I hope meal planning has been going as well for you guys as it’s been for me! I really appreciate the time spent prepping on the weekends when I’m absolutely exhausted mid-week and the last thing I want to do is cook! As mentioned before, I really want to focus on being consistent and making this a lifestyle change rather than a fad. Therefore, I’m continuing to focus on super easy recipes that can be executed with minimal effort and time. This week’s recipe that I found is another “one pan”–I absolutely loved the chicken and veggie recipe from last week and thought to mix it up again! This is also a great gluten-free option. Try it out and as always, please let me know how it goes for you!
- 2 large carrots ~2 cups
- 2 red potatoes ~2 cups
- 1 small-medium zucchini ~2 and 1/3 cups
- 2 red peppers ~2 cups
- 1 head broccoli ~1 and 1/2 cups
- 16 ounces Smoked Italian Turkey or Chicken Sausage
- 1/2 tablespoon each: dried basil, dried oregano, dried parsley, garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon each: onion powder, dried thyme
- 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated (optional)
- 4 and 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- fresh parsley, salt and pepper (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or foil (easy clean-up) and set aside.
Prepare the veggies: *It is important to prep the veggies according to directions to ensure they all cook at the same time*
Peel and very thinly slice the carrots. Wash and (if desired, peel) chop the red potatoes. You want the pieces quite small here. (Try halving the potatoes and then cutting each half into 10-12 pieces)
Halve the zucchini and then cut thick coins of zucchini. Coarsely chop the broccoli. Remove the stems and seeds from the peppers and chop into medium-sized pieces. Chop the sausage into thick coins.
Pour all the veggies and sausage on the sheet pan.
In a small bowl combine all of the seasonings and salt and pepper if desired with the olive oil. Stir to combine.
Pour the seasoning & oil mixture on top of the veggies and sausage and thoroughly toss to coat.
Place in the heated oven for 15 minutes. Remove and toss around the veggies and sausage and return to the oven for another 10-20 minutes or until veggies are crisp tender.
Remove and top (if desired) with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.
Serve on top of rice or quinoa (if desired). Also great plain!
