Adapted from Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison
2 delicata squash
1 1/2 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
salt and freshly ground pepper
chopped fresh herb of your choice or a healthy dollop of pesto
Peel the squash with a vegetable peeler, slice off the end, and scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon. Cut the squash into rings about 1/3 inch thick. Heat the oil in a wide skillet, add the squash, and fry over medium heat until richly colored on the bottom, about 6 minutes. Turn and cook on the second side until tender. Remove to a serving plate, season with salt and pepper and garnish with fresh herbs or your favorite sauce.
