Simple Sausage and Peppers

Inspired by author and chef Melissa Clark’s wonderful book, Dinner: Changing the Game: A Cookbook, and maybe by a tiny bit of overexposure to our kitchen these last few months, we decided to chart a simple course for everyday meals this summer. Four sheet pan dinners to get us through the weekdays. Fresh ingredients. Loads of flavor. One pan. From oven to plate… simply delicious!

Make a healthy meal in a hurry with this savory sausage and pepper recipe. Just season, roast, and enjoy!

Simple Sausage and Peppers Recipe


1 lb. Italian sausages
1 lb. bell peppers
1 lb. cherry tomatoes
½ lb. baby red potatoes
1 yellow onion
2 shallots
1 tbsp oregano


  1. Score 1 lb. Italian sausages with knife. Can be sweet or spicy or a little of both.
  2. Cut 1 lb. bell peppers into eighths. Can be red, green or yellow, or a mix. If you like spicy, throw in some jalapeño or Scotch bonnets.
  3. Slice 1 lb. cherry tomatoes in half. Cut ½ lb. of baby red potatoes in half. Toss in olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast everything on a sheet pan at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  4. Slice one yellow onion and two shallots. Toss in olive oil with salt and pepper, and 1 tbsp oregano. Add to sheet pan and broil about 6 inches from flame for approximately 10 minutes until cooked through and slightly charred.

We gratefully acknowledge the wonderful author and chef Melissa Clark, who set us on this flavorful path! Please order her very helpful and delicious book: Dinner: Changing the Game: A Cookbook.
