This recipe would also work with Acorn, Sweet Dumpling or Carnival squashes.
2 Delicata cut in half length-wise and de-seeded

Place squash face down on an oiled baking sheet for 30-40 min at 350˚. While baking, prepare filling. Sauté onion or shallots in butter. When translucent, add garlic and sage and stir occasionally until onions are browned. Add spinach and when wilted, remove from heat.
Toast nuts and add to onion mix with rice, goat cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Fill squash halves and return to the oven for 20 min or until the tops start to brown. Serves 4.
