Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.Line a baking sheet with parchment or foil add the sprigs of rosemary.
Slice the delicata squash in half and scrape out the seeds. Slice in to half moons, about ½” thick. Chop the garlic and add it with the squash to the prepared sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil and toss with the rosemary sprigs. Sprinkle with salt and roast in the oven.
