopped parsley for the most amazing Greek-inspired winter squash dish ever!

I have had many Delicata squash dishes, but none comes to mind as delicious as this. Of course, I'm biased towards Greek Feta, so perhaps that is why I love this dish so much. I hope you do too.

  • Baking pan

  • Parchment Paper


  • 1 lb. Delicata squash (about 450 grams

  • ¼ Cup Feta Cheese, crumbled

  • ¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • ¼ Cup fresh parsley, chopped

  • Salt and Pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 425 F degrees.
Wash and prepare your Delicata squash. Cut in half, lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and then slice them into 1/4 inch pieces.
Lay them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Drizzle your olive oil and sprinkle salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
Bake for 30 minutes. Turn them after 15 minutes, so both sides roast evenly.
Remove from the oven and place on a serving dish. Add your crumbled feta, chopped fresh parsley, and more salt and pepper if needed.
Enjoy! Bon Appetit! Kali Orexi!


Serve this with grilled steak or grilled chicken breast or eat it on its own. You can have this right out of the oven, warm, at room temperature, or even cold on top of a green salad.
