Sheet Pan Sausage, Squash and Kale
This quick weeknight Sheet Pan Sausage, Squash and Kale recipe from Today’s Parent uses only 6 ingredients for a simple and flavourful balanced meal in one pan.
I love how the kale gets nice and crispy when roasted in the last few minutes of cooking. Basically like having kale chips on your dinner plate – yum!
Sausage is pre-seasoned, which makes it a convenient protein addition for quick weeknight meals. Swap the pork sausage for chicken sausage or a meatless alternative if you prefer – anything with a smokey flavour and some spices will work well here!
To make, you’ll mix the simple sauce together and drizzle over sausage and squash on a baking sheet. While the squash mixture is baking, you’ll massage kale with oil to soften, then add this to the pan in the last 5 minutes of baking. Enjoy!
What you’ll Need:
2 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp grainy mustard
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
450g package mild Italian sausage
1 small acorn squash
5 cups kale
Makes 4 servings
Time: 35 minutes
