I have made this several times and we love it. It is super easy, very tasty and unlike most of our other recipes. My husband was leary at first, but the spicy sausage and cranberry won him over.

This was great. I had some extra acorn squash left over from my CSA box. My husband hates squash...so he thought, LOL! He loved this. I used spicy sausage.
