Roasted potatoes, onions, sausage and peppers roast in the oven with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and rosemary. Don't you love a meal that only dirties one pan? This is an easy one-dish meal that makes clean-up a breeze, and the smell in your kitchen will make everyone hungry!
Anytime I find a great alternative to fatty Italian pork sausage, I'm all over it! I have nothing against pork, I just wish they would make leaner pork sausage. I'm pretty picky about my Italian sausage, but I loved al fresco's sweet Italian chicken sausage, I almost forgot it was chicken while I was eating and it's 75% less fat that pork sausage, and it's gluten-free, so that's a plus!
This is a really easy dish to make, the main thing is cutting everything about the same size and don't crowd the pan. The potatoes take the longest to cook, so if you cut them small it all evens out. The onions get a little charred which I love, if you want to avoid that you can add them with the sausage. I've even made this with Turkey Kielbasa and it turns out cheap, simple and great. Try it with red potatoes, new potatoes or russet.

- 1.5 lb (about 3 large) potatoes, russet or new
- 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered, layers separated
- 2 red bell peppers, seeds removed and cut into 1 inch pieces
- 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
- 1 tsp chopped rosemary (fresh or dry)
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- olive oil spray (I use my Misto)
- 1 lb Italian chicken sausage (al fresco's) cut each link into 6-7 slices
Cut the potatoes into small 1" x 1/2 inch pieces. These take the longest to cook so cutting them small ensures everything cooks evenly.
Preheat oven to 375°. Spray one large non-stick baking sheet, or two small ones with olive oil spray to prevent the potatoes from sticking.
In a large bowl, combine potatoes, onions, peppers, olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary and garlic powder. Mix well to be sure everything is coated with oil and seasoned evenly. Pour onto the prepared baking sheet and place in the center of the oven; bake for 15 minutes.
Use a spoon to toss so nothing sticks or burns.
Add the sausage to the baking sheet with the potatoes and vegetables and bake, tossing once or twice for 25-35 minutes, or until your potatoes are cooked through. Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your potatoes and sausage, keep an eye so they don't burn.
