Roasted Potatoes, Chicken Sausage and Peppers

2 thumbs up from my hubby on this one! And, it was probably one of the easiest dinners I've made in awhile! With sausage, potatoes, peppers, and onions, it's a complete meal! No side dishes necessary. Recipe courtesy of Skinnytaste.com.


Ingredients
1.5 pounds (about 3 large) potatoes, russet or new
1 medium onion, peeled and cut into chunks
2 red bell peppers, seeds removed and cut into 1 inch pieces
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
1 tsp. chopped rosemary (fresh or dry)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Non-stick cooking spray
1 pound Italian chicken sausage (Al Fresco's) - cut each link into 6-7 slices
  • Note: This was my first time trying Al Fresco's Chicken Sausage. I will continue to buy it! So yummy, and good for you, too! I bought the variety with jalapenos and roasted red peppers...I would definitely recommend it if you like a little spice!

Directions
Cut the potatoes into small 1" x 1/2 inch pieces. These take the longest to cook so cutting them small ensures everything cooks evenly.

Preheat oven to 375°. Spray one large non-stick baking sheet, or two small ones with cooking spray to prevent the potatoes from sticking. I covered my baking sheet with foil for easy clean-up!

In a large bowl, combine potatoes, onions, peppers, olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary and garlic powder. Mix well to be sure everything is coated with oil and seasoned evenly. Pour onto the prepared baking sheet and place in the center of the oven; bake for 15 minutes.


Use a spoon to toss so that nothing sticks or burns.

Add the sausage to the baking sheet with the potatoes and vegetables and bake, tossing once or twice for 25-35 minutes, or until your potatoes are cooked through.

Cooking time will very depending on the thickness of your potatoes and sausage, so keep an eye so they don't burn. Serve & enjoy!

  1. great idea! thanks for posting- we had this for dinner, I added zucchini, carrots and used basil instead of rosemary. I also used our fave- the chicken apple sausage
