I've been noticing recipes starring Delicata squash infiltrating Pinterest, Foodgawker, and numerous food sites and blogs. Each time I see a photo featuring this trendy ingredient, it's painfully obvious why it's rising in popularity: It's gorgeous! When cut into long segments, the squash looks like delicate orange lace on a dinner plate.

Delicata has softer skin than its rival butternut squash, so it's easy to all your winer salad, side dish, and curry recipes. What are your favorite recipes that use Delicata squash?
