Serves 4

Butternut squash or pumpkin 1 small
Red onion 1, peeled and thickly sliced
Granny Smith apples 2, cored, peeled and thickly sliced
Lemon juice 2 tbsp
Maple syrup 2 tbsp
Ground cinnamon 1 tsp
Vegetable oil 2 tbsp
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Thick pork sausages 8
Chopped parsley 2 tbsp

1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Line a medium-sized roasting tin with baking parchment.

2 Cut the squash or pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds. Slice off the skin and then cut into wedges about 2cm (¾in) thick. Arrange evenly in the tin with the onion and apple slices.

3 In a small bowl, mix together the lemon juice, maple syrup, cinnamon and oil, and drizzle over the vegetables, carefully mixing them on the tray to coat them in the mixture. Season well. Arrange the sausages on top and bake with the vegetables for about 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until tender and cooked through.

4 Drain well, sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve with a green salad and some crusty bread.

Cook’s tip 
Maple syrup adds a subtle sweetness, but it is quite expensive. For a more economical version, use 2 tablespoons light brown sugar.
