Instructions

  1. preheat oven to 425 degrees and line Sheetpan with parchment paper, foil, or silicone baking mat (my personal preference)
  2. Add sausage, onion, bell pepper, broccoli, squash, and garlic to sheetpan.  In a separate bowl, combine olive oil, mustard, paprika, salt and pepper and stir to combine.  Pour over chicken sausage and veggies and toss to evenly coat everything.  I use my hands for this 🙂
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until veggies are tender, tossing halfway, adding pumpkin seeds last 5 minutes of baking.
  4. Top with crumbled feta and serve with buttery orzo (instructions below)

For the buttery orzo:

  1. Add orzo, water, broth, salt, and pepper to a medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until orzo is cooked and liquid has reduced.
  2. Stir in butter and adjust salt and pepper to taste.  Ready to serve!
