Seriously, sheet pan meals are amazing. What can I say? I love convenience in the kitchen! In case you were wondering, This Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggies recipe confirmed that I’m a baking sheet believer. While I won’t throw out my other kitchen tools like my Instant Pot or my Crock Pot, I am definitely adding easy sheet pan recipes into my arsenal. I love cooking but there’s really nothing like quick prep and dinner in less than an hour.

The original recipe was light on spice. If you’ve followed my blog throughout this past year you know that for me, the more spice the merrier. I took the liberty of kicking things up a notch because who really loves bland veggies? There was some concern that the extra spice blend was going to be a little too much, but once I topped the sausage and vegetables with cheese, there was no denying I made the right choice. That’s something I truly love about cooking, the ability to experiment. Not only could you experiment with the types of vegetables to use, but you could also vary the type of sausage- beef, pork, or chicken! The options are endless but I went with an Italian style chicken sausage which paired well will the added parmesan cheese.

I loved this recipe not only because it was easy to make but it also felt healthy. Yes, I put mounds of parmesan cheese but with chicken sausage and a rainbow assortment of beans, broccoli, peppers, and potatoes it was a nice change of pace from my streak of eating take-out food. I made rice for the bowls this time around but it really wasn’t necessary because you have the potatoes in the vegetable mix. They make this meal feel filling. Adding the rice makes the leftovers last longer, and I definitely wasn’t mad at that!
