1. Cook orzo according to the packet instructions, then drain and set aside.

2. Set a nonstick skillet on medium high heat. Once hot, spray with oil and add the butternut squash in a SINGLE layer in the skillet (if possible, avoid piling).

4. Add the vegan sausage and chop it up as it cooks in the middle of the skillet. Then toss everything together for 2 – 3 minutes.

5. Reduce the heat to low-medium, then fold in the orzo and the fresh herbs. Season to taste with sea salt & pepper.
