Katie’s Healthy Bites: A Fall Sausage Stew

cassoulet
Fall is my favorite food time of the year. I absolutely love the warm, comforting flavors of winter squash and root vegetables. Butternut squash is often on our dinner table because its mild sweetness and creamy texture work well with many dishes.

The squash provides loads of nutrients: beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium and fiber to name a few. Along with the beans, the chicken sausage packs a protein (and flavor) punch without going overboard on fat.

This one’s not for a speedy weeknight meal, but you can get it on the table in an hour or so.
