Sausage, sweet potato, broccoli, and bell peppers seasoned with olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning and roasted to perfection. This quick 20-minute meal is a low-carb, healthy and packed full of flavor dinner option that is also great for meal-prep too!Sheet pan dishes have become my favorite and most exclusive way to cook most meat and veggies. They’re quick, easy, healthy and best of all, they’re effortless. Just one pan and no dishes to clean? I’m in!
In the past few years, I’ve shared many easy sheet pan recipes and this one is another favorite of mine. It’s very similar to the popular 15-minute chicken and veggies dish but instead of chicken, we’re switching things up a bit and opting in for sausage.
I used smoked turkey sausage for this recipe. It can be found in the fridge aisle at your local supermarket and it usually comes either fully or partially cooked, but it will depend on the brand. Overall, any sausage should work for this recipe.
To being, chop all the veggies into small cubes. I used sweet potato, broccoli, and bell pepper. Asparagus, brussels sprouts, zucchini, onion, or baby carrots.
Next, slice the sausage into small 1” rounds and combine the veggies and sausage in a large baking sheet along with olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning and salt & pepper. To switch things up, you can always use either taco, cajun or your favorite spice blend place of the Italian seasoning.
- 12-16 ounces Smoked Turkey or Chicken Sausage about 3 cups
- 2 cups sweet potato diced into 1/2'' cubes
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 1 cup bell pepper chopped (any colors you like)
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning or taco, Cajun of your favorite spice blend!
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- Pre-heat oven to 400F.
- Slice the sausage into 1'' rounds. Dice the sweet potatoes into small 1/2'' cubes.
- Add the sausage, veggies and minced garlic to a large baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the Italian spices or your favorite spice blend. Seasoning with salt and pepper. Toss veggies with your hands until they are fully combined and coated with olive oil and spices.
- Bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway. Enjoy with rice, quinoa, in sandwiches or as is for weight loss!
We overdid our Bogo’s at Publix, so this was good timing for me. I went to Asia for my spices, sesame oil soy sauce, etc, and I used fennel, brocolli, carrots potatoes, etc. I used smoked beef sausage and Aleppo pepper to top it off. A Good Old American Pie. We are so lucky for our Naties and immigrants thatconinues to influences our own dishes.
So easy! I made this with hot Italian sausage, broccoli, red and green bell pepper, red onion, garlic roughly chopped, sweet potatoes and red potatoes. It made two sheet pans and took about 30 mins at 400°. I used a bunch of random spices and mixed it all together. We paired it with a wild rice and *chefs kiss*! I love the versatility and simplicity!

I make a variation of this recipe almost weekly. I use whatever vegetables I have in my house, such as white or red or sweet or fingerling potatoes, red or green peppers, onions, broccoli, green beans, brussel sprouts, zucchini, or carrots, then I toss with olive oil and homemade taco seasoning. After roasting 20 minutes I add sliced, fully cooked chicken sausage. I took some liberties with the recipe but the concept is the same and it’s a great way to use up extra veggies.
Elaine V Arnold says
Had to use frozen sweet potatoes., no problem.
Added 1/2 a white onion sliced. Only had frozen mixed veggies, used them. Used Mrs Dash table blend instead of pepper plus a smidgen of salt. Half way through I sprinkled some shredded Colby Jack cheese on top. SO DELICIOUS!
Could someone give me the nutritional facts for this please
There is an app called MyFitnessPal for phones (or a website online) where you put in the entire recipe ingredient list and how many servings. You can modify based on what specific ingredient you used. It will break everything down. I’m sure there are more online as well. You shouldn’t really use a basic recipe and rely on those food stats because not everything is the same and could change your numbers immensely even with a brand change of the same item. Just a suggestion, but really it’s better to rely on your own info than something posted on the web.
Please put nutritional values in recipes
Helpful to me . I’m not down loading any app
Most food sites now have it .
Would you like someone to come over and cook it for you as well? Do some research.
Maria Peterson says
Can you use canned yams?
I’ve never tried it with them so I can’t suggest it. Sorry!
If I use frozen sweet potatoes and frozen veggies, should I just keep an eye on the cooking time? I am making this for a big family dinner. Everyone is going to love it!
Yes, you can but as you mentioned, it will take a little longer to bake so I would just keep an eye on the baking time to ensure they’re fully cooked through.
I used frozen sweet potatoes, so good. Same anoint of cooking time, 1st time making this
Kimberley Roy says
Soo good and kid friendly. My 8 year old loved it besides the bell pepper but gave her more broccoli and she was happy!
So glad to hear that, Kimberley!
What’s the nutritional info on this
Maybe a basic question but do you make this with pre cooked sausage, or raw? I have a Kielbasa in the fridge I’m thinking of making this with today.
Grrr… why can I only pin your main page, but not individual recipes?!! Please add that feature (or tell me where to find it if I’m somehow missing it).
Made this last night… reduced the broccoli and sweet potato a bit to add some patty pan squash, reduced the oil, used Italian seasoning, and Amylu Andouille pre-cooked chicken sausage, and served it with cooked quinoa topped with a little Cholupa hot sauce. Delicious
I’m sorry about that, Jamie! Are you on mobile or desktop? we have a few pin options on every page. There’s a pin option on the bottom of every post, in the recipe box, and on the left side of the page. Additionally, you can pin images by hovering over them. Please let me know if you still need further help!
I am having this same problem and I am on a PC computer. The Pinterest link at the bottom of the recipe does not work and I have hovered over each picture and no pinterest icon shows up to click. I have also tried to click on the images and it still does not work. There does not seem to be any way to pin this recipe.
Oh no, I’m sorry about that! I’m not sure why the pin buttons are not working. Can you try pinning it directly from my Pinterest account?
Jane Gephart says
I par-boiled baby red potatoes then tossed them in the seasoning and a little olive oil & butter…then used them in the recipe as written SUCH an easy, tasty dinner!
Yum, that sounds delicious!

What is the nutritional information on this dish?
Nicole Zile says
Making this tonight can it be make in pressure cooker or air fryer?
You can air fryer them for 20 minutes on 400F
Pretty good but mine turned out soggy. I used, zucchini, broccoli, squash, peppers, onions and cherry tomatoes. Still tasted delicious, but I’m a bit sad it was soggy.
amber, i’m not the creator/writer, but wanted to help if i can. perhaps your sheet pan was too crowded? a crowded sheet pan will steam the food versus browning it. i usually split my sheet pan meals into two pans, with one on each rack. i rotate the racks mid-way through cooking. i hope this might help you with future sheet pan meals.
My veg was still rock hard at 20 mins
Hi Kelly. I’m not the OP, however, I’ve been making a version of this for so long… did you use an air fryer for 20 minutes, or did you put the pan in the oven at 400* for 20 minutes? I don’t have an air fryer so I just default to my oven.. I cook my version of this recipe at 425*-450* for 30-45 minutes… a bit longer, a lot of times, because I like for my veggies to be on the crispier and al dente side of things.. I am not an expert or anything, I just thought I’d put in my 2 cents. 😊
This with the Cajun seasoning and some Halloumi cheese. Love it! Thanks for sharing.
LeeAnn Colwell says
What are the nutrition facts for this recipe? Carbs, fiber, sugars, etc
This was delicious!!! And super easy to make!! I will be making this again for sure!!
It was amazing and awesome it had loads of different tastes to it and I would recommend using chicken sausage and I would try it again and make it . It was the bestest thing I’ve ever had on this app
Soo Good!!! The only thing was that it took 40 Mins to cook this in my oven, but other than that it was amazing! I used red Potatoes as I didn’t have any Sweet potatoes and added onions. A new staple meal for me! Thanks so much.
Can i freeze extra.
Do you start out with raw or cooked sausage?
Raw sausage, but if you only have cooked you may be able to stir it in once the veggies are almost done.
I loved this. mY WHOLE FAMILY LOVED AND ENJOYED THIS. i AM GLAD that i doubled all my INGREDIENTS for extra.
ASHLEY Williams says
I have made This several times! I use cajun SEASONING and garlic, yellow and orange PEPPERs, zucchini, broccoli, and beef smoked sausage. And Then i make HOMEMADE mashed POTATOES without skins to put under. You can also add either balsamic vinaigrette or an Italian to add if you like to make it saucy.
But besides the point, this is a PHENOMENAL recipe and i highly recommended it. Enjoy!
Made this for food prep with brown rice. I Thought it was amazing. Making it again right now for the rest of the wee. I also aDded cooekd shrimp In the last 5 minutes. Love it. And so simple
Does this need to be covered with foil when cooking?
Nope, just bake as is!
How do I know it’s “healthy” for me if you won’t supply the nutritional info?
There’s no need to be rude, Helena. The ingredients are basic so you can look up the nutritional info for yourself. Since they vary depending how much you eat or what your choice of meat & veggies is, it’s unreasonable to expect Layla to provide these.
Helena, Plug the ingredients/quantities you use into a nutrition app and divide the results by the number of servings you use. Not that difficult.
Yes we will use our psychic powers and predict what sausage you are using.
Honestly if you don’t know enough about nutrition to know why it isn’t provided then I would wonder what the heck you are using it for. Counting macros based on a recipe using ingredients you didn’t use isn’t going to give you accurate info.
This is a great recipe. The one note I’d make is that it vastly underestimates cook time. In reality, to get things golden and caramelized, plan for ~40-45 minutes bake time (flipping several occasions throughout).
i cannot agree more. It definitely takes longer than 20 to cook the sweet potatoes. I even diced them very small.
Denholm heap says
Ill be honest i THOUGHT this was going to be… poop…. but i THOUGHT ill give it a chance, i soon changed my mind within a SECOND of it hitting the table. So quick, simple and amazing taste! Fed 2 of us TONIGHT and dinners tomorrow! Great recipe!
Shelby veliz says
IT was delicoUs and so easy to make! Definitely will make it again.
Brittany utley says
I DIDN’T expect This to taste so good! Even my 11 month old choWed dowN. This is definitely a keeper.
Susan E. Kehoe says
This was really good. i used spicy red pepper sausage and tiny meatballs because i wasn’t sure if my husband would like the sausage. I also added sliced zucchini. Thumbs up! i’ll certainly make it again
*awesome* recipe!! i loooove how simple the ingredients are, and how delicious the end result turns out to be 🙂 we used beef sausage, sweet potatoes, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower and zucchini and it was delicious 🙂 my husband and i have definitely found our new go-to website for simple, healthy and incredible meals 🙂 <3
Thanks so much for the kind words, Lizzy 🙂 It really does mean a lot to me when I make people smile and enjoy cooking healthier <3
I really liked it ! But how much calories this could be with rice? Where is the nutrtion fact for this recipe?
Whats the calorIes?
MaDe it tonight using stir fry frozen veggies then I added halved cherry tomatoes and used herb seasoning. Wow! So good. Hubby gobbled it and so did I!APPROXIMATELY how many CALORIES are in the original recipe? Will make it again soon!
Download a nutrition app, and enter quantity and ingredients YOU used, then divide the results by the number of servings you got. Simple.
This one pan healthy italian sausage and veggies recipe looks absolutely fantastic. Beautiful photos, too. I look forward to trying this. Thx for sharing Chelsea!
I made this last night for my family and they loved it! Even my 15 year old stepson liked it (he’s an exceptionally amazing stepson but can be a little picky)! We always ask “the question” to see if a new recipe is good or not. I ask “can I make it again?” And the answer was a definite YES! I used a steakhouse seasoning blend instead of Italian seasoning and omitted the salt and garlic since the blend I used already had both. It was so good and I felt that my family was getting something good for them.
I’m so happy to hear your family enjoyed the recipe, Becky! My daughters and husband also enjoyed this dish very much. The little one loves the sausage! 🙂
Becky what brand of steakhouse seasoning did you use?
Hi Crystal! I used McCormick GrillMates Steakhouse Onion Burger.
