Looking for a quick and easy meal? Learn how to bake italian sausage for a simple, versatile sheet pan dinner!
Hi guys, I’m Sharon popping over from What The Fork Food Blog. It’s my first time here as a contributor, and it’s nice to meet you! Today I want to show you how to bake Italian sausage and turn it into a sheet pan dinner! Sausage is always a hit in my house. We have it with spaghetti, for breakfast, in grinders, on pizza, in baked pasta, in soup, stuffed into olives, etc. It never goes to waste.
I’ve been intrigued by all these sheet pan dinners I’ve been seeing on Pinterest – where everything is all thrown onto one baking pan and baked all at once for an easy dinner. After recently making a chicken sheet pan dinner, I was hooked. SO EASY! Only one pan to clean! Prep it, pop it in the oven, take it out when it’s done! It seriously made me want to start turning all our meals into sheet pan dinners.
I love this roasted sausage and peppers sheet pan meal for a few reasons. It’s a pretty simple meal in itself – pair it with a salad and dinner is done. But wait! You can easily take this meal up a notch. Toss the roasted sausage and peppers with some olive oil and pasta for a more filling meal, chop up the sausage and peppers and use it as a filling for lasagna, add them to a roll for grinders, or even just prep this whole pan and portion it out for easy (and delicious!) lunches during the week.
The versatility of this easy dish is what makes it sing. It’s one of those base recipes that can do it all and be whatever you want it to be. This amount of sausage in this recipe can also easily be doubled or tripled so you can make a few types of meals out of it. As a busy mom, recipes like that are king in my house. Enjoy!
