sausage and pumpkin traybake

As Autumn draws in, I definitely start moving away from light summery pasta and salads to stodgy comforting soups, pies and stews.
With the abundance of pumpkin in October, I put together this really easy traybake. It takes hardly any time to prepare and is really filling and satisfying without piling on the pounds.
I used white onion in my recipe but I’d definitely say opt for a red onion, they’re sweet and delicious especially with the vinegar. If you don’t have any pumpkin then a small squash could be used.
