sausage and pepper panzanella sheet pan dinner

What’s great about sheet pan dinners is you literally throw a bunch of items on a sheet pan, pop it in the oven and you have a delicious dinner for your family with minimal clean up. You all know how much I love the minimal clean up!

This sheet pan recipe with sausage is a play on a panzanella salad. Panzanella is an Italian bread salad that is typically made with croutons and fresh vegetables. We are putting a little spin on it tonight with this panzanella sheet pan dinner.

Unlike using fresh vegetable we are roasting them with croutons and sausage and then tossing it all together with a delicious lemon dressing.

The best thing about this recipe is you can use any vegetables you enjoy. I use bell peppers and onions, but you can use whatever vegetables that your family like. Just make sure they are cut in similar sizes to ensure everything cooks evenly.

So here is how to make this super easy sheet pan dinner to feed your family fast.
