Fabulous Fall Foods - Recipe 2

This weeks recipe comes from one of the Ravelry groups that I'm in ~ Folklore and Fairtales knitting group. This group is a lot of fun and all kinds of topics have come up in the Autumn knit-a-long thread. One of them is food and Jonna Rose made our mouths water with this recipe. I had to try it and was so not disappointed!

Squash and Sausage Pot Pie

Ingredients: (the ingredients aren't precise, which is just how I like to cook. Go ahead and just dump it in until you feel it's right. It'll be perfect!)
1 med Sugar Pumpkin (our store didn't have any, so I bought a orange globe of a squash that I can't remember the name of. Whatever it was, it was scrumptious!)
1 Shallot
Fresh Sage
Salt and Pepper to taste
Sausage - (I used one package of chicken and apple links and one package of mild Italian)
Olive Oil
Jalapeno Jelly
Pie Crust for a double-crusted pie

Preheat oven to 400. Open pumpkin or other squash, remove seeds and chop pumpkin into cubes. Chop the sage and shallots. Mix together and put into a roasting pan in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes, stir, return to the oven for 10 more minutes.

Meanwhile, cook sausage in a pan on top of stove. When veggie's are roasted, mix the cooked sausage with the vegetables and a few tablespoons of jalapeno jelly.
Use as a filling between the pie crusts.
Bake at 350 until golden brown.

Yummy! I served it with a roasted beet and greens salad with homemade spicy orange vinaigrette salad dressing and french vanilla ice cream topped with homemade blackberry sauce for dessert.

Happy eating!

That looks like a fabulous fall and winter dish if ever I saw one.

Sheesh, Paula! It wasn't enough for you to make me drool as I followed your post and the instructions for this recipe but then, you had to really finish me off by telling what else you served with this! That's taking totally unfair advantage of hungry people, ya know.
Liked the ingredients in this piece and I'm going to have to give some thought to being adventurous and giving it a whirl now too.
