Notes

If cooking longer than 45 minutes cover with tinfoil for the first 20 minutes.
For a leaner option substitute turkey sausage for the mild Italian sausage
For a vegetarian option replace chicken stock with vegetable stock, and omit sausage.
You can prepare the squash by slicing it in half and roasting in the oven 
or if you are short on time pierce the squash in several places and microwave it.
