Roasted Italian Sausage With Onions and Peppers

One-Pot (or Rather, Pan) Roasted Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

On a busy weeknight there's pretty much nothing better than a one-pot (or in this case, pan) meal. That is, a one-pan meal that actually tastes delicious. This hearty combination of roasted sausages, potatoes, bell peppers, and onions certainly qualifies.

After about 10 minutes of prep work (if that), all you need to do is stick the pan in the oven and let the oven work its magic: the sausages get snappy while the onions and bell peppers soften so much that they practically melt in your mouth, and everything — especially the potatoes — benefits from the flavorful pork fat that renders out of the sausages.

Roasted Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions


Aim to cut the vegetables and sausage chunks into roughly equal sizes; you may have to cut them into fewer or more pieces than the ingredients list suggests. Leftovers can be transformed into a hash: chop leftover sausage and veggies into small pieces and fry without oil until hot. Top with a poached or fried egg and some grated parmesan cheese.

Roasted Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions


  1. 1 pound sweet or hot Italian sausages (or a combination of the two), cut crosswise into thirds
  2. 1 pound small red potatoes, cut into large chunks
  3. 1 large (about 1 pound) onion, cut into 12 wedges
  4. 2 red and/or yellow peppers, cut lengthwise into 8 pieces
  5. A few sprigs rosemary
  6. About 1 tablespoon olive oil
  7. A heaping teaspoon kosher salt
  8. Freshly cracked black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Arrange the sausages, potatoes, onion wedges, peppers, and rosemary in one layer on a half-sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, paying particular attention to the vegetables (the sausages are already seasoned); gently toss to coat.
  3. Roast for 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender and sausages are lightly browned, stirring once halfway through roasting.

Yum, this sounds good. I love easy recipes like this. I just did a roast for dinner tonight with this great marinade that I found and tried out. * 1/2 cup Dijon or Creole mustard or other spicy brown mustard (I didn't have a full half of cup so I just used about 1/4 cup) * 2 tablespoons red wine (and then I used more like a cup of red wine) * 3 large cloves garlic, minced * 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf tarragon ( I used fresh because it is what I had on hand) * 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper I then added carrots, celery, onions, a tomato, and about a cup of water to the pot with the roast and marinade in it and put it in the oven on 325 for a few hours. I'm living in London and my oven is a cirotherm electric so I can't give you exact temp and time I cooked this for, any standard Roast recipe should be able to give you time and temp. Can't wait to try out this Italian sausage one now!!

I love the fresh turkey italian sausage links, you get a similar taste with less fat and plus you can remove the casing on them too if you want!

I made this last night, and it was wonderful. It has to be one of the easiest dinners I've made in a long time. Even my kids likes it.

Hmmm, I wonder if I could do chicken or turkey sausage with this instead?? I hate Italian sausages, but the meal looks yummy otherwise.

krazykarot: why don't you just substitute green peppers?

not a fan of red or yellow peppers (green only for me! ;) ), any ideas on a good substitute?

This sounds good. My hubby is a Brit, so he loves anything with bangers. I would add a little bit of balsamic vinegar and oregano or rosemary to the oil before roasting.
