One Pan Healthy Sausage and Veggies

So I saw this on Pinterest (shocking).  It looked easy, and it had red peppers (D loves them, I'm kind of green better). But it also had green beans and broccoli so WIN!

Smoked Sausage in the all pork variety comes in 12-16oz portions, so give 3 oz to your 3 dogs.  They will love you.

It was pretty tasty. More so the next day.  And it was really easy to clean up.

Would have again.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Total Time: 40 mins
 Servings: 4 if served with rice/quinoa (or if not)

Original Author: Chelsea 

2 cups (~1 small) red potato
3/4ths pound green beans
1 large head of broccoli (~ 1 and 1/2 cups)
1 and 1/2 cups chopped bell peppers (2 large or 6-7 mini sweet bell peppers)
9 ounces smoked sausage
6 tablespoons olive oil (you only need 3)
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Serve with: fresh parsley, quinoa/rice, lots of 4 TBSP freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Line a large sheet pan with foil or parchment paper.

Prep the veggies: chop the red potatoes (pretty small pieces here so they will be tender in time), trim the green beans and halve, chop the broccoli, chop the peppers into thick squares, and coin the sausage in thick slices.

Place all the veggies and sausage on a sheet pan. Pour the olive oil and all the spices on top. Toss to evenly coat all the veggies and meat.

Bake 15 minutes, remove from the oven and flip/stir all the veggies around. Return to the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are crisp tender and sausage is browned.

If desired, sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese over the veggies and sausage as soon as they come out of the oven.

Enjoy with rice or quinoa and fresh parsley if desired.
