Butternut Squash, Sausage & Rice in Sage Butter

What a wonderful dish for chill November nights! The sweetness of butternut squash and the saltiness of sausage are a perfect pairing.


  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1 package sweet Italian sausage
  • 2 cups rice
  • fresh sage leaves
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 2 cups water


  • Cut the squash in half (lengthwise) and remove the seeds.
  • Place squash in a crock pot, add 2 cups of water, cover and cook on high for 3 hours.


  • When the squash has 30 minutes left to cook start browning your sausage and cooking your rice (according to the package directions).
  • Scoop out the meat of the squash and place in a bowl.
  • Slice the sausage and add it to the squash along with some rice. Tear some fresh age leaves and put in a (microwave safe) dish with the butter and melt.
  • Drizzle the sage butter over the mixture, sprinkle with cheese if you want and enjoy!
