Made this with regular sausage (my market didn't have turkey sausage) and it was delicious! My friends enjoyed it immensely and I will definitely be making it again.

Made this for dinner tonight with a few variations: added an extra sausage, used two cans of beans, deglazed the sausage browning pan with the broth and used extra fresh sage and thyme. This recipe pleasantly surprised husband and I. Seriously...give this a try. The flavor from the beans and the squash/sweet potato blend so well. You will be surprised. Have already forwarded the recipe to several friends...will definately make again and again. Enjoy!

My boyfriend and I made this the other night and it was delicious! Very filling! We used spicy Italian turkey sausage and loved the sweet and spicy mix. I bought pre-cut sweet potatoes and butternut squash and then cubed them a bit smaller. It was finished in exactly 45 mins; probably because the potatoes and squash was cubed so small.

Made this last night with rabbit sausage and it was very tasty. I loved the flavor combos, but my boyfriend thought it was a tad on the sweet side (he calls sweet potatoes evil potatoes :) Will definitely make again and look for ways to highlight the savory flavors.
