This is a simple recipe for roasting delicata if you are unfamiliar with eating this delicious seasonal squash.
I work as a professional chef, went to school after years of learning in the field. I only have one change to make to this recipe. It works well and is how I roast most squash with similar flesh, as some one else said that the olive oil smoked. You can raise the Flashpoint of olive oil ( don't use extra virgin for cooking ) add canola oil to regular olive oil and you can avoid the smoke and still benefit from the flavor of olive oil.

It didn't dawn on me that olive oil wouldn't be the best to use for this until I noticed the smoke in the house...olive oil doesn't have a high enough smoke point to tolerate 400 degrees for 30 minutes. A butter/olive oil blend would work better and add to the flavor too. Also, I should've cooked it longer after flipping the squash because I would've like it a little bit more browned. Other than that-simple and excellent. Delicata has a delicious flavor on its own and a simple recipe like this lets that shine through. - 23 Oct 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Simple, just how I like my vegetables. I used butter like suggested by another reviewer. Baked it upright, didn't need to be flipped. Turned out perfect. - 14 Aug 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
