Keep dinner simple by quickly roasting sausage, zucchini, broccoli, and bell pepper in this easy sheet pan meal.

Sausage with some combination of veggies is one of my favorite dinner solutions when I’m feeling like I want to put in the minimum effort. I feel like sometimes we put so much pressure on ourselves to prepare a more complicated meal. It’s just not necessary, friends. Simple can be totally delicious!

To keep this meal low carb, serve with cauliflower rice, Roasted Spaghetti Squash, or a side salad. Want more carbs? Try serving with white or brown rice!

For this recipe you’ll need (full list of ingredients and instructions are in the recipe card below):

  • Sausage
  • Zucchini
  • Broccoli
  • Bell peppers or mini sweet peppers
  • Olive oil
  • Italian seasoning blend
  • Seasonings

Spread the sausage, zucchini, broccoli, and peppers on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Drizzle with olive oil and all the seasonings. Use a spatula to spread everything around so that it’s evenly coated. Spread in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake until zucchini is perfectly tender and enjoy!

What sausage works best?

Use your favorite fully cooked sausage. Chicken, beef, turkey, or pork would all work. I prefer Applegate chicken sausages because the ingredient list is short but the flavor is always great. I get mine at Whole Foods or Sprouts. (Not an ad. Just sharing my preference if you’re looking for a brand to try.) Two other brands you might enjoy are Bilinski’s and Aidells.

What size sheet pan should you use?

I use a 12 x 17 baking sheet for all my sheet pan recipes. This accommodates a lot of food without overcrowding. If your baking sheet is smaller, use two instead of one. (Don’t overcrowd.)

Does this sheet pan meal freeze well?

Yes! If making this meal for future enjoyment you can freeze it in an airtight freezer safe container (like freezer bags). Then thaw and reheat in a skillet on the stovetop or in the microwave.
