"The subtle taste of this squash works well with the stronger flavor of the cranberries. And what is really nice....you can eat the skin! From Cooking Light"

Wow I loved this recipe 5stars all the way. I couldn't find any delicata squash so I used butternut squash, it worked well, I just cooked it longer until it was nice and tender. Made as written but used pistachio seeds as I was out of pumpkin seed. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe which has gone into my favorites cookbook for 2017. Kudos to you my dear.
