We love to try different restaurants around Seattle, but we also really enjoy cooking at home. This delicious dinner is a play off of a Martha Stewart Living recipe we love. Instead of using uncooked Italian sausage, we tried fully cooked Isernio’s sausage – a local company from Kent.

Isernio’s offers three different types of fully cooked sausages: Sweet Italian Chicken with Parmesan, Apple Chicken, and Caprese Chicken with Mozzarella, Basil & Sun Dried Tomato.

For this tasty recipe, we used Isernio’s Sweet Italian Chicken with Parmesan, which is made with fennel, sweet bell peppers, and shreds of Parmesan cheese.

What You Need

1 package Isernio’s Sweet Italian Chicken with Parmesan sausage (four sausages)
1 acorn squash, halved, seeded, and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
1 red onion, cut into 1/4 inch wedges
3 tablespoons olive oil
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage leaves
1/4 cup dried cherries, chopped


Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. Toss squash and onion with olive oil and arrange in a single layer on a ringed baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast the vegetables until they are tender, 15 to 18 minutes.

With 10 minutes remaining on the roast time, add the Isernio’s sausage. Since they are fully cooked, you just need to give them enough time to heat up.

After you’re done roasting the vegetables and sausage, heat the broiler with the rack about 8 inches from the heating element. Sprinkle Asiago cheese and sage over the vegetables and broil until browned and bubbling, two minutes.

Serve with dried cherries sprinkled on top.
