This time of year, I can't resist butternut squash, with its bright color and fall flavor. It helps make this casserole a guaranteed hit at potlucks. —Craig Simpson, Savannah, Georgia

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, divided
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium butternut squash (about 4 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 medium acorn squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 cups crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 small sweet red peppers, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, cook the sausage, onions and 1/4 teaspoon pepper flakes over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink and onions are tender, breaking up sausage into crumbles; drain.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oil, rosemary, salt, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and remaining pepper flakes. Add butternut and acorn squash, cheese, red peppers and sausage mixture; toss to coat.
  3. Transfer to an ungreased shallow roasting pan. Cover and bake 35 minutes. Uncover; bake 10-15 minutes longer or until squash is tender.
