The sun is peeking through the clouds today and it's making me anxious for our trip to Myrtle Beach in a few weeks. Gorgeous scenery and miles of sandy beaches are calling my name! Since I'm in a cheerful mood this week, I wanted to create a colorful recipe that makes me think of rainbow filled skies. This Sheet Pan Sausage Skillet is the perfect dish to brighten your day. It's simple to make, and it was a hit with the kids. So that's an added bonus! I think what really drew my family into this dish, though, is the herbs. I used a blend of dried herbs in this recipe to really bring out the flavor of the vegetables. If your kids are like mine, plain veggies aren't always a crowd pleaser. But a dose of herbs makes "the medicine go down" (so to speak) in a very delicious way!
One herb blend I used in this Sheet Pan Sausage Dinner recipe is called Herbs of Provence. If you don't have this on hand, don't worry. It's simply a blend of basil, thyme, marjoram, tarragon, bay leaf, oregano, lavender, and fennel. So a combination of these herbs can be substitute in its place.
Hope your skies are bright and sunny today as we head into the weekend! Here's how I made this Sheet Pan Sausage Supper:
Ingredients: 2 fourteen ounce packages precooked smoked sausages cut into thin slices; 1 white onion; 1 zucchini; 1 bunch broccoli florets; 3 large carrots cut lengthwise and thinly sliced; one red pepper with seeds removed and cut into thin slices; 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil; 1 tsp. Italian seasoning; 1 tablespoon Herbs of Provence; 1 tsp. dill weed; 1 tsp. sea salt; 1/2 tsp. pepper; 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse vegetables and slice. Cut sausage into thin strips. Place sausage and vegetables on a foil lined 18x 13 sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Combine seasonings in a small bowl. Stir. Sprinkle over top of sausage and veggies. Bake for 15 minutes. Stir. Drizzle with extra olive oil if dry. Return to oven. Bake for 15 additional minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
