Italian Sausage and Sweet Mini Peppers Sheet Pan Meal is my Friday Favorites post for this week, and if you know me (or have followed my blog for a while) you know how much I love the flavors in this easy dinner! I’ve featured both Jenni-O Turkey Italian Sausage and Sweet Mini Peppers for Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, and definitely these are two ingredients I’ve used over and over on the blog!

But of course this would also be delicious with pork Italian sausage if you prefer that, and you can definitely make it with cut-up pieces of regular red, yellow, or orange bell peppers if you prefer that. But please, please try this recipe if you like these ingredients! This is about as easy as it gets for a quick low-carb and low-glycemic dinner.

How to Make Italian Sausage and Sweet Mini Peppers Sheet Pan Meal:

(Scroll down for complete printable recipe.)

  1. I used spicy hot Italian turkey sausage; use pork 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 Italian sausage and peppers sheet pan meal to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper and serve hot. That’s all there is to it!

This is delicious with a little more oil and balsamic vinegar drizzled over each serving (the fabulous oil and vinegar dispenser you can barely see in the back was a gift from my friend Mary) and sprinkled with some grated Parmesan.

Italian Sausage and Sweet Mini Peppers Sheet Pan Meal

Yield 5 servings
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

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


  • 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)


  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.

  1. Made this for dinner tonight – it was very good & simple! I was worried my veggies wouldn't be roasted in 25ish minutes but they came out great. I tossed everything together and even threw in a chopped head of brocoli (steamed) that I found in my crisper. Gave it all a light drizzle of balsamic vinegar and we chowed down. This made a ton of food for my hubby & I – yay, leftovers for tomorrow! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Kiran, will definitely share a few photos of the kitchen.

    Thanks Karen, yes it's pretty awful, lol!

    Kendra, you can contact me using the information in "Contact" at the top.

    Thanks Sarah! Very excited about the house.

    Barb, this would be good with Jenni-O or other brands of uncooked turkey Italian Sausage.

  3. Hi Kalyn…..just called my Costo here in Frisco, Tx. and they don't have the sausage. 🙁 but I'm sure I can find something similar. Good luck on your move……I know it's A LOT of work as I moved from San Diego to Texas about 18 months ago. Like you, I had been in my house for a long time, 26 years.

  4. That looks incredible! YUM. I really need to rejoin Costco. Best wishes for a smooth and easy move, and I cannot wait to see what you come up with in your new surroundings.

  5. Hi there,

    I have a quick question about "Kalyn's Kitchen!" Could you email me when you have a chance? Thanks so much 🙂

  6. Good luck with your move! It's seriously the worst isn't it??? Getting rid of stuff, figuring out which stuff to keep, cleaning etc etc!!!

  7. Roasted onions and bell peppers are so comforting. I'm sorry you are going through so much with your arm at the time of move. I have everything goes smoothly and I can't wait to see your new home, if and when you decide to post 🙂


  8. Thanks everyone for the good wishes on the move. I have been labeling my boxes, but love the idea of labeling the rooms too so people know where to put things. Counting down the days now!

  9. Best of luck on your move, Kalyn! Just be sure you write a list of the contents of every single box on the outside. It also helps to put stickies on the walls of each room to tell your movers & helpers exactly where to put things. That way, stuff has a hope of winding up where you want it! (How can you tell we've moved numerous times?)

    The most important thing to know is that it will take a good 3 months to get settled in your new place, so try not to do too much and exhaust yourself!

    Looking forward to some photos of your new kitchen! Judith from Calgary, AB

  10. Oh, Kalyn, this is my kind of recipe and one you excel in creating–thank you!

    Best of luck on everything with the move! I'm glad you're taking this brief leave from blogging to get done what you need to get done. That week will fly by I'm sure. It is amazing how much stuff we accumulate, even when we think we're being really good about decluttering. 😉 Can't wait to hear from you in your new spot!


  11. I love the colors in that dish.
    good for you taking a break while you move – if you don't you will feel even more pressured and guilty.

    we'll still be here when you get back.

  12. Just wanted to say best wishes for a trouble free move and thank you for your wonderful recipes! I started SBD (my way/your way-not by the book) again a few weeks ago. Your recipes have made all the difference in the world in sticking with it this time! I know you will need time off to settle, but just know you will be missed and I so look forward to your return and more delicious dishes! Take care Kalyn!! Your food fan, Taya

  13. Looks delicious. Good luck with the moving. I've been in my house for over 20 years too, but there was a time when I moved three times in one year. I've found color coding the boxes helps.

  14. Moving is never fun, and with a houseful of 25 years of stuff–I salute you for all your efforts. 🙂 This sausage and pepper melange looks great! I make a similar dish on the stovetop, with chicken sausage and whatever vegetable jumps out at me when I open the crisper.

  15. You make me wish I liked bell peppers… sigh… looks delicious!

  16. I love these flavors – so comforting. Good luck with the details and getting orgazined!

  17. Thanks Joanne. Although I would not consider this to be "time off", lol!

    Lydia, I am very excited to cook in the new kitchen after I get settled.

    Thanks Hari!

  18. Lovely pictures !!

  19. I hope the move goes smoothly and that you enjoy some time off to settle in. New kitchens inspire new dishes, so can't wait to see what you cook in the new house. Congrats!

  20. You deserve some time off anyway! Good luck with everything!!!
