Sides

Focaccia Stuffing with Italian Sausage from Saranello’s
Saranello’s in Wheeling (601 N. Milwaukee Ave.) features the best of Italy using fresh, flavorful ingredients for pasta, pizza, steak and fish dishes, and more, and they’re here to mix up your stuffing routine with this recipe featuring spicy Italian sausage combined with carrots, celery, onions, and focaccia. Your guests will be clamoring for seconds.

Acorn Squash from Di Pescara
This vegetarian-friendly dish from Di Pescara (2124 Northbrook Court, Northbrook) delivers both in terms of ease and tastiness (two musts on Thanksgiving). Simply cut acorn squash into four pieces, drizzle with melted butter, sprinkle with brown sugar, bake, and garnish with candied pecans. Voila! A tasty side dish in no time. And if you can’t get enough, discover what else this seafood and steak restaurant is serving up at Northbrook Court, including Almond-Crusted Whitefish, Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass, and Pepper Crusted Bone In Ribeye.
