Ingredients + Instructions

Here’s what you need:

1 12oz package Bilisnki’s Spicy Italian Chicken Sausage Links⁣
1 16oz package frozen cubed butternut squash ⁣
1 package frozen sweet potato gnocchi (we used @cappellos, but can’t avoid hearing about @traderjoes)⁣
1/4c-1/2c of your favorite tomato basil pesto⁣
Italian seasoning, to taste⁣
A drizzle of avocado oil⁣

Here’s what to do:

  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees and prepare a sheet pan with parchment paper ⁣
  • Evenly slice your links in half-inch diagonal discs, and add to your pan. ⁣
  • Open your squash and gnocchi and dump into the pan. ⁣
  • Drizzle your goods in a bit of avocado oil, and mix to coat. Sprinkle Italian seasoning and mix to coat again.⁣
  • Pop in the oven for 13-15 minutes, until the gnocchi is plump and lightly browned and the squash and sausage are warmed and slightly browned also. ⁣
  • Dollop or mix with your pesto. Enjoy!⁣



  • We tossed in some extra frozen colorful sweet potatoes for more veggies. Our butternut squash is not purple.⁣
  • Start with 1/4c of the pesto for the entire pan and add more as desired, working 1-2 tablespoons at a time, careful not to overdo it and wind up eating one giant pan of salt and fat.⁣
