I LOVED this recipe. But in the nature of full disclosure, my 8 year old actually gagged and threw it up at the table. So that was awesome.


  • Original Recipe from Cook Eat Paleo
  • I tripled the recipe for our family of 5.
  • I used this sausage and while it was great, I don’t love fennel which is strong in italian sausage. So I’m still on the hunt for the perfect sausage. Do you have a favorite?
  • Make sure you allow enough time to roast the winter squash!!

I would love to know what you think of this if you try it!
