This dinner is the perfect no-fuss weeknight meal!


1 lb Italian sausages (about 3 sausages) sliced into 1-inch pieces

2½ cups 1-inch square pieces of butternut squash (or whatever vegetables you have on hand)

2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil or Marinated Red Onion Oil, divided

¾ teaspoon Kosher Salt, divided

3 apples, cut in 1-inch slices

2 cups Kale, ripped into big chunks 

Marinated Red Onions, optional


Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Place the Italian sausage and butternut squash on the paper-lined baking sheet. Evenly pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil (or Marinated Red Onion Oil) over the squash and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt. Toss to coat evenly. Cook in the oven for 15 minutes.


Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the apples and 1 tablespoon olive oil (or Marinated Red Onion Oil) and toss to coat evenly. Set aside.


In a separate bowl, combine the kale, 1 teaspoon of olive oil (or Marinated Red Onion Oil) and ¼ teaspoon salt. Toss to coat evenly. Set aside.


Remove the baking sheet from the oven and add the apple wedges. Return to the oven and continue to cook for 15 minutes.


Remove the sheet pan from the oven once more, add the kale and, if desired, the Marinated Red Onions. Return to the oven and cook for 10 minutes. Total cook time should be about 40 minutes. Remove and serve.
