I'm all about squash in the fall! Butterut, PUMPKIN especially! Acorn etc etc... Anyway, I found an awesome recipe for squash and sausage shepherds pie.
2.5 lbs butternut squash (peeled seeded and cut into chunks)
5 tbsp butter
1 tsp sea salt
1 lb maple apple chicken sausage
8 oz sliced mushrooms
3 cloves garlic
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup sliced carrots
1/2 cup chopped cauliflower
Preheat oven to 425f
Cook squash in boiling water until tender.
Drain add butter and mash.
Chop sausages in 1/2 then in quarters. Mix in bowl, minced garlic, carrots, mushrooms, cauliflower and broth. Pour in baking dish and top with squash. Bake for 15-20 mins. Top with green onions if desired. Yummy!! Enjoy!
