Butternut Squash, Sausage and Apple Skillet

Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 35 mins
Total Time 55 mins


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 celery ribs diced
  • ½ cup diced yellow or white onion
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 3 sweet Italian sausage links decased
  • 3/4 cup roughly chopped pecans
  • 1 large butternut squash peeled, Blade C, noodles trimmed
  • 1 Gala apple Blade C
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan or Gruyere cheese or mild cheddar


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place a large, deep skillet over medium heat and add in the olive oil. Once oil heats, add in the garlic, celery, onion, thyme and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until the vegetables soften and then push to the side of the skillet and add in the sausage, breaking it up with a wooden spoon and cook until it’s no longer pink, about 6-7 more minutes.
  • Add in the butternut squash. Stir to combine and cook for 2 minutes to let the butternut squash start to heat through.
  • Meanwhile, spiralize the apple on Blade C.
  • Fold in the apple noodles and pecans, stir once more and then top with the cheese and bake for 15-20 minutes or until butternut squash is no longer crunchy.
