Lately I have had an obsession with sheet pan dinners. I keeping seeing them on so many different food sites and they look so good. I’m all for getting meat, potatoes and vegetables all on the same pan. I’ve already made sheet pan chicken fajitas and a salmon sheet pan dinner.

These meals are convenient to make and there is very little clean up. When I looked in my freezer to plan dinner last week, I saw a package of turkey sausage. Of course, a sausage, asparagus and potato sheet pan dinner was born.

I always line my sheet pans with parchment paper or aluminum foil.  No one likes to have to scrub pans and after dinner is served, all I have to do is throw away the liner. No elbow grease is needed.

In this sheet pan dinner, I wanted to go a little healthy so I used spicy turkey sausage and veggies. The potatoes, sausage, and peppers are put on the pan first; asparagus is then added towards the end of cooking time so it is not overcooked. No one likes mushy asparagus.  Some chopped garlic is also mixed in with the veggies to give them lots of extra flavor.

My daughter just started a vegetarian diet while at college. She will be coming home for the summer so I am collecting some vegetarian recipes to try. Sweet potato sheet pan tacos  sounds like a dinner she will love so that will be my next sheet pan dinner.

From start to finish, you can have this sausage dinner on the table in less than 45 minutes. While dinner is baking, you can whip up some sangria or even some Nutella mousse for dessert.  This dinner is so easy to make that you’ll have more time to sit down around the table with your family.
