Fall Butternut Casserole

     Nothing better in a cool fall evening then something warm, filling and comforting, so I decided to throw together a Butternut casserole. This was the first time I served this to the family and I have to say it was a hugh hit. They have requested to have it again already! LOL

Fall Butternut Casserole

1        Lg Butternut squash cut into pieces
1       Small onion (diced)
1       Pkg Smoked Chrdonnay Chicken Sausage (cut into small disks)
2       tbsp Fresh Sage (finely diced)
1/2    C.  Pure Maple Syrup
4       Tbsp Butter
Salt & Pepper

Mix first four ingredients together and put in casserole dish.
Mix maple syrup and melted butter and pour over casserole.
Toss gently and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

It is such a simple dish and the flavors blend togehter so wonderfully, I don't normally use sweets but I made an exception this time and I am really glad I did. I have already made plans for the next time I cook it,  I think next time I am going to use a pork sausage and sprinkle it with bacon. Everything always taste better with bacon on it, Yum Yum!!
