This is another incredibly easy (almost lazy) recipe to make. All you need is one pan, pre-cooked sausage from the supermarket, and whatever vegetables you want to throw in. You can also add cheese too!
Basically, get a pan and line it with foil for easy clean-up. Cut in “coins” of the sausage (we used turkey sausage that’s already pre-cooked), cut in broccoli florets, strips of red and orange peppers, thinly sliced carrots (the thinner the better), diced sweet potatoes, “coins” of zucchini, and scatter them all on the pan. Dust with olive oil and a mixture of salt, pepper, garlic powder to cover well. Pop it in the 400°F oven for ten minutes, flip it partially midway, cook for another ten minutes and voila, an easy dish ready to be plopped on the table that has both protein and lots of vegetables for the meal. You can eat it with rice, pasta, noodles — practically anything.
I got this recipe from Chelsey’s Messy Apron (all credit goes to her). I’m only blogging about this so that I have this recipe saved in my blog archives and to share my experience making this meal. Again, a super easy, fast recipe that has all the vegetables and protein you need. (You can download her ready-to-print/save version here.)
I particularly loved this brand of turkey sausage that I got from FreshCo (darn, I forgot to take a picture of the packaging). The turkey sausage came out so tender, moist, and flavoured. I didn’t have to do any prep work for the meat! I also was surprised with how soft and moist the sweet potatoes came out. The important part is to make sure the sweet potatoes are diced small enough so they cook properly in the oven. I love one-pan recipes. 😀
