Winter Squash Bake with Feta
Sweet Italian poultry sausage
diced (or 1 sweet yellow onion, diced)
broccoli florets and stems
butternut squash (cubed)
(or 2 packages of pre-cut cubes)
red pepper flakes
(omit if you have kids eating this)
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425
Heat your olive oil and brown your sausage. Once browned, remove the sausage.
Add another swirl of olive oil to the pan drippings. Stir in garlic, onion, bell pepper and broccoli. Cook for two minutes.
Stir in the squash and coat with the oil mixture in the pan. Add oregano, thyme, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper to taste.
Stir in the spinach and squeeze some lemon juice on top of it. Stir for just a moment until it wilts.
Combine the vegetables and sausage in a baking dish. Swirl in a little olive oil, a squeeze of lemon juice and some more salt and pepper.
Cover with foil. Bake for 25 minutes or until the squash is fork tender. Once it is, or slightly before, remove foil and add feta cheese.
Bake for another 5 minutes or until the feta is bubbly and delicious. Serve with some crusty bread!
