Squash, Paprika, and Chickpea Bake

In an act of complete self interest, I gave my husband several cookbooks that were well reviewed in 2016.  This recipe comes from the magnificent Anna Jones cookbook, A Modern Way to Cook.  it is one of several one pan meals that she describes, and the recipes leave a lot of room for the individual cook to make them their own.  This was absolutely delicious and a little unexpected.

1 chopped winter squash (she says coarsely chopped, but I like it smaller and more uniform than that, to the degree possible).
14 oz. of chickpeas (or 1/2 c. dried that have been rehydreated)
pinch of smoked paprika
3/4 c. chopped roasted red pepper (jarred is fine, like th kind that you can find at Costco)
1/2 cup stock
1 chopped chili pepper

But in a dish that holds it, salt and pepper to taste, and bake for 50 minutes at 425 degrees.  It was delicious for dinner, and I used some of the leftovers cold in a green salad the following day.
