September 10, 2018  


2 large carrots – 2 cups

2 red potatoes – 2 cups

1 small-medium zucchini – 2 ⅓ cups

2 red peppers – 2 cups

1 head broccoli – 1 ½ cups

16 ounces smoked Italian turkey or chicken sausage


½ tablespoon EACH: dried basil, dried oregano, dried parsley, garlic powder

½ teaspoon EACH: onion powder, dried thyme

⅛ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

⅓ cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated (optional)

4 ½ tablespoons olive oil

Fresh parsley, salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or foil (easy to clean-up) and set aside.
  2. Prep the veggies. *
  3. Peel and very thinly slice the carrots. Wash and chop the red potatoes. You want the pieces quite small here. (I halve the potatoes and then cut each half into 10-12 pieces.)
  4. Halve the zucchini and then cut “think coins of zucchini. Coarsely chop the broccoli. Remove the stems and seeds from the peppers and chop into medium-sized pieces. Chop the sausage into thick coins.
  5. Pour all the veggies and sausage on the sheet pan.
  6. In a small bowl combine all of the seasonings and salt and pepper if desired (I use about ⅛ teaspoon pepper and ½ teaspoon salt with the olive oil. Stir to combine.
  7. Pour the seasonings and oil mixture on top of the veggies and sausage and thoroughly toss to coat.
  8. Place in the heated oven for 15 minutes. Remove and toss around the veggies and sausage and return to the oven for another 10-20 minutes or until veggies are crisp tender.
  9. Remove and top, if desired, with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.

*It is important to prep the veggies according to directions to ensure they all cook at the same time.
