Even though we’ve been home ALL THE TIME, that doesn’t mean that we have all the time in the world to get dinner on the table.  Days are busy and with the sun setting earlier each day, I feel the urge to get home cooked dinners on the table more regularly. That means….all hail the one pot dinners! 

But instead of the pot, I’ve been reaching for my favorite sheet pans because sheet pan dinner recipes are even EASIER than something you cook on the stovetop. And this easy Sheet Pan Sausage and Peppers recipe is my all time favorite.

SHEET PAN SAUSAGE AND PEPPERS

Sausage and peppers, or sausage and veggies….really, is one of my favorite dinners because whether you cook it in a skillet, on the grill or in your trusty Crock Pot, you’re always rewarded with a flavor packed dinner that’s incredibly versatile.

This dinner is really as simple as it sounds….roasted sausage with onions and bell peppers are tossed with garlic, olive oil and Italian seasoning on a sheet pan. I mean, really…you don’t even need to dirty a bowl!

Roasted until charred, blistered and juicy, you can load up your favorite Italian roll or pile it on some cheesy polenta.

VARIATIONS ON SAUSAGE AND VEGGIES

This recipe is so easy to mix things up.  Here are our favorite twists on baked sausage and peppers:

  • Toss the vegetables with basil pesto before roasting for added flavor boost!
  • Swap out the Italian sausages for chicken sausage or turkey sausage to cut back on calories.
  • Add potatoes….thinly sliced potatoes cook up perfectly and potatoes pair perfectly with Italian sausage and peppers!
  • Serve with your favorite sauce for dipping.

I mean, this couldn’t be any simpler and you can turn it into something really spectacular. It’s great for an easy weeknight dinner but also would be fabulous for a simple summer meal with friends.

WHAT TO SERVE IT WITH

Because you bake this sausage, peppers and onions in the oven, that frees up the stovetop for some extra deliciousness! While we love to top a big pile of pasta with this recipe, it’s also fantastic alongside sautéed broccoli rabe for a low carb dinner.

Or go for comfort and make these mashed potatoes, the sauce from the sheet pan drizzled on top is just dreamy. BUT our favorite way is how we serve it with this Slow Cooker Sausage…..you have to see it to believe it and it only takes 5 minutes to make!!!

  1. Can you cut down on the amount of buffalo sauce in the recipe? Will it make it less spicy? My kids wouldn’t eat it the first time because it was too spicy.

  2. Looks amazing, and we will have these Friday for dinner.

  3. Making it tonight I put some broccoli on it to just in case I don’t know why it was there it was fresh and you said this morning on TV that you can put whatever you want on it so it looks good thank you

  4. The best! I make this a few times a month, super easy and delicious! We eat it on crusty Italian bread. Perfect for a weeknight meal or for a crowd. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Since my husband is totally crazy about sausage and peppers (he’s an east coast guy!), I think I’ll be making this one very soon!

  6. Sheet pan dinners are the best!

  7. Do you have to cook the sausage at all before putting in the oven?
