Roasted Chicken Sausage and Butternut Squash + Giveaway

Roasted-Chicken-Sausage-and-Butternut-Squash-Header-2I have a foodie friend. We don’t squeal over new Taylor Swift albums. We squeal over spices and new cookbooks. I can’t wait to share A Well-Seasoned Kitchen with her. It’s a collection of recipes created by a mother-daughter team over a lifetime of family meals and celebrations.Cookbook-OpenYou’ll love reading the stories behind the recipes as much as the recipes themselves. Although I can’t relate to hosting a party on a boat – I can relate to gathering friends around a table of great food. This book will make you want to host everyone on the block including your dentist.

I marked up all the recipes I wanted to try and zeroed in on Roasted Chicken Sausage and Butternut Squash. I had one last garden butternut squash that needed to go into this tasty main dish. Butternut-SquashThis recipe comes together fast. It is even faster if you buy the squash pre-cut in the refrigerated produce section. Raw-Squash-with-Garlic

Roasted Chicken Sausage and Butternut Squash


  • Recipe by Sally Clayton and Lee Clayton Roper
  • 2 pounds peeled, seeded and cubed butternut squash (about 6 cups)
  • 8 cooked chicken sausages, cut into 3/4 inch pieces (I only used 4)
  • 4 teaspoons chopped garlic (I chopped two cloves)
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary (I used dried)
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh sage (I used dried)
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh thyme (I didn't have fresh or dried. No problem. Still tasty.)
  • 3 Tablespoons roasted red pepper olive oil (I used regular EVOO)


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • In a large roasting pan, combine squash, sausage, garlic, and spices. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper and toss to mix. Roast until squash is tender, about 25-30 minutes.

My kids were in heaven. With a salad and crusty bread you’ve got a beautiful meal ready to share with your favorite people, even your dentist.
