Roasted Sausage, Potatoes and Peppers

Italian sausage, potatoes, bell peppers and onions oven-roasted with fresh rosemary in an olive oil and parmesan cheese dressing.

Yes, I’m still on a roasting binge. No, the end is not near.

One of the many things I love about roasting is the oven does most of the work! A few minutes of prep combined with some flavorful seasonings and dinner is as good as done. It will seem as if you slaved over the stove for hours when nothing could be farther from the truth.

The beauty of this recipe is in its versatility. It’s easy to change the flavors by using different sausages. I used the skinny, coiled sausage with a tomato and basil flavor but any sausage will work! Use your favorite.

The dressing packs a ton of flavor with olive oil, Italian seasonings, garlic, dijon and parmesan cheese. It doesn’t hurt that fresh rosemary and potatoes are a natural couple. The aroma of the two cooking together ranks as one of the best – on the list somewhere up near fresh bread. Your entire house will smell absolutely divine.

If you happen to have your kitchen windows open the otherworldly smell will waft its way through your neighborhood causing your neighbors to wonder what you’re cooking and can they come for dinner?

They might show up in your yard. Uninvited. It’s been known to happen. Best keep them windows closed. Or plan on making extra.
