Roasted butternut squash and kielbasa

A weeknight meal that roasts together in one pan might just be perfection. It's a beautiful day today and I'm making this for dinner. While I can't wait to grill again soon, quick meals like this allow me to enjoy more daylight time before prepping dinner. We love to keep Trader Joe's frozen brown rice on hand. It's clutch in these dinners where I forget I need rice until the final 10 minutes...that is a common mistake around here. I discovered this Dizzy Busy & Hungry recipe via Pinterest.

You will need:
*20 oz butternut squash, peeled and chopped into bite-sized cubes
*1 tablespoon olive oil
*1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
*12oz kielbasa, sliced into rounds
*1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced or diced

1. Preheat the oven to 400.

2. In a large bowl, coat the squash in the olive oil and garlic salt. Place coated squash onto a baking pan in a single layer. (You'll want room to add kielbasa and onion, so you might need two baking pans) Roast the squash for 20 minutes.

3. Stir the squash; add kilebasa and onion to pan. Bake for another 15 minutes. Stir again. Then cook another 5-10 minutes.

5. Serve over rice.
