Delicious Italian-seasoned veggies and sausage all made in one pan. A healthy meal prep option!

My toddler goes to preschool two times a week and when he comes home he’s super chatty about what they did that day.

He talks a ton about his friends and one girly friend in particular. He tells me she’s “so much nice” and that he “loves playing trains with her.” She’s added into discussions about our family and yes, my toddler even prays about her sometimes.

A couple of weeks ago I finally got to meet this “famous” friend’s mother. Obviously excited, I walked over to her and said hi! I quickly followed my hi with “My son talks about your daughter ALL the time. He loves her!”

She immediately responded, “Oh!! You must be Lucas’s mom!”

After I told her that, No, I’m Greyson’s mom, I watched the slow nod of an obvious lack of knowledge of a boy named Greyson.

One Pan Healthy Italian Sausage & Veggies! Easy and delicious!

And so, although he didn’t know it, this meal was made specifically for him to combat his first real heart break. ? (Yes, I am 100% kidding here).

All of his favorite veggies and his very favorite meat — sausage. He loves turkey sausage — in fact it’s really the only meat I can get him to eat. And he literally steals the broccoli from my plate he loves it so much.

This dish is so quick and easy to make and the veggie prep is fast! You can easily customize this dish by adding in your favorite veggies. You can also use whatever sausage you like best. We’ve made this with Italian Chicken sausage and love that. If you can’t find an Italian flavored sausage, regular turkey sausage is still amazing with all the seasonings.

My top tip for roasting veggies

Use a LARGE sheet pan: the more space the vegetables have (aka the less crowded they are) the better they roast. When vegetables are overlapping or jammed into a sheet pan, they end up steaming instead of roasting which greatly affects the end taste/texture. I’ve started using this 15×21 inch sheet pan – which is practically the width of my oven. I can’t recommend the large sheet pan enough!

Ingredients

  • 2 large carrots ~2 cups
  • 2 red potatoes ~2 cups
  • 1 small-medium zucchini ~2 and 1/3 cups
  • 2 red peppers ~2 cups
  • 1 head broccoli ~1 and 1/2 cups
  • 16 ounces Smoked Italian Turkey or Chicken Sausage

Seasonings

  • 1/2 tablespoon EACH: dried basil, dried oregano, dried parsley, garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon EACH: onion powder, dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated, optional
  • 4 and 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Optional: fresh parsley, salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or foil (easy clean-up) and set aside.
  • Prep the veggies: *It is important to prep the veggies according to directions to ensure they all cook at the same time*
  • Peel and very thinly slice the carrots.  Wash and (if desired peel, we love the peel on) chop the red potatoes. You want the pieces quite small here. (I halve the potatoes and then cut each half into 10-12 pieces)
  • Halve the zucchini and then cut *thick* 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.
  • Pour all the veggies and sausage on the sheet pan. (I use this 15×21 inch sheet pan)
  • In a small bowl combine all of the seasonings and salt and pepper if desired (I use about 1/8 teaspoon pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt) with the olive oil. Stir to combine.
  • Pour the seasoning & oil mixture on top of the veggies and sausage and thoroughly toss to coat.
  • Place in the heated oven for 15 minutes. Remove and toss around the veggies + sausage and return to the oven for another 10-20 minutes or until veggies are crisp tender.
  • Remove and top, if desired, with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.
  • Serve on top of rice or quinoa if desired. (Also great plain!)

    This is such a simple recipe with lots of good veggies. We’ve made it a few times already and it never disappoints. We make it with Andouille sausage and it’s amazing! Tons of flavor without hours of slaving over the stove. We toss everything in a large Ziploc, shake, and then bake 🙂

    1. So happy you’ve enjoyed this dish Sarah!! Thank you so much for the comment 🙂 And great idea to use a Ziploc to toss it all!

          1. It was good, but I feel the basil and oregano could be less.
            I m not for to much seasoning.

      1. How does this recipe freeze? Should I cook it then freeze it? Mix it, freeze it, cook? Any help, tips would be appreciated! Thank you

        1. I don’t recommend freezing this recipe; the fresh (or roasted) veggies don’t freeze and thaw very well!

  2. DOES the calorie count for this meal include rice. I’m thinking it domes since it is not in the ingredients but I would like to make sure

  3. 5 stars
    This turned out extremely well, and is so adaptable! I used turkey sausage and made enough to fill two sheet pans. It made meals for days! Initially I decided to eat it with cous cous, but ended up preferring it on its own. Thanks so much for this great recipe.

  4. 5 stars
    This recipe looks delicious, and easy! I would appreciate, though, any suggestion(s) on what to use in place of the broccoli. I hate broccoli.

  5. 5 stars
    This turned out great for me! I used frozen baby brussel sprouts instead of broccoli just because I already had them. (I steamed them a couple minutes in the microwave while I was cutting up the other vegetables and they roasted perfectly.) I also used Tofurky Kielbasa for my sausage. The results were delicious- this is definitely in the rotation from now on. Thanks for the terrific recipe!

    1. I’m sorry, I’m not familiar enough with the 21 day fix to give measuring recommendations. Wish I could be of more help!

    2. I’m not 21 Day fix expert, but what I did was cook the sausage on one side veggies on the other. Than I measured 1/2 cup of brown rice (1 Yellow), 1 cup veggies (1 Green), and 3/4 cup sausage (1 Red)

    1. I’m sorry, I’m not familiar enough with Weight watchers to know the points; hopefully someone else can chime in here!

  6. I take recipe headlines with a grain of salt…some are fine, some are okay, some not so great. However, I think this one is truly delicious and is definitely a keeper. I’m not much of a salt person so probably will skip that next time as the pre-cooked chicken sausage was salty enough. Yum and simple!

  7. Would this freeze ok? I’m interested in doing all of the prep pretty much up to cooking, and instead freezing. Not sure how the veggies would come out though?
    Thanks!

    1. I’ve never tried freezing this dish so I really can’t say. I doubt the veggies would be as crisp tender after being frozen, but I could be wrong!

  8. 5 stars
    Just tried this recipe today, and I can definitely say I’ll use it again! It’s a quick and easy way to get in fresh veggies! Thanks for sharing!

  9. 5 stars
    This was so delicious! I’m so happy I came across your recipe. My 2 daughters and I scarfed down the whole dish! Good thing my husband was at work or there may not have been enough:)

  10. This was really delicious! I pre-chopped all of the veggies and only had to add the potatoes and sausage before roasting. Served it with brown rice. Hubby loved it, too! Will definitely make again.

  11. You mentioned in a comment far below that you use precooked sausage – if I’m planning on using uncooked, would I just cook it first and then add it in to the pan when you say to?

    1. I’m sorry I was a little unclear in that response; I’m using smoked turkey sausage so it does need to still be heated through/cooked. Here’s a link to what I’m using: https://www.google.com/search?q=smoked+turkey+sausage&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjZvdLAztTSAhVoqVQKHTdDA-8Q_AUICSgC&biw=1254&bih=612#imgrc=_STrSFhuOCZ3JM:

      What sausage do you have that you want to use? It could probably still cook through in the time depending on what you are using and the size.

      1. I’m wondering the same thing. I’m using freshly ground italian chicken sausage from a deli. Should I cook it first?

        1. It really depends on the size (particularly the thickness) of them. If they are especially large/thick they can take up to 40+ minutes to cook all the way through so in that case you’d want to pre-cook them. But if they are small to medium they should be able to cook in 20-25 minutes

    2. 5 stars
      We sauteed the sausage before adding it to the vegetables since we didn’t have smoked sausage. I also made some changes to the seasoning to accommodate what I had and added 1 teaspoon of lemon pepper – which is one of my favorite seasonings and it was great. We didn’t have red potatoes but used one big white one cut in thin slices and we also added a yellow squash cut like the zucchini. It was delicious! My guys said it was a hit!

  12. 5 stars
    I made this last night and it was delicious! My 10 year old son loved it. I did brown the turkey sausage just a bit on the stove before I cut them up and put them in the pan with the veggies. Also does the calories listed include calories for the rice, and if you can put the saturated fat on here I could manually add this to my foods on my weight watchers tracker. This also was great for leftovers and to pack for lunch.

    1. I’m so happy you enjoyed this!! The nutrition label does not include the rice 🙂 Also, unfortunately, I don’t have a way (yet) to add a saturated fat breakdown on my labels.

  13. 5 stars
    This was so delicious!! I made it on Sunday for my meal-prepped lunches for the week and added some veggie pasta with it instead of rice. So so yummy, I loved it everyday and kept me so full!

    1. How did you reheat it? I am making ahead to take to someone and wondering if I should use the oven to reheat or the microwave.

  14. Such a cute story. Loved it!
    The recipe looks delicious. I hope to make it soon. Im glad someone shared you on facebook, Ill be subscribing…

  15. Oh my heart!!! That is so sweet (and funny). My toddler too comes home from preschool and loves to talk all about the sandbox and his buddy “Jack”. I’m not even sure Jack is a real kid, but I’m hoping so! I make something similar like this in a big pan over the stove but throwing it all in the oven is genius. I have to try your version asap!

  16. 5 stars
    I’m so glad you posted this recipe, I’ve been trying to find something for sausage and this was delicious! My family loved it- even my son who isn’t crazy about veggies. I was out of foil and parchment paper, so I coated the pan with butter, which surprisingly worked great. I also replaced the peppers with grape tomatoes- both my husband and son don’t like peppers. It came out sooo good! Will definitely do it again. Thanks 🙂

  17. Me a sausage lover 😛
    To be frank I never thought that we can make a sausage in that way as well. I am surely gonna try it at home.

    1. Tamillia, that should be okay. I’ve never actually tested it in a toaster over, so I can’t say for sure. You’ll have to let me know. 🙂

  18. I made this for the second time tonight and it was a hit once again. Even my picky eaters end up having seconds! We like it over quinoa (cooked in chicken broth.) Thanks for the great recipe!

    1. I’d toss the shrimp in seasoning, but add it later so it’s not overcooked. Depending on the size of the shrimp it only will need 8-10 minutes cooking time.

  19. Second time cooking in my whole life! My fiancé loves tooo cook, so I never get a chance too! I saw this recipe and I thought I would cook for him! It was an easy recipe and it tasted soooo good!! So glad I was able to cook this time ?

    After seeing the comments I will use the ziploc bag technique!

  20. For the person who asked about Weight Watchers smart points – this recipe (with 4 1/2 tablespoons of oil) is 9 smart points when figured with 6 servings.

    1. I’m so sorry Amy! I have some people looking into it and in the meantime, if you copy and paste the recipe into a word document, you can print it without the commentary and pictures. Thank you for your patience while I worked to get it fixed.

  21. Three out of four of my kids can be picky, but I have made this several times with great results. I made it again last night and even my two year old was scarfing it down. Thank you for such a great recipe and for detailing how big to cut everything.

  22. Do you think it would be good with substituted veggies? I want to substitute green beans for broccoli and mushrooms for carrots and skip potatoes since it is going over rice. Do you think this combo would work well?

  23. Made this and served it over Quinoa. It is awesome. Loved the blend of flavors. I now make it regularly using Polska Kielbasa sausage and have tried it with white sweet potatoes and have subbed in yellow summer squash instead of zucchini but it is great with any combo of meat and veggies. My kiddos love it so much that I now double the sausage and we have plenty for leftovers for lunch the next day. Thanks for sharing.

  24. Question…do you guys use precooked sausage? Sausage in the casings? I tried to make this and bought uncooked in the casing and had to cook it in a pan because it was impossible to cut them! Other than that…it was delicious. I used different seasonings but really enjoyed it 🙂

  25. This is one of 7 meals I feature on my blog as being a great, healthy and easy meal for families. We are going to try it tonight!! Can’t wait, looks so yummy!
    Thanks Chelsea for sharing this recipe with us 🙂

  26. 5 stars
    We’ve made this at least half a dozen times in the last 4 months! We add shrimp to ours too and use jalapeño sausage (?? Texans) it’s so easy and delicious!!

  27. 5 stars
    This recipe is so simple and flavorful. I have made it a few time and it’s always a hit. The only thing I’d change is to not add basil, I’m not a fan other that that it’s get a TEN!!

  28. 5 stars
    This recipe has been a Godsend and I’ve made it every week since I pinned it a few months ago. We leave out the potatoes and I will sometimes have brown rice to keep the carb count lower. It’s easy, quick, flavorful and leaves enough for leftovers. It also gives me a break from all of the bacon and ground beef the Hubs insists on eating! Thanks again!

  29. 5 stars
    The whole family loved it! I usually don’t add this many tablespoons of spices to my veggies, but it totally worked. I appreciate all of the tips on how big to cut each vegetable. Thanks! This recipe’s in the regular rotation from now on.

  30. I made this last night for my family and they loved it! Even my 15 year old stepson liked it (he’s an exceptionally amazing stepson but can be a little picky)! We always ask “the question” to see if a new recipe is good or not. I ask “can I make it again?” And the answer was a definite YES! I used a steakhouse seasoning blend instead of Italian seasoning and omitted the salt and garlic since the blend I used already had both. It was so good and I felt that my family was getting something good for them.

  31. 5 stars
    What a terrific dish! Paired with a nice salad this was a big hit with hubby. I used fresh herbs in place of the dried because I have them in my garden along with minced garlic and organic Hot Italian Chicken sausage. Yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  32. 5 stars
    I have tried this recipe three or four times now and it is PERFECT for my husband and I. It has everything you could want in a meal and the seasonings are so good! I’ve changed up the veggies too – it truly is one of my favorite meals to make!

  33. 5 stars
    I very rarely leave replies to recipes, but I had to let you know how much my family ABSOLUTELY LOVES this meal!!! I’ve made it over 3 dozens times after I pinned it on pintrest, and each time it has come out FANTASTIC! I sent this recipe to my neighbor and she uses it just as frequently as I do. We’ve made it with a wide variety of veggies and each time it comes out great. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!

    1. I’m so thrilled to get your comment and happy this has been a hit! 🙂 Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your review Rachel!

  34. 5 stars
    Tried this recipe last night after seeing it on pinterest last week! The recipe is delicious and was worth the effort but it took wayy longer than 15 minutes to prep, closer to 35 for me. Plus it made so much that I had to make it in two batches because it was overflowing in the large sheet pan I used. Other than those two things, I highly recommend this recipe!

    1. It took longer than 15 minutes for me, too, but I made a double batch and added more veggies, so I expected it to take longer to cook, but it was so worth it!

  35. 5 stars
    We make this recipe at least once a week. It is my husbands favorite! We add portobellos! So yummy! And it makes great left overs.

    1. Hmm I haven’t ever tried that, but I think the veggies might end up mushy/soggy. Wish I could be of more help.

  36. Can this be made as a meal prep lunch? The directions don’t say anything about storing it even though the title indicates that possibly.

  37. 5 stars
    I wanted to thank you for this AMAZING recipe! So simple and flavorful. I’ve been cooking low carb dinners for 2 months and this is the only one my husband has actually liked.

  38. This was absolutely fantastic! I added some freshly chopped garlic just because I love the taste and my family devoured it. I’m not usually a sausage fan but this was SO good! Can’t wait to make it again!

  39. I appreciate the directions on how to cook the veggies so they cook (mostly) evenly! I’m going to try this with vegetarian sausage since I don’t eat meat, but I bet it will turn out great.

  40. 5 stars
    Curious if you’ve ever used chicken. The adults in the house love the sausage and this recipe but the kids are not fans!

  41. 5 stars
    Your recipe is truly amazing! I made this for my boyfriend and his family and they absolutely loved it. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to try your other ones.

  42. 5 stars
    I made 2 big pans of this the first time I made it. I thought I had made way too much, but, we devoured it in just 2 days! I’m making it again tomorrow…can’t wait. It’s so easy and delicious. Thanks, for the recipe!

  43. 5 stars
    I found this recipe some time last year and have made it regularly ever since. It is one of my favorite dinners! I am going to try and make this a freezer meal as I am due for my second in a couple weeks. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    1. I’m so glad you love this! I’d love to hear how you liked it as a freezer meal!! ALSO congrats!!!! Good luck with baby number two!:)

  44. 5 stars
    I love this, thank you so much for sharing! I made this on Sunday and am now eating it for the 3rd day in a row and it’s still delicious! I really appreciate you including detailed instructions on how to cut everything so it cooks evenly because that is usually my downfall!

    1. Ahh i’m so glad you have enjoyed this! I cook it up at the start of the week sometimes and use it for meal prep! I hope you continue to enjoy! 🙂

  45. 5 stars
    Omg this was delicious. So easy to make and it made two baking pans worth for me and my fiance. We were eating it cold the next day it was so good! Next time I think I’ll add brussel sprouts. Definitely 5 stars as is though!

    1. Ooh it would be awesome with brussel sprouts! I’ll have to try it! I’m so glad you guys enjoyed!! 🙂

  46. 5 stars
    This may be a silly question but is the calorie count per serving or for the whole pan?
    I tried to read all the comments but there are so many! 🙂
    It’s soooooo delicious!

  47. 5 stars
    I love this recipe! The seasoning makes the vegetables so yummy and flavorful. My family loves it, and I cook the sausage separately just because I don’t like my vegetables too soft, but still amazing!

  48. 5 stars
    Love this recipe! Replaced Bell Peppers with mushrooms, and they cooked perfectly.

    I was wondering if you had a fridge life in mind? Is five days reasonable?

  49. 5 stars
    Thank you so much for this recipe! I have made it two nights in a row for extra meal prep and my husband and I LOVE it! So fragrant and flavorful and really encourages us to eat more vegetables. A small side of brown rice and it’s such a complete satisfying meal.

  50. I accidentally added the parmesan into the sauce mixture, will it still cook/taste the same or should I toss the sauce and remake it?

  51. 5 stars
    Great recipe! I used frozen broccoli since we had some in the freezer but all other veggies were fresh. With the frozen, I nuked them for a few minutes and patted them dry. I also used baby carrots since that is what we had as well. This definitely makes a lot and my husband is taking leftovers for lunch tomorrow so a win in my book!

  52. 5 stars
    Amazing! this recipe has been a Godsend and I’ve made it every week since I pinned it a few months ago. We leave out the potatoes and I will sometimes have brown rice to keep the carb count lower. It’s easy, quick, flavorful and leaves enough for leftovers. It also gives me a break from all of the bacon and ground beef the Hubs insists on eating!

    1. I’m sooo glad you enjoyed this! That’s definitely my favorite part of this meal, how filling it is, while also being so healthy! 🙂

  53. Looks delicious! If I want to use frozen veggies instead.. should I let them defrost or put in the microwave before adding the seasoning? If so, how long?

  54. This dish is wonderful! So filling and helps me get in all my veggies and taste great! I eat over brown rice and take out the potatoes as to not have too many carbs! Thanks for the recipe! 🙂

  55. 5 stars
    This was yummy! Made it last night and everyone (4 kids, hubs) went for seconds. The kids asked me to make it again tonight and this time we’re gonna sub broccoli and zucchini for the bell peppers and carrots. Thanks for posting!

    1. Ahh I’m soo happy to hear this! I’m sure it’ll be amazing with zucchini. Thanks so much for your comment! 🙂

  56. What sausage do you use for the recipe? I saw somewhere that you used smoked sausage which is already cooked. Does it still work if you use raw Italian sausage and have you done it with this before?

    1. Yes, smoked sausage! I haven’t actually tried this with raw Italian sausage, sorry to not be of more help!

  57. 5 stars
    Great recipe! We omitted the carrots and peppers but every else was the same. Used my 12 inch cast iron skillet and cooked the whole thing on the grill to keep the kitchen cool. Did cook the sausage first though. Easier to slice then. Whole family loved this!

    1. I am sooo happy to hear you loved this!! It sounds amazing hon a cast iron skillet!! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  58. Hi! I love this recipe so much!!! It’s a staple recipe in our home. We also love the one pan roasted garlic and herb sausage but I can’t access it. Your website says error when I click on it. I hope this gets resolved soon, one pan sausage diners are our faves!!!

  59. 5 stars
    I love this recipe and I make it all the time. I eat it as-is, but my boys like it over mini bow-ties. Nobody likes roasted broccoli, so I cook that separately and throw it in the pan with the other veggies the last 5 minutes of cook time.
    Thank you for this!

  60. 5 stars
    This colorful recipe is sure to cheer anyone up, it looks super delicious and healthy an excellent choice for growing kids, hope your kid is over the heartbreak now.

  61. 5 stars
    This has been a family favorite since you posted it. Have a question. Exactly how much is a serving? Thanks for sharing such a great recipe. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Lisa! 🙂 If you serve it with a grain; it serves 6; so equally dividing the entire recipe by 6, each portion is a serving! 🙂

  62. 5 stars
    WOW! I spent the weekend camping with my daughter, son-in-law and two VERY energetic little girls. I needed a dinner that was fast, nourishing easy clean-up and comforting. Yes, at 62 I am done in, and basically spending today only twitching to confirm life.
    THIS RECIPE IS AMAZING!!!
    Used Kielbasa, broccoli, baby carrots, orange bell, zucchini, yellow squash, onion, garlic and Italian Seasoning (yes, I cheated). Oven was done preheating when I finished prep.

    Next time this goes on the camping trip!!!

    OUTSTANDING!!!!!

  63. 5 stars
    Oh my goodness !!! This was the best!!! My son and I finished it !! It’s an A double ++!!! We followed it to the tee !!! Just a tad bit more olive oil since we put extra broccoli !! And we ate it alone no rice or quinoa !! We used turkey sausage it was so freakin good ! We will make it again and again

  64. Hi I love this meal but I don’t use the sausage in it to cut back a little but was wondering if you would know the nutrition facts without the sausage ? I’m trying to add it to my fitness pal but it won’t take away the sausage! Thanks!

  65. 5 stars
    oh wow great ! healthy and fresh recipe sausage veggies tride and it at home on holiday and enjoyed with family healthy italian sausage veggies .thanks for this post

  66. 5 stars
    Fantastic! Better than I expected! The only thing I changed was adding 1/2 tbsp of onion powder instead of 1/2 tsp. It was an accident but it still came out delicious

    1. I haven’t weighed/measured out individual servings on this recipe. To figure it out — you can weigh the total amount of the recipe and then divide that by 6 (Each part will be 1 serving you can individual measure out :))
