Roast a sheet of delicata squash rings and you'd be right to be satisfied. But we have three ideas for how to turn those rings into something even more special. Whether it's a deliciously textured salad, a loaded-up tray bake or a luxe tart, delicata squash remains the star here — just spun in enough ways to ensure you don't tire of it all season.

If you're new to delicata squash, look out for an oblong squash, pale in colour, with dark green stripes. It's sometimes called 'sweet potato squash'.
