How To Make italian sausage and squash

  • 1
    In a skillet, heat olive oil on medium high heat, add sausage links and cook until almost done, turning down heat to prevent getting too brown and stirring occasionally. When done, slice into 1/2-inch slices, remove from pan and cover to keep warm.

    In the same skillet, add butter and garlic (either clove, jarred or powder) and salt and pepper. Cook on medium heat about 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add squash, stirring, and cook 3-4 additional minutes. It will take a little longer if squash is sliced.
