One of my coworkers introduced me to the Delicata squash. I love it! So, I decided to make a fun little dish with it.
Slicing it into thick rings, I scooped the seeds out. It makes little flower shapes, which are adorable. I put them into the oven to bake for about 20 minutes on a cookie sheet.
Meanwhile, I cooked up some Norwegian meatballs that I had in the freezer for just such an occasion!
I may have burned them juuuust a little. That’s okay, it’s not bad! I added some good marinara to the pan and let them simmer.
When the squash was done and the meatballs thoroughly cooked, I put a meatball in each squash hole, spooned on a little more sauce, and give myself a nice portion of freshly grated parmesan.
Delicious and fun! These things are so pretty! I imagine kids might like these, although I really have no idea. All I know is that I like them. 🙂
