Recently, it seems like one pan recipes are unavoidable. Praised as easy, quick, and delicious, every other recipe I come across (okay, maybe an exaggeration) boasts that you only need one pan to make a full meal. I wasn't fully on board with the whole idea because it just seemed like everything would taste the same. I mean, you add some stuff covered in all of the same seasonings to the same pan and roast it at the same temperature - doesn't it seem like it would all just blend together?
After reading a million one pan recipes (still an exaggeration) though, I finally caved the other day and made one, and FINE I TAKE IT ALL BACK ONE PAN MEALS ARE MAGICAL. As we were eating, I kept saying to Tim, "Wait, this is really good. Like, REALLY good! Don't you think this is really good?" Side note: we took personality quizzes at work recently and apparently my personality types craves affirmation - can you tell? Luckily, Tim agreed that this was, in fact, REALLY good.
This is probably the easiest thing I've ever made. I just sliced up a few veggies and sausages, tossed everything in olive oil and seasoning, and roasted it. THAT'S IT. Personally, I love sausages covered in dijon mustard, but I guesssss you could use another condiment, or just eat them plain. I used turkey sausage to lighten it up, and I swear you couldn't taste the difference. Throw it all on a roll for a sandwich, or just eat right off the pan (like we did, oops) - regardless of how you eat it, I promise you'll love it!
One Pan Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onion
