This one pan skillet dish is perfect for your Thanksgiving gathering or an Autumn meal. Spiralized butternut squash and apple are beautiful in this easy, weeknight dinner or Thanksgiving side dish.
I’m a big fan of the one pan recipes, especially during the holidays, because I hate cleanup. This one pan, easy weeknight dinner is exactly that – it cooks quickly, all in the same pan, and is packed with flavor and nutrients.
You can enjoy this skillet meal as a side dish around the holidays or just as an fall or winter inspired meal for the family. You can use spiralized sweet potatoes instead of spiralized butternut squash, but don’t skip the spiralized apples – they give this dish just the hint of sweetness it needs.
Classic stuffing flavors like thyme, celery, and crunchy pecans give this dish a Thanksgiving vibe, but it’s fit for any day of the year.
You can also use any type of sausage you’d like – turkey sausage, chicken sausage would work really well here, too. I like Italian fennel sausage because it gives the skillet a richer flavor, but if you want something lower in fat, substitute in a different sausage.
And if you’re vegetarian, you can substitute in lentils, quinoa, farro, brown rice, or even tofu.
