Easy One Pan Sausage and Veggie Dinner

My favorite kind of dinner to make for my family is a one-pan dinner. Not only are these kind of meals easy to cook, but because they only use one pan, the clean-up is fast!

This easy one-pan sausage and veggie dinner is super simple to make, and because it is so tasty, even your pickiest eaters will love it.

With big chunks of savory kielbasa, as well as tender potato, carrot and asparagus, your family will not only get a big serving of veggies, but they will come away from the table satisfied with this warm comfort food.

The genius of one pan meals

When I first discovered one-pan meals, I was instantly hooked.

Not only does everything–meat, veggies, and starch–cooking all together in one pot make for fast clean-up of dishes, but it meant that I didn’t have to time all my side dishes to finish as the same time as my main protein.

With one-pan meals, you only have one pot to worry about…which is awesome when you have little ones at your feet crying because they are hungry or just want mommy to hold them.

Since then, I’ve collected a bunch of skillet and sheet pan meals…and they’ve become some of our family favorites.

This sausage and veggie dinner cooks on one big cookie sheet in your oven, and while you do have to cook everything in stages, it’s still easy, because you can get the first part cooking while you finish cutting up the rest of the ingredients.

Sausage and Veggie Sheet Pan Meal ingredients

The ingredients for this sheet pan meal could hardly be easier. Some of the veggies are already prepped for you, or need little chopping.

To make this dinner, you’ll need:

  • 1 pound red baby potatoes
  • 8 ounces petite baby carrots (which is half of a 16 oz. bag)
  • 1 teaspoon of EACH dried thyme, dried basil, dried oregano, and paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 8 ounces asparagus (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 large yellow onion
  • 1 package skinless smoked sausage (I used 13 oz. of Kielbasa sausage)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic, and
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan (the kind in the green can is fine)

How to make a Sausage and Veggie Sheet Pan Dinner

First, you’ll want to preheat your oven to about 400 degrees.

Then cover a sheet pan…or you can also use a cast-iron skillet…with some foil or parchment paper. This will help make clean-up even easier after dinner is done πŸ™‚

cut potatoes and baby carrots on sheet pan

Slice the baby red potatoes in half and put them onto the sheet pan with the baby carrots.

Then, in a small bowl, mix together all of the seasonings: the dried basil, thyme, oregano, paprika, onion powder, and salt + pepper (Salt and Pepper is to your taste… I used about ΒΌ teaspoon of each). Mix together.

Drizzle 2 tablespoons olive oil and half of the seasoning mix on top of the potatoes and carrots. Gently toss to combine and place in the oven for 20 minutes.

cut pieces of onion, asparagus and smoked sausage

While the potatoes and carrots get a head start on cooking, you can cut up the rest of the veggies and sausage.

Prepare the asparagus by trimming the ends off and then cutting the remainder into 2-inch pieces. Thinly slice the yellow onion and cut the sausage into coin shapes.

Remove the potatoes and carrots from the oven and push them to one side of the pan using a spatula.

On the other side add the chopped asparagus, sliced onion, sausage, and minced garlic. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over these veggies and sprinkle the remaining seasoning mix. Toss to combine and then toss those ingredients with the potatoes and carrots.

Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until veggies are roasted to your preference. Top the dish with Parmesan and serve immediately.
