  • 16 oz (4) italian sausages
  • 2 cups butternut squash, cubed
  • 1 apple, cubed
  • 8 oz broth
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • fresh sage


  • Heat oil in a skillet. Add sausage crumbled (casing removed) and saute to brown (8-10 minutes). Add onion, garlic, tomato paste and seasoning. Stir well.
  • Next add in the butternut squash and broth. The squash must be somewhat submerged in broth but not necessarily all the way submerged. Cover, turn heat down to medium low and let it simmer for about 12mins or the butternut squash has softened.
  • About 3 minutes before squash is done, add in the diced apple. Cover and let it simmer.
  • When done remove from heat. Garnish with fresh sage and serve.
