There is a whole lot to like about this recipe, considering I really like every last item listed in the title, it is healthy and a perfect filling meatless meal option. It isn’t too difficult to make if you purchase both the pre-cubed butternut squash and the shaved Brussels sprouts. I did have to cut the butternut squash pieces in half to make them smaller, but that is nothing compared to dealing with the whole squash! I felt like this needed something sweet to complement the flavors and textures ~ perhaps sweetened dried cranberries or yellow raisins, but other than that, it was quite good!
This made 6 servings, approximately 6 ounces each and I calculated the WW PointsPlus value of each at 7 points.

One last note: For those who didn’t know, like me, pepitas are just pumpkin seeds.
UPDATE: Reheated and added in 1/8 cup reduced sugar Craisins (1 point), 1/4 avocado (2 points) and a little extra salt…DELISH!
