From EatingWell: November/December 2009, If you haven?t tried delicata squash, it?s worth seeking out. The skin is tender enough to eat when cooked, so there?s no peeling involved. All you have to do is slice it and then cook it. Here we sauté it with olive oil and a little orange juice and zest, then add a sprinkling of pistachio nuts to make it special.
