Easy Pea-sy Dinner!


For dinner tonight, I wanted to use up the chicken sausage in the freezer, as well as the peas. I also have a large bag of orzo, so I figured I'd make an orzo pilaf. I've been wanting to make orzo in squash cups because I thought it would look cute, and it did!

Sausage, Orzo Pilaf in Acorn Squash Cups

2 chicken sausage links
1 acorn squash, halved and steamed for 10 minutes
1/2 lb. orzo
1 cup frozen peas
1 garlic clove
1/2 red onion
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. thyme
1 tbsp. butter

Steam squash, brown sausage.
Cook pasta.
Add some EVOO to a skillet, add onion and garlic, saute for 5 minutes. Add peas, heat through, add pasta, butter, salt, pepper and thyme. Toss to combine.
