Want to change up your ingredients? Try these ideas:
• Meat: Any type of smoked sausage works in this recipe! We like to use pork or turkey sausage mostly. But, beef or chicken smoked sausage, Italian sausage are also delicious in this dinner. You can also use uncooked, chopped chicken breast, chopped steak or whole shrimp. The cooking time would remain the same.
• Vegetables: Potatoes, bell peppers, yellow onions, olives, mushrooms, butternut squash, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, eggplant, asparagus. All delicious substitutes for the squash, if you choose.
• Seasonings and herbs: Use whatever combination of spices you like! We love Italian seasoning on our sausage-veggie mixture, but Cajun seasoning or Greek seasoning blends work great, too. You can even toss this with a dry barbecue rub.

Once it’s hot and ready, I love to sprinkle on fresh herbs like parsley or basil. Add a dusting of grated Parmesan, if you’d like. Maybe try a bit of creamy goat cheese. We also love drizzling this dish with a mixture of sour cream and Ranch dressing. Or, a splash of tangy hot sauce to zest it up!
Keep It Easy Tip: Chop up your ingredients before work, seal and refrigerate in a container, then toss it all in a pan when you come home. Dinner will be sizzling away, while you wind down and relax. Enjoy it hot, do a little happy dance, and rejoice that there’s only one pan to wash up.
I dare you not to go for a second helping. In this house, we can never resist. It is just so. damn. good.
