This Italian Sausage Sheet Pan dinner is a healthy choice for dinner and is also keto friendly. Sheet Pan Dinners are easy and make cleanup a breeze. All the ingredients for this healthy one pot meal is placed on one large cookie sheet and baked.
Start your baked Italian Sausage dinner by cutting up the veggies first. Chop one yellow bell pepper and one red bell pepper into bite-size chunks. Separate and cut the broccoli into bite-size florets.
Place the broccoli and peppers on a large baking sheet and spread out evenly. I just love this combination of veggies, they are so bright and colorful. It is said one eats with their eyes first and I totally believe it.
Pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the sheet pan dinner vegetables. And toss them to coat well, then spread them out as evenly as possible.
We like to use garlic powder not garlic salt because sometimes garlic salt just tweaks the saltiness too much. I guess I am a little bit of a control freak when it comes to seasonings but I like to be in charge of the seasonings. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of Garlic Powder over all the veggies.
We have just recently discovered Himalayan pink salt, its said to contain more minerals and nutrients. The darker the salt to more nutrient-rich it is or so they say. I just love using it and the added health benefits are always a plus with me. Also sprinkle on freshly ground black pepper.
Add 1 tsp dried basil and toss all the vegetables to evenly distribute the seasonings. We used dried basil but if you use freshly chopped remember it’s a 3 to 1 conversion. So use 3 teaspoons or 1 tablespoon of fresh basil instead of 1 teaspoon of dried.
Slice the sausage into bite size pieces and place evenly around the tray making sure not to overcrowd. Everything will cook better if it is in one layer.
Place in oven and bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until sausage is thoroughly cooked and the vegetables are tender.
Remove from oven and sprinkle parmesan cheese over the baking sheet for garnish and flavor. And it only takes a little bit of cheese to make it deliciously flavorful.
