As you place the sausage in the pan break up into chunks.
In a separate bowl add three cups of cubed cornbread that has been toasted and two cups of quinoa. Then add a quarter teaspoon of salt and freshly ground pepper. Add a cup of chopped pecans, 1 cup of dried cherries, a half cup of chopped parsley, 3 quarters of a cup of chicken broth and a quarter cup of dry white wine. Stir then transfer ingredients to a 9x13 inch pan.
Add in sausage mixture from frying pan into the 9x13 pan. Place in oven at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. Once cooked take out and let cool. Enjoy!
