It’s fall. Thus wherever you are, you are craving pumpkin, baked-goods, soup and anything that comforts the belly.
This is a comfort for the belly kind of dish.
It will only take you about 30 minutes max (whole process!), then a little extra cook time to let it all marinate.
- 1 large jar of spaghetti sauce (organic, no sugar added is best)
- 4tbsp grass fed butter (or more 😉
- 1 sweet potato (Try for organic veggies)
- 1 summer squash
- 1 zucchini
- 2 large carrots
- 1/2 red onion
- 1/2- 1 clove of garlic chopped
- 4 medium sausages (I used chicken your choice) (try for grass fed/ free range)
- Deep skillet with lid
- Mixing utensle
- Knife and cutting board
- Cookie sheet
- Hungry belly
- Preheat oven to 375°
- Chop sweet potato up in 1/2 inch thick slices like a patty and bake while you cut up the veggies and sausage
- Next chop up the onion into chunks and the garlic into smaller chunks (not minced, not whole)
- Sautée with 2tbs butter
- While that’s going, chop carrots width wise into coin like slices (not too thin, width of a small cracker)
- Add those in the skillet, then chop the squashes into the same coin shapes and widths, after cut into 3rds or 4ths. (Your going for different shapes and textures:)
- Add those veggies in the skillet
- Then chop the sausage up into coin slices, twice as thick and the veggie slices
- Add to all the rest of the veggies and then add
- 2tbs butter
- Garlic powder
*Spices to taste*
- Stir and let simmer/ keep on medium-ish. The heat should keep the veggies hot and cooking through the entire process.
- Now remove the sweet potatoes. They should have been cooking on 375° for about 20-30 minutes
- They should not be mushy but softer than when you first put them in.
- Cube the slices you baked and add into the pot with everything else.
- Let cool for about 5 more minutes, then add 1/2 large jar of spaghetti sauce to the pot and stir.
- Simmer for 20 minutes and stir occasionally until everything including the sweet potato is fork poke-able.
- The longer you leave it the better it tastes due to marination. Just don’t turn it back on high after you have cooked all the veggies through, it will cook and marinate on low.
