SAUS-Y

BUTTERNUT SQUASH LASAGNA

Ingredients

Butternut-SAUS® puree

  • 1 small butternut squash (1 small squash yields about 2 cups )

  • 10-12 cloves garlic, peeled and left whole

  • 4 oz ricotta cheese

  • ½ cup SAUS® Do Everything Sauce

Noodles

  • 10 ounces dry lasagna noodles

  • 1 Tbsp salt (for salting pasta water)

  • 1/2 tsp olive oil

Filling**

  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach- arugula mix

  • 1 lb hot* Italian sausage​

  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Directions​

1.  Preheat oven to 425 F (218 C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice your squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds, but leave the skin on. Rub squash flesh with a bit of oil. Place garlic cloves on the prepared baking sheet and top with squash cut side down (the scooped-out squash should cover the garlic so it doesn’t burn). Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the skin is blistered and golden brown and a knife inserted into the squash comes out very easily.

2.  While the squash is cooking, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the lasagna noodles in the salted water according to package instructions or until al dente. Then drain, set aside, and gently toss with a little olive oil to prevent the noodles from sticking together.

3. Remove sausage from casings and cook in a skillet over medium heat, until browned. Break into crumbles and set aside.

4. Once the squash is tender and cool enough to handle, scoop 2 cups roasted squash into a food processor or high-speed blender. Add roasted garlic cloves, ricotta and SAUS and blend until smooth, and scraping down the sides of the blender as needed. It should be thick, creamy, and scoopable. You can add a little milk/oat milk if the puree is too thick.

5.  Reduce oven temperature to 350 F (177 C).

6.  Assemble the lasagna in a 9 x 13 (or similar size) glass or ceramic baking dish. Add 1/2 cup sauce to the bottom of the pan, spread it evenly and add a layer of noodles. Spread 1/3 of the crumpled sausage evenly over the noodle layer, followed by 1/3 of the spinach-arugula mix, a layer of mozzarella and a layer of parmesan cheese. Repeat with two more layers of sauce, noodles, sausage, spinach-arugula and cheese. Then finish with a layer of noodles, the remaining sauce and cheese as the top layer (it should be a thicker layer fully coating the noodles). Don’t worry if the layers are a bit higher than the edge of your dish, as they will flatten out when cooking.

7. Bake lasagna at 350 F (177 C) for 30 minutes or until the top layer is slightly dry and a little darker in color.

8. Carefully remove from the oven and let cool 5-10 minutes before serving. Then top with freshly grated parmesan cheese, slice, serve, and enjoy.​

NOTES

*Mild Italian sausage can be used in place of hot sausage, if you like it a bit less spicy.

**Mushrooms and/or zucchini are great additions to the vegetable layers and/or in place of meat.

SAUS-Y CHICKEN THIGHS WITH

SWEET POTATOES & MUSHROOMS

Ingredients
  • 1 lb. chicken thighs, cut into bite sized chunks 

  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil

  • ½ yellow diced  onion

  • 2 cloves garlic 

  • 2 cups sweet potatoes chopped into 1” cubes

  • ½ cup diced mini bell peppers, or orange/yellow bell pepper

  • 2 cups chicken stock

  • 1 8oz. package cream cheese* 

  • 4 Tbsp SAUS® Do Everything Sauce

  • 2 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms

  • 1 cup fresh arugula 

 
Directions
  1. Add the chicken, garlic, onion, peppers, sweet potatoes and coconut oil to a large sauce pan. Sauté over medium heat for about 3-5 minutes**, or until the chicken is no longer pink and onions are soft and transparent. Remove the mix from the pan and set to the side.

  2. Add the chicken stock to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and add the cream cheese and SAUS®. Mash the cream cheese into the broth until mostly broken down, then whisk until there are no chunks.

  3. Add the chicken and veggie mixture back into the pan, along with the mushrooms and simmer for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Turn off heat and stir in the arugula.

  5. Serve over rice or pasta. Add more SAUS® to taste.

NOTES

*Take the cream cheese out of the refrigerator about ½ hour before cooking to soften. It makes mixing it into the broth easier.

**Try not to over-cook the chicken in the first step. It’s okay if the onions aren’t completely transparent. They will continue to cook when added back to the stock.

SAUS-Y CRISPY

SWEET POTATO GNOCCHI

Ingredients
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes

  • 1/2 cup whole milk ricotta

  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

  • ½ Cup SAUS® Do Everything Sauce

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage leaves

  • 1/2 cup shaved Parmesan

 
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Pierce potatoes with a fork; place potatoes onto prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake until tender, about 1 hour. Let cool completely.

  3. Cut in half; scoop flesh into a medium bowl and mash. Transfer to a large bowl; stir in ricotta, Parmesan, SAUS®, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until a soft dough forms, being careful not to over-knead.

  4. Working on a lightly floured surface, divide dough into 6 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 20-inch long rope, about 1-inch in diameter, sprinkling with additional flour as needed to prevent sticking. Using a sharp knife, cut each rope into 3/4-inch bite-size pieces; transfer to baking sheet.

  5. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; working in 3 batches, cook gnocchi until tender, stirring occasionally, about 4-6 minutes. Drain well and transfer to clean rimmed baking sheet.

  6. Melt butter in the skillet over low heat, 1 tablespoon at a time, until butter starts to foam. Add garlic, sage, and gnocchi and cook until golden brown and crisp, flipping once, about 2-3 minutes per side.  

  7. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve immediately.

SAUS-Y MUSHHROOM PULLED "PORK"

 
Ingredients
  • 4 king oyster mushrooms*

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1/4 -1/2 Cup SAUS® Do Everything Sauce


Directions
 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C).

  2. Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Using two forks, shred the stems and caps roughly into pieces. Set on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. 

  3. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp of the oil, salt and garlic. Toss around to evenly coat the mushrooms, then bake for 20 minutes, or until mushrooms are a bit crispy and brown on the edges.

  4. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp oil in a large sauté pan over medium high. Transfer cooked mushrooms to pan and add SAUS®. Stir and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until mixture is thick and fragrant. 

 

         Serve warm on sandwiches, nachos, salads, tacos…or whenever you eat pulled pork

 

★ You can use regular oyster mushrooms if you can’t find king oysters, though you will need many more (about

       3 heaping cups). Button or champignon mushrooms don’t work well in this recipe
