There's pretty much nothing I don't love about sheet pan dinners. For me, they're kind of like a modern-day casserole, minus the cream-of-whatever soup and all the headache. And really, who wouldn't love a pan full of fresh veggies and delicious sausage over a casserole anyway? If my family would let me, I'd make meals like this one every single day!
Being a work-at-home mom of two young kids keeps me really busy throughout the day and believe it or not, even this food blogger forgets to make dinner sometimes until about half an hour before we need to sit down to eat. I know, that's just crazy, but I'm convinced it happens to everyone - even food bloggers - which is why easy meals like this one are SO important to pull out of your hat on a night when there's nothing on the dinner menu and you have hungry tummies to feed.
We moved recently, so my life has been a little bit crazy (read: total chaos) and I've been relying on one-pan meals like this one almost every day. In the last year or so I've actually been including several one-pan meals on our meal plan every week and I've started to keep my pantry and freezer stocked with all the ingredients I need to throw a healthy meal like this together in a pinch. The truth is, as much as I adore cooking, sometimes I just don't have time for it at the end of a busy day and take-out or some other unhealthy meal is just not an option I'm happy with.
The other thing about many easy, one-pan meals is, they're usually not that healthy for you and there's not a lot of colour going on (read: not much nutrition!). This Italian Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner incorporates tons of fresh veggies which is an absolute must in my book when it comes to easy meals. And it's so versatile, so feel free to add any other veggies your family loves. Sweet potatoes would taste great here, and even carrots would be delicious. My kids adore bell peppers so I'm always looking for ways to include them in my cooking, and they're definitely a hit in this recipe! I hope your family loves this meal as much as ours does!
Italian Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner (serves 4-6)
8 medium or large Italian sausages
1/2 large red onion, cut into chunks
1 pound mixed baby potatoes, halved
1 red bell pepper, cut into chunks
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into chunks
1 small zucchini, cut into thick slices
3-4 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoons dried oregano
sea salt and pepper to taste
cooking spray of your choice (I like to use my Misto Oil Sprayer (affiliate link) for this job)
fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and spray a large baking sheet with some cooking spray. I like to use one of my favourite kitchen tools, my Misto Oil Sprayer (affiliate link) for this job because it allows you to spray your favourite cooking oils without any harmful propellants that are found in many conventional cooking sprays.
Add the sausages, red onion chunks, baby potatoes, bell pepper chunks, and zucchini slices to the greased baking sheet. Sprinkle the smoked paprika, the oregano and the salt and pepper over everything and toss well.
Arrange the sausages evenly on the baking sheet and nestle them into the vegetables.
Roast everything at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20-25 minutes, or until the sausages are cooked through completely and the baby potatoes are soft. Use a meat thermometer (affiliate link) to ensure the sausages have reached an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Garnish with some fresh cilantro or parsley and serve this meal to your hungry family!
I just love this dish, both because of how easy it is but also because it's just so colourful and flavourful!
