Sausage and Veggies Sheet Pan Meal

Sheet pan meals are easy, go to meals, especially when you can’t decide what’s for dinner. This meal is packed full of nutrient dense vegetables, low in carbohydrates, and keto friendly. It has just the right amount of seasoning and is sure to be a hit with any crowd.

Using traditional kielbasa makes this recipe high in sodium, so look for a low sodium option at your local grocery store. By choosing a lower sodium option you can increase the health benefits of this recipe.  Keeping your sodium intake low in your other meals for the day if you are planning on making this dish is also a good idea. 

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

If you have a roasting option on your oven now is the time to use it. This feature helps circulate air while the food is cooking and helps it cook more quickly and evenly. This is a newer feature that many ovens don’t have, but if you do have it, I promise you will love it. I had to replace my oven last year and have noticed a huge difference in baking times when I use the roasting option.

  • Chop sausage and vegetables into 1 inch pieces. For the vegetables that take longer to roast like carrots and potatoes, cut them into ½ inch pieces.

The other good thing about this sheet pan meal recipe is that you can use any types of vegetables that you have on hand.  Other squashes, like butternut or acorn, sweet potatoes, and green beans are all good options. Use what you have on hand. This is the perfect easy meal for the home gardener. It provides a hearty meal that helps use those random pieces of produce. I am a part of a produce co-op that buys produce in bulk and then divides it among members. Doing this helps us save money, but there are some weeks where I get one or two random beets and this is the perfect recipe to help me use them.

  • Put everything in a large mixing bowl and drizzle with oil, salt, pepper, seasoning, and garlic. Mix well.
