Who else was caught off guard with this weather?! Just as I was starting to think about cardigans and homemade pies and snuggling up at home, out of nowhere came the sun and a lovely late bout of summeryness!
I can’t complain of course…I like the sun to shine as much as the next person….but it did somewhat scupper my meal planning (not to mention my outfit planning). But never fear! Out of hearty wintery ingredients, I bring you a delightfully summery dish!
I have been making this dish for years and it’s always been a summer to autumn favourite because it’s not overly filling or wintery, whilst still being substantial enough for my healthy appetite! As with almost everything I make, it’s dead easy and pretty quick….
You will need (to make enough for two)….
- Two to three large, good quality sausages, cut into large chunks
- A tablespoon of olive oil
- Four cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
- One large red onion, roughly chopped
- Around 250g new potatoes, cut in half and part boiled
- Around 150g butternut squash, cut into 1 inch cubes and part boiled
- A good handful of rosemary, leaves stripped off the stalks
- Salt and pepper
And to make it….
- Heat the oil in a thick bottomed pan
- Add the sausage and lightly brown
- Tip in the onions to soften, then the garlic, allowing them to brown a little too
- Chuck in the rosemary
- Stir in the part cooked potatoes and butternut squash, season with the salt, pepper and Aromat
- Give it a good stir and allow the lot to brown to a lovely golden colour
You don’t need anything with this dish, save from maybe a few shavings of Parmesan if you like (everything works better with cheese).
