The refrigerator light goes on...

Delicata squash are fantastically sweet, and this recipe is great for any meal, with sweet and savory flavors coming from the roasted squash, maple syrup, olive oil, and sage.

I like to choose small squash that are about 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Note that you will have to cut about 1 inch off of each end of the squash to expose the rings. I like to roast those seemingly useless bits and use them for tasting during the cooking process.

Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Slice the squash crosswise into 1/2 inch rings.

Scoop the seeds from the center of each of the rings and discard the seeds.

Place the squash rings on the cookie sheet and move them around gently, turning them over once or twice, until they are coated on both cut sides with the oil and herb mixture.
