This is a new favorite of mine. I love the combination of flavors and textures. It looks so pretty on the pan when it is done. One of my favorite magazines, Everyday Food, did a 3 part segment on One Pan dinners. They are all super simple and everything gets cooked on the same baking sheet. Super slick. I will be posting all 3 recipes. I have tagged them One Pan Meal so you can search them that way once I get them all posted. You are going to love how easy this is!
Start with an acorn squash. Depending on how much you and your family love squash or if you are the only one going to be eating it. Choose the appropriate size for your crew. Cut it in half. Turn your oven on to 475.
Now grab some fresh sausage. My husband picked this up at an Italian grocery store nearby and it is delicious… You will want about 1 1/2 lbs of sausage. If it is in one piece like this you will want to cut it into more manageable serving sizes.
Roasted Sausage & Acorn Squash
1 acorn squash
1 red onion
1 1/2 lbs fresh sausage (spicy or sweet)
handful dried cranberries
1/2 cup shredded Asiago cheese
1 Tbs chopped fresh sage
Heat oven to 475. Slice squash and cut onion into 1/4 inch wedges. Toss with 2 Tbs olive oil on large baking sheet. Season with salt & pepper. Add sausage. Turn sausage once to season. Roast in oven 15-18 mins until veggies are tender. Remove pan from oven and turn on broiler. Sprinkle Asiago over veggies and sage over everything. Return to oven and broil for about 3 minutes or until cheese gets browned and crispy. Remove from oven and sprinkle cranberries on top. Serve!
