Making Roasted Italian Sausage and Mini Peppers Sheet Pan Meal:

(This is only a summary of the steps for the recipe; please scroll down for complete printable recipe. Or if you use the JUMP TO RECIPE link at the top of the page, it will take you directly to the complete recipe.)

  1. I used spicy hot Italian sausage; use mild sausage if you prefer. Precook the sausage enough to slice them; I poked with a fork and then microwaved for 3 minutes.
  2. Let sausage cool a bit, then cut each one diagonally into four pieces, and arrange on a sheet pan that you brushed with a little olive oil.
  3. Roast 20 minutes in a preheated 400F/200C oven.
  4. Cut peppers in half lengthwise; then use a sharp spoon to scrape out the seeds and membranes.
  5. Put peppers in a bowl and toss with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
  6. When sausage has roasted 20 minutes, remove the sheet pan and turn sausage over; then arrange the peppers among the sausage pieces.
  7. Put back in the oven and roast about 15 minutes, or slightly longer, depending on how much crunch you like in the peppers.
  8. Season the Roasted Italian Sausage and Mini Peppers Meal to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper and serve hot. That’s all there is to it!

A tip for serving the Roasted Italian Sausage and Mini Peppers:

If you don’t need it to be dairy-free, this sheet pan meal is delicious with a little more oil and balsamic vinegar drizzled over each serving and sprinkled with some grated Parmesan. (The fabulous oil and vinegar dispenser you can barely see in the back was a gift from my friend Mary) .

Total Time 45 minutes

This low-carb Roasted Italian Sausage and Mini Peppers Sheet Pan Meal is an easy and delicious dinner.

Ingredients

  • 19.5 oz uncooked Jenni-O turkey Italian sausage or other uncooked turkey or pork Italian Sausage of your choice
  • 1 lb. sweet mini peppers
  • 1 T olive oil (plus more for brushing sheet pan)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste
  • additional olive oil and balsamic for drizzling over finished dish (optional, but good)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Brush a sheet pan with olive oil.
  2. Use a fork to prick holes in the Italian sausage on all sides; then put sausage into the microwave and cook 3 minutes, or just until they’re firm enough to slice. (You can also cook a few minutes in a pan.)
  3. Let sausage cool enough to handle, then cut each one on the diagonal into four pieces. Put sausage on the sheet pan, put into oven, and roast 20 minutes.
  4. While sausage cooks, cut sweet mini peppers into half lengthwise. Use a sharp spoon to scrape away the seeds and membranes from the insides of each pepper half. (If you want to use onion, peel the red onion, cut off both ends, and cut onion lengthwise into thick slivers.)
  5. Put peppers (and onion if using) into a bowl and toss with 1 T olive oil and 1 1/2 tsp. balsamic vinegar.
  6. After 20 minutes remove sheet pan from the oven and turn over each sausage piece. Arrange the peppers among the sausage pieces.
  7. Put sheet pan back into the oven and roast 15 minutes more (or slightly longer depending on how well done you like the peppers. (If you’re using onions they might take longer to cook than the mini-peppers. I might add them to the sheet pan after the sausage has cooked for 15 minutes.)
  8. Serve hot, drizzled with a little more olive oil and balsamic and sprinkled with Parmesan if desired.
