Roasted Delacota Sqush & Arugula Salad

For the squash

2 delicata squash, cut in half, seeds scraped out and discarded, cut into ¼-inch slices

2 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped fine

1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped fine

kosher salt

freshly ground black pepper

Preheat your oven to 425˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss the cut squash with the olive oil, herbs, a generous pinch of salt and a few cracks of freshly ground black pepper. Arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet. Roast for 12-15 minutes, until the squash is tender and lightly golden brown. Remove and allow to cool before building your salad.
