Comments about al fresco Spinach & Feta Chicken Sausage with Butternut Squash & Orzo:

Not difficult to make at all. Full of great flavor. The sweetness of the squash, the tang of the cranberries, the nuttiness of the walnuts, and the savory chicken spinach and feta sausage. And the fresh herbs just make everything pop. Yum yum yum yum yum yum yum!

This was delicious! Myself, my neighbor, a friend, and my 9-mo-old little one (with properly chopped pieces and no walnuts) all loved it!
