Summer Vegetables with Sausage and Potatoes

I love a meal that only dirties one pot because although I may love to cook, I really don’t love to clean! You can see all my one-pot recipes here, in fact I even have a one pot cookbook (affil link) dedicated to one pot cooking!

Summer Vegetables with Sausage and Potatoes Skillet

This dish is so simple to make but full of fresh flavor! I love using multi-color peppers so it’s also colorful since we eat with our eyes.

You can use Italian chicken sausage or turkey sausage depending on what is available to you in your area. I’ve tasted several brands and really came to love Al Fresco’s sweet chicken sausage or Premio’s chicken sausage. My local health food store and Italian deli also carry their own homemade sausage which is wonderful.


  • If rosemary isn’t your thing, use fresh thyme instead.
  • I used multi-color peppers because I love the color, but you can stick with one color to make it easier.
  • Make it vegetarian with Vegetarian sausage.

This easy one-pot skillet dinner is made with chicken sausage, bell peppers, zucchini, baby red potatoes and fresh herbs.


  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lb baby red potatoes, cut in half or quartered
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • 14 oz Italian chicken sausage, sliced 1-inch thick
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, smashed with the side of the knife
  • 1/2 orange bell pepper, diced 1-inch squares
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, diced 1-inch squares
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced 1-inch squares
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, or other fresh herb such as thyme

  • When the skillet gets hot and starts to sizzle, reduce heat to low and cook with a tight lid on for about 20-25 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally to prevent the potatoes from burning.
  • Remove from heat and let them sit 5 minutes without removing the lid, then set the potatoes aside on a dish.
  • Add the sausage to the skillet and saute on medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally until browned but not quite cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  • Season chopped vegetables with salt and pepper. Add onions, peppers, garlic and rosemary to the skillet and mix.
  • Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until onions and peppers become slightly browned.
  • Add zucchini and cook an additional 5 minutes, mixing as it cooks until cooked through.

  1. Hi 😃 can I use Brats instead of chicken sausage?

  2. We loved this. We went one step further and put eggs over easy on it. AMAZING!

  3. I made this last night. My picky-as-a-four-year-old husband loved it. It will go in the thin file of meals we both really enjoy. I used a larger potato (cheaper than the small potatoes) and dried thyme as my spice. Winner-winner for this recipe!! Thank you. 

  4. Another winner! Thank you! I only had Russet potatoes – cut them into 3/4-inch pieces. Toward the end of their cooking time, I increased the heat to brown them. I did not have fresh herbs, but I love thyme, so I added 1 tsp dried thyme leaves at the same time as I sauteed the vegetables. Recipe serves 4 (unless you have a husband who loves meat and potatoes – in which case it serves 3).

  5. Any suggestions as to a good substitute for the zucchini? 

  6. Wow! I hate to chop. This recipe was worth the chopping! Thank you Gina for a new favorite!

  7. This was sooooo good! I read through the comments and used someone else’s suggestion to make a sauce. I added a little Better Than Bouillon (garlic flavor – maybe 1 Tbsp) and a squirt of dijon mustard, stirred it to coat everything, then added some water (maybe 1/2 cup?). I let it simmer for a bit, but since it wasn’t as thick as I wanted, I added a tiny bit of corn starch slurry and cooked for a few more minutes to thicken. I absolutely loved it that night and probably even more so the next day. I used to roast vegetables and chicken sausage in the oven, but I like this much better because it’s not all dried out.

  8. This was so good! I didn’t have any issues with the skillet needing a bit of moisture. I had washed my potatoes right before throwing them into the pot; that might have made a difference!! It tastes so refreshing and yummy. Thank you for this recipe!

  9. Great recipe! 

  10. Have made this twice and have found both times, it needs a broth to deglaze the pan.

  11. I love this recipe!  I made it a few weeks ago and again tonight.  And I’ll have it for breakfast with scrabbled eggs on top!!!  Great recipe!  Thank you so much!

  12. The first time I made this I did it as is. I loved it. My husband, who wants me took cook healthier for him, said it needed sauce and cheese (did I mention he wanted me to cook healthier???) We compromised this time. Before adding the potatoes back, I added chicken broth mixed with some dijon mustard and let it reduce a bit. It was awesome. I am chopping up the leftovers to make a soup for lunch!!!!
    A very versatile recipe that you can cater to your own likings.

  13. An easy one pot summer dinner. I used Hillshire Farms smoked Turkey sausage and only had one green pepper to use (no red, orange, and yellow) but it was a good weeknight dinner. Even with just one pepper instead of 3 this made a ton of food. The serving size is big and satisfying. Will be making this again for sure. Thank you for the recipe and for helping me stay on track with WW and enjoy cooking and eating real food!

  14. This was wonderful – we both loved it!   I did use fully cooked sausage, which I added in about 5 minutes into cooking the onions and peppers.  Thank you so much!

  15. My husband made this with veggies from the Farmers market  and it was delicious!  A keeper!

  16. I just can’t do sausage of any kind. Would this work with just chicken instead?

  17. How does the servings work on this website when it says 13/4 cups? This does not make sense to me. Can someone please explain?

  18. I made this years ago, but forgot about it. I am so glad you reposted it, Gina! Made it the other night and it was a huge hit. Only bad part was my kiddos are getting older, so no leftovers! 😉

  19. Gina,
    My husband can’t do peppers, could I use broccoli instead?
    Love your recipes!

  20. Hmm. This recipe didn’t work out for me. I initially cooked the potatoes for the full 25 minutes, but by the end they were still undercooked. And the dish ended up soupy instead of what I’d want for a sausage, pepper, and potato hash dish. If I make this again I’ll have to majorly adjust based on this experience.

  21. I made this dish last night exactly the way the recipe was written and boy was it yummy!! The flavors all went so well together and I felt like it was so healthy as well!! 5 stars from me!!

  22. Can i use sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes?

  23. Do you use the pre cooked sausage or fresh sausage? 

  24. I’m making IT now but I’ll let you know how it goes

  25. What is the serving size? It’s not specified in the recipe.. thanks

  26. I’ve made this dish a couple times for my family and we all love it! Simple to make but full of fresh flavor. All of the beautiful colors make it very beautiful also. 

  27. I made this for dinner two nights ago and was skeptical but this is so delicious! It is all I’ve eaten until the leftovers were gone. Really good for breakfast topped with a poached egg!

  28. This was delicious! Can you freeze leftovers?

  29. This is my son’s favorite dinner! He always asks me if I can make it for him. 

  30. Looks yummy! I’m going to try this!

  31. What would you think about grilling everything foil pack style.

    • I think it would work great! You can check out this one too

  32. Any thoughts on adding butternut squash?

  33. Loved this recipee, but changed a few things.. I actually browned the potatoes. Also, I added a bit of no sodium chicken broth at the very end and simmered for an additional 5 minutes, as my family likes a little gravy.

  34. Super easy and very good. 

  35. I thought this was a soup or stew until I saw that there was no broth mentioned. I’d like to add broth. what do you suggest.
    haven’t eaten it yet but it sounds delicious.

  36. This is so delicious and easy. I make it religiously in the summer to rave reviews from the whole family!

  37. Fully cooked chicken sausages vs fresh chicken sausages. Which one should the recipe use?

  38. Do we think this would work okay as a meal prep recipe where you could divide into freezer-safe containers? Thanks Gina for making healthy cooking accessible for both me and my boyfriend!

  39. I was looking for a recipe that would incorporate bell peppers and baby potatoes and I found this one. I had to substitute Italian sausage and broccoli because I did not have any chicken sausage or zucchini. Also, I only salted the potatoes before cooking them and did not add any additional salt later on while cooking. The seasonings were perfect. This is simply delicious. I will definitely make this recipe again.

  40. yo lo ise y nos encanto y de echo en cualquier comida que ocupe papas me gusta hacer frita la cascara y mi comida lo acompañe con unos frijolitos negros en verdad que deliciosa facil y economica

  41. gracias por que la verdad no sabia que hacer y es rica, facil ,y los ingredientes facil de conseguir ami esposo y mi hijo de 2 años le encanto

  42. Gina, how would you do this in an Instapot?

  43. This is one of the best camping recipes we have ever made. All 7 of us ate extras so there were no leftovers. It was even good when made at home in my oven

  44. Very good. The family liked it. The potatoes were perfect. I kept the cover on the pan the entire time the potatoes cooked, without lifting to stir. They got nice and soft. I used apple chicken sausage. I had to take out a dish of vegetables and potatoes when they were finished and added shrimp for my vegetarian son.

  45. A favourite summer dish around here. It’s so perfectly, we hardly change a thing. We do roast the potatoes in the oven while cooking the sausage and veggies and throw them in later just to save time, but I know your way saves dishes 😉

  46. Gina this is also Whole30 friendly… You could add the tag to the top of the recipe. 🙂

  47. Wow. My three very picky eaters liked it and all 3 want me to make it again. I did use ring sausage. I precooked the potatoes separate like a couple of  reviewers suggested. I used thyme because I didn’t have rosemary. I didn’t use the zucchini because of my picky eaters.

  48. I’m eating this right now, didn’t think it would turn out so good! I’m a son in our family house and its my turn to cook on Sundays. I usually stick to basic british meals but throught i’d have a look on here for some ideas. This is by far one of the best things i’ve cooked, loads of compliments from family and I think they’ll want it next Sunday because I do!

    Thanks a lot for this contribution!

  49. Love this!

  51. Sooo yummy ! This is one of my favorite recipes

  52. Love it!!! Does anyone else have trouble with too much moisture in the pan and the peppers and onions not browning? Still tasted awesome 🙂 

  53. seriously love you! Made this recipe again tonight for my family and everything is gone per usual. It’s so funny my Husband got on the scale this morning excited he lost a few pounds he has no idea I’ve been feeding him healthier meals the past few weeks! Please keep the recipes coming

  55. So mine of course didn’t look as pretty as yours but it was delicious!  I used turkey sausage cause that’s what was in the house.  This will go in the must make again pile for sure.

  56. We had this for dinner the other night. It was delicious! I used oregano (dried) for the spice as that’s what I usually use for sausage, peppers and potatoes. Thank you for a nice, lightened up version, perfect for the warmer months! 

  57. I made this last night for dinner and it was a hit! Very tasty and even my picky teenager loved it. Thank you!

  58. This is on my top 10 list of skinnytaste recipes- just love it!!

  59. This was absolutely delicious! I cannot believe how tasty and healthy your recipes are!

  61. This is a wonderful one pan meal that is full of flavor. I would love to see a winter version with Brussels sprouts or something/

  62. I made this tonight. Very nice!! I made a few changes tho i had pork sausages in the freezer so used them instead of chicken and i added a cup of thickened vege stock to give it a bit of moisture. Served wirh crusty bread, beautiful ????????

  63. This recipe is one I want to try – it’s the kind of dish I know we will like. Do you have a print option somewhere on your page. I work in windows 10 and don’t see one. I don’t have a laptop and would just like to print it for my use.

  64. I absolutely love this, and all of your recipies. I am embarking on this weight loss journey to be healthier for myself and my family. With your amazing ideas, I’m down 8 lbs in two weeks. Thank you! 

  65. I made this tonight and added jalapeno peppers to the mix. It was delicious!

  66. This is my all time favorite quick, healthy meal!! Such amazing flavor!!! I use sweet potatoes vs regular. Fantastic!!!

  67. Is it possible in any way to make this in a crock pot?

  71. I made this tonight and it was AH-MAZING! I used sweet potatoes vs baby reds and they were done in no time (not even 10 mins!). Then I added in some apple chunks! Delish! My husband loved it (low carb! with great flavor) and my 5 y/o daughter LOVED it. She loves “hot dogs” aka sausage and a pepper and sweet potato feen! This will be a new go-to meal at our house. Thank you!!

  72. This is soooo good! I’ve made it twice so far and it’s always a hit with the family. I cooked the potatoes separate while I cut up the vegetables and put them in with the sausage in a skillet. I used 2 packages of mild chicken sausage and one packet hot sausage, added green pepper into the veggies and minced the garlic instead of smashing it with the knife. I added some Creole seasoning to give it some kick and dried rosemary instead of fresh because it’s what I had on hand. I added chicken broth to make sure bits wouldn’t burn on the bottom while the whole thing cooked together. Paired it with some rice and voila an amazing, yummy dinner!

  75. Made this tonight and it was delicious! The husband had two servings and said I could make this anytime! The 8-yr old daughter said it would be better without the zucchini. Haha. Thank you!!

  76. I absolutely love this recipe – so colorful! I made this with the Al Fresco chicken apple sausages and red onion, and it came out quite good.

  77. Very good and very filling. Thanks for another good one pot meal.  Keep them coming coz we don’t love to clean up after either.

  78. Great recipe.  Used hot italian turkey sausage and substituted mushrooms for some of the peppers.  So tasty!!!

  79. I made this last night and it is delicious! Thanks Gina! 🙂

  80. Hi. What are the Smart Ponits for this recipe? It looks great!

  81. I just made this…Amazing as usual. Thanks for another great recipe.

  82. Love this recipe. What are the smart points for this?

  83. I've made this twice now and absolutely love it!! Makes great leftovers (hot or cold). I make the potatoes in a separate pan to cut the time in half. I also use hot Italian chicken sausage links from Sprouts; cook them in links for 10 minutes, remove from heat and slice before adding peppers, etc.

  84. Made this for Father's Dinner today. OMG So good! I'm not a sausage fan and this I liked 🙂 Added some hot pepper flakes to give it a little extra kick. Thanks Gina!

  85. Ran into this recipe lately. It is not summer, but I used what I had on hand and this turned out very well. Since St. Paddy's Day was a couple of days ago, had cooked potatoes, carrots and cabbage left. Used that plus red and green peppers, onions and mushrooms. Added some garlic and thyme and used turkey smoked sausage. Love that this is good with whatever, and helped me clear out my fridge. Thanks for the recipe and all the comments!!

  86. Making this for dinner tonight with your Crockpot Applesauce!! Perfect for a cool fall day!! Love all of your recipes!

  87. I made this for dinner tonight with some fresh zucchini my grandma gave me. It was delicious! I used turkey sausage & even my "pork sausage is the only thing the counts" girlfriend loved it! Super happy with this, will be putting it into our regular Spring/Summer dish rotation 🙂

  88. This recipe says it serves 4. I was in the middle of preparing this awesome recipe when I learned I had 6 for dinner instead of the 3 I planned on. I added pasta (rotini) to extend the recipe and it was deeeeeeeelicious!! This was the first time I had ever made this so I don't know how it would have tasted without the pasta.

  89. I'm going through a crazy, fresh vegetable (and fruit) phase and I saw this today and made it for dinner. Outstanding! I made it with andouille sausage and it was fabulous!

  90. This sounds great! But I do have one question. Do you mince the rosemary or just throw the leaves in whole? Rosemary leaves are somewhat thick and rigid. I'm just afraid the texture would make me feel like I'm eating, well, leaves.

  91. I made this for dinner last night and it was seriously delicious, my husband loved it too! We'll be having the leftovers tonight!

  92. Just a thought – I cut my sausages with kitchen shears … worked well!

  93. Well – I wasn't sure how my boys would like this … but they did. Cut the baby potatoes up finer than prob. you do. I, too did not have them done in even half an hour – so I popped them in the microwave for a few minutes to finish them.
    I think I would really like to try this again with a Kielbasa. I used dried thyme (no fresh) and instead of zucchini (again didn't have any) I used mushrooms.
    I cooked mine in a huge cast iron dutch oven on the stove. I prob. also cooked mine longer …. but I like the crispy bits of onions. I think I'd cut the peppers a little smaller. Smelled great …. definitely will save this one! Very good!

  94. This may be a silly question, but do you remove the casing first before cooking the sausage?

  95. This was SERIOUSLY AMAZING! I used spicy turkey sausage. A little difficult to cut because it's so soft. Next time, I might put it in the freezer for a bit to make it a little easier to cut. I also added a container of crimini mushooms sliced in half. I kept my heat on medium with my potatoes (I used baby Yukon Golds cut in about 3/4 inch pieces as that's what came in my farm box). About 10 minutes in when they were getting a bit brown and carmelized, I put in about an 1/8 cup of red wine to deglaze while the potatoes were still in there, then popped the lid on for about 3-4 minutes until the wine was gone. This bit of steam got the potatoes done well within the 20 minutes but kept them brown and delicious – and with great flavor! I used an orange and yellow bell pepper and threw in some cayenne for a little heat. The hubby and I both couldn't stop saying YUM as we ate it!

    • Is that what you should do; deglaze the pan, when the pan starts getting too gunky and the browning going too fast? I've always wanted to know what to do when that happens.

  96. Delicious! I'm making this for our Outer Banks vacation this year. I have to cook for 20 but I'll have help chopping the veggies and how simple to just get 4-5 skillets going at one time! I'm thinking some fresh bread from the oven would be a great addition. I'm thinking our crowd will love this.

  97. Really, really good with any kind of vegetables. Very simple to make! I loved it!!

  98. I made this recipe with spicy sausage. It was absolutely amazing. I did what others suggested and made breakfast with the left overs.. Ah! it was just as good! I scrambled some eggs into it with some cheese! yummmmyyyy! Thanks for the recipe!

  99. This recipe is incredible. I love how it kind of turned into a stew. So easy and tastes homemade in the best way. It made the house smell amazing and I can't wait to make it again. Easily scaled up or down depending on the size of the crowd. Thanks for the recipe! I just featured it on my blog,

  100. This was amazing! My BF says he has dreams about it – he would eat it every day if I would let him. So easy and delicious! Very forgiving recipe – you can add or sub in anything you have in abundance and whatever fresh herbs you have on hand. We were almost fighting over the leftovers.

  101. Does this end up with any kind of liquid/sauce to it, or is it a dry dish? My husband (who thinks gravy goes with everything) would like it to have some kind of wetness to it. Not that it will stop me from making it if it doesn't, I am just curious…

  102. The sodium content is so high….how can it be reduced by at least one half.

  103. I made this tonight for dinner though we used pork sausage cause I couldn't find chicken. But it turned out so amazing! We served it over quinoa and it was so good and we even have enough for lunch tomorrow. This will be a keeper in my house! Thank you for sharing!

  104. I wish I would have read the comments before starting this! My potatoes weren't even close to be done after 40 minutes so I ended up having to roast them in the oven. Then I made the mistake of putting the lid on when the veggies went in, which made them sweat, which means the onion and peppers never got brown. Ugh. But it tastes DELICIOUS so who cares if it ain't pretty? Thank you, Gina!

  105. i love this dish! i like to use smoked turkey kielbasa. it adds for faster cooking as well. And its REALLY good with an egg on top!

  106. Yours came out WAY prettier than mine! Still, it was delicious.

  107. This was amazing for dinner last night and I'm just about to attempt the microwave reheating of leftovers. The only thing we did differently was cooked the potatoes separately in their own pan at the same time as the sausage & veggies. Time > Dirty Pans in my house! It cut down the time to about 30 minutes total: 10 minutes to chop everything, 20 to cook it all.

  108. This looks wonderful. May I ask if you serve anything else with it?

  109. This looks wonderful. May I ask if you serve anything else with it?

  110. Sooooo good. Seriously, I have not tried a recipe of yours yet that I did not like. I don't know what I would do without your site. Thank you for all your efforts. 🙂 Almost all of the recipes I use come from skinnytaste!

  111. Thank you for all of your wonderful recipes! This is one of my family's favorites. My 2 year old even gobbles it up, veggies and all.

  112. This was really delicious and a good way to use up my leftover pepper and onion bits! I used Tony Cachere's creole seasoning for more of a cajun twist since I am not a fan of Rosemary… all I have to say is Yummo!

  113. Anyone tried this with meatless sausage?

  114. Made this last night for my husband and I and it was delish!! He loved it, he did not even notice the zucchini and when he was done he said that was "really really good" "It was full of veggies and was so flavorful"

  115. Had this last night.. Soo good! My 10 year old went back 3 times-minus onions!
    Love all of you recipes-have one most nights and have lost about 10 lbs so far! Keep up the good work!

  116. This is a sausage dish my family has made for generations, potatoes, onions and sausage being the constant–other veges as are in season. Good stuff. For a twist, add quarters of fresh tomatoes and serve with crumbled feta on top. Sliced apple or pear also adds a nice dimension.

  117. Can I make this with sweet potatoes?

  118. I made this for dinner tonight, a friend had given me a few heirloom tomatoes today so I let it cool a little and added some of those chopped up with basil, the result was tasty! thanks for the inspiration!

  119. made this for dinner tonight very yummy and very colorful!

  120. I am probably getting boring, praising all your recipes all the time, but you deserve it! So, after having your cauliflower soup and altered mini muffin omelets for lunch, I come home and make this for dinner. It was amazing! Even better than I thought it would be, so thanks and congratulations once again =)

  121. I pinned this on pinterest and finally made it tonight, it was delicious! I used an enameled cast iron dutch oven to make it, and used an italian dried herb mix instead of rosemary. Needed to cook longer until the potatoes were more 'done' or softer. My husband loved it and I will definitely make it again.

  122. This was a really cool way to cook potatoes… never tried that before!

  123. My kids love this dish SO much. I love the beautiful colors…I also love that you can pretty much throw in any veggies on hand and it is awesome. Baby portabello mushrooms were to die for in this. Thanks Gina!!

  124. I made this for a breakfast carry in — it was nearly all gone! I really loved having a gluten-free, dairy free choice at the carry-in!! I cooked it in my cast iron, then transfered it to my crock-pot to leave the house!

  125. Amazingly delicious! Made this for dinner tonight almost exactly as written, except my potatoes weren't done after 20min, so I nuked them for a bit while the sausage and veggies cooked. I deglazed the pan with a splash of white wine because I was afraid of the stuck spices/onions burning. My husband votes strongly for shrimp next time and I think it'll be awesome, and it was already super good and flavorful. I'll be making this often!

  126. I made this tonight and it was amazing! My hubby is anti chicken or turkey sausage and I am on WW so pork was out. Instead I used chunks of sirloin and adjusted the cooking time. I forgot the onions (not sure how that happened) and the herbs, but it was still great! Mushrooms would be delish in this!

  127. this was a phenomenal dish…picky family and they ate it up. i didn't make any variations as i am not a great cook, this website is wonderful and simple. thanks for the recipes and the easy to follow steps.

  128. Made this for dinner tonight, soooo good! Thanks Gina!

  129. Just made it for my son, who can't eat any of the top 6 (soy, milk, wheat, egg whites, peanuts and shellfish.) He loved it and so did I! This would be great over a bed of quinoa too!!

  130. Tasty recipe that we both liked, but why does the print version include part of the blog post? I printed without checking it over (my bad) and it came out to two pages because of the extraneous stuff at the top. I sound like such a whiner, but it's kind of annoying you know?

  131. I have made this recipe twice in the past week and absolutely love it!!! Thank you!

  132. Made this last night and it was great! I boiled my potatoes till they were just about done and then drained them and added the oil and potatoes back to the pot to brown them and proceeded on with the rest of the recipe. I used the same pot (my dutch oven) so it was still a one-pot meal! I also added more of the other veggies. Had enough left for hubby and daughter to take to work and some for me this morning for breakfast (scrambled an egg with it.)

  133. Made this tonight, it was soooooo good. Even the picky 9 year old didn't have much to complain about.

  134. Thanks so much for posting this…I can't wait to try it. I'm so glad I found your site!!!

  135. *pats belly* This was sooo good! Just made it, just ate it and I'm now in a bliss state of fullness. After a long week at work this didn't require too much effort on a Friday night and all of the fresh veggies add tons of flavor (hint: I like things spicy so I cut up a fresh large jalepeno to kick it up a notch) and it doesn't make me feel like all of my calorie watching and running I did this week as gone to waste! Great meal 2 thumbs up + 1 happy tummy

  136. Do you think this would hold as a make ahead and re-heat later dish? I want to make this to bring to a cousin who just had a baby but I want it to be easy for them to just re-heat. Any hints?

  137. wow that does sound good! I'd do scrambled eggwhites with this! Definitely trying this recipe within the week!

  138. This was soo good. My husband said it reminded him of sausage onnion and peppers on the grill which is his favorite in the summer time! Now I can make it year round for him! He actually went for seconds!

  139. Made this for dinner tonight and everyone loved it!! Such great flavor

  140. We just inhales this for dinner. So delicious! I used hot Italian sausage as well, and dried rosemary. Thank you for a great new recipe!

  141. This is really tasty! I used hot italian turkey sausage in place of the chicken sausage, a mix of dried rosemary, dried thyme, and herbes de provence in place of the fresh rosemary, and a summer squash in place of the zucchini. It takes a while to put together, but it is really good.

  142. I made this for dinner last night and my husband and I both loved it! Thanks for the recipe!

  143. Made this for supper tonight. It got a thumbs up from everyone – even the picky 6 year old! It's a keeper!

  144. This was AWESOME!! Hubby asked that it get put in the weekly rotation. ONLY diference was that 1 # of potatoes = 5 small/medium red potatoes – I cut each into 6-8 pieces. 20 mins was perfect for the cooking time. Also added a bit of cajun seasoning to the veg and added 1/2 # of haricot verts (thin green beans). AWESOME!! THANK YOU!!!!

  145. Made this tonight with a slight change in the type of sausage… GREAT dish!

  146. This is really a filling meal! I made it because I thought I could get my husband to eat veggies, but I found it delicious as well!

  147. This was excellent! My husband is picky but he went back for thirds!! I loved it!

  148. Wow! This was better than I anticipated. I had a variety of summer squashes that were new to me, but then didn't have any more room for the zucchini! I'll save those for your zucchini bread. I had fresh thyme and that added a really nice touch to the dish. Yummmy!!!!

  149. This is so delicious. The skillet I had on hand was too small, so I ended up roasting the potatoes while I cooked everything else. I also substituted an Italian seasoning blend for the rosemary because I'd run out. Very pleased! Economical, healthy, easy, and delicious. My favorite meal.

  150. Yummmmmm this came out soo good. I made this tonight an kept the potatoes separate so that my husband could mix pasta with his, and I added the potatoes to my dish without pasta. The vegetables came out perfect and the rosemary was so delicious. Thanks for another great recipe!!!!

  151. This was delicious. I expected complaints from my two picky children, but they ate the food up without any whining. I put ours in a tortilla with a little sour cream and tabasco and it was perfection!

  152. Gina, how can I make this in the oven? I want to make a tray of it for a party.

    • This recipe can help…

  153. Wow, this is so gorgeous and I'm drooling over the combination of flavors! I'm featuring this post in today's Food Fetish Friday (with a link-back and attribution). I hope you have no objections and I love the inspiration I get from your food…

  154. I made this on Sunday to have for dinner for the week. Somehow some way I didn't end up having a bit of it until today, and it's sooo good! When I tasted it, I wanted a bit more salt, so I added a few shakes of hot sauce (also cause I'm a bit country, lol). Something about the hot sauce and the rosemary, wow! This is something I'm definitely going to have again before summer vegetable season is out!

  155. Made this last night – it was awesome.

    For me, cutting the potatoes very small helped with the cooking – they browned easily.

    Also, I used zucchini and squash and only red peppers. It was delightful with spicy parmesan sausage! I will definitely make this again.

  156. I just made this and it tastes so good. My only problem was that nothing browned like the pic for me.

  157. Gina, I am trying this for the second time tonight, my mother in law and I are trying to modify it as a crock pot meal, too hot to turn on the oven! I'll let you know how it turns out!

  158. Yet another home run recipe! Considering it's a hot dish, it still looks like it should taste fresh and summery. And love one-pot meals (and cleanup) 🙂

  159. I like the way you add sausage on it. Love the colors of vegetables! So yummy!

  160. This is very tasty, but nothing got browned or charred on medium-low heat. The sausage looks a little sad. Next time, I'll sauté stuff on medium-high. I also made it with basil. 🙂

  161. This looks absolutely lovely! I'd make it with vegetarian sausage, I'm sure it would be just as good.

  162. I have tried a bunch of your recipes and they are AWESOME! I'm going to try this tonight, but neither my husband nor I are Rosemary or Thyme fans. I DO have fresh Basil growing out back so I was thinking of adding that instead. What do you think? Or has anyone tried this with basil?

  163. I've made this twice now and it will now be a staple in the dinner rotations! The tastiest way to eat my veggies. I'm going to try it with bison taco meat for a different flavor profile.

  164. I made this last night and it was fantastic! My husband loved it too. I used dried Thyme in place of the fresh Rosemary.

  165. Thank you for another delicious recipe. The only thing i did different was I cut up the potatoes and microwaved them before adding to the oil just to speed up the process. My whole family really enjoyed it. thanks again – Annie

  166. Hi Gina, I featured this dish on my blog. Too interesting not to. ;D

  167. So delicious and easy!!! Made it tonight using Lightlife Veggie Italian Sausage and it turned out perfect, with enough tasty leftovers for me to bring to work for lunch the rest of the week. This recipe is a definite keeper–it's a beautiful and tasty way to eat your veggies! I look forward to making it again for friends. Thank you so much!

  168. Made this last night!! Yummy it's a keeper!!

  169. Got excited to see this recipe as i have been doing this for such a long time now. it started as my lazy morning breakfast for my kids when they were little, Only easier version without the potatoes. Just mushroom slices and big rings of onions and 2 tbsp of oyster sauce, if they are lucky i add chicken breast strips. It works all the time.Yours is much healthier with veggies.I'll try it too!happy to know it wasn't a lazy meal after all ;D

  170. Hi Gina!! I made this for dinner tonight and it was incredible! One of my new favorites. Ty so much for the recipe. Absolutely loved the rosemary!

  171. Made this tonight. Delicious. We like al fresco chicken sausage, although tonight I used some we picked up from he local farmers market. Also, added tomatoes, they're so good right now, at the end. Off the charts good.

  172. I made this over the weekend and used leftovers to add eggs for breakfast. This is a dish I am adding to our family dinners. I used Trader Joe's Smoked Apple Chardonnay Chicken Sausage and it was completely delicious! No guilt because it is so low-cal!

  173. Making this as we speak. At 25 min. on low my potatoes have not even begun to cook. Put them back on med for a while, and we'll see what happens.

    • THANK YOU for your input that is helpful to making the recipe!! I get so sick of the "wow, this looks great!" and "can't wait to try it!" comments when what I really need are people to say what they may or may not have needed to tweak. Now I know as I make this right now, I'll need to go up on the heat on my potatoes. THANK YOU!

  174. Made this today with Italian turkey sausage and I absolutely loved it.

  175. Love this! Looking for things I can add hot peppers to that my boyfriend is growing in the garden (he has 25 pepper plants. I don't eat spicy foods. Needless to say they are coming out of ears!) I bet this would be sooooo good with peppers!

  176. GINA
    YOU ROCK! This was so darn good it will make you wanna slap your momma, for which I add I don't advise doing this because all momma's have eyes in the back of their heads. But I also got to hand it to you because you do the almost impossable, you make healthy foods so darn yummy! My hubby watches alot of those cheif contests and I'm thinkin, who can't make foods taste good if you over use cream, sugar, fat or salt. That's almost a no brainer/easy. I'd love to see those cheifs TRY making it yummy and good for you and see how well they do. You should toss your hat into that compatition because you would take the prize. This recipe is another knock your socks off example. Gonna keep it in the favorites file. Thank you…. AGAIN!

  177. Can you tell me how many points (or at least the calories) your 14oz of sausage has? That will make it much easier to find substitutes without affecting the points per serving. Thanks!

  178. We had it with eggs for brunch this morning. Another fantastic meal! Thanks so much!

  179. Thanks for a great recipe. I love the premio sausage and use theirs all the time. Even the italian premios sausage. This recipe is great and use all of your recipes…thank you

  180. I am absolutely loving this dish — it's so colorful and bright and totally my thing! I love using chicken sausage in just about everything and this meal could be served for lunch, dinner, or even brunch. Noms are on.

  181. Made this today. Unfortunately, 25 minutes were nowhere near enough for my potatoes to cook through, so had to tweak the recipe a little bit, but it was delicious in the end!

  182. I am eating this as I type. It is fantastically flavored and the summer veggies are excellent with the sausage! Another delicious low fat recipe. Thanks Gina!

  183. I bet my boyfriend would love this!

  184. Gina, This looks delicious! I would love a recommendation for a pan to use. None of my non-stick pans have lids.

  185. Very informative post!

  186. We had this for dinner last night. My husband was very impressed and said it's a keeper!! Was delish!! I chopped the onions larger pieces and everything was perfect!! Didn't have the rosemary but I have the Wildtree Herbs Rancher's Steak Rub that I use with zucchini all the time. Was perfect! When we finished, we decided we were having the leftovers for brunch tomorrow with added scrambled eggs and tortillas!! Thank you!!

    I've been following you for a while on Pinterest and this is my first post. I just wanted to tell you that we have loved all the recipes I've found here!! Great job!!

    PS – My husband just walked by and asked what I was doing and told him that I was posting regarding your recipe. He said again how great it was and is looking forward to brunch!!

  187. This was awesome. My family loved it and like Balisha, I also had it with eggs this morning. YUM YUM!!!

  188. could this be done in a slow cooker??

  189. Think this would work well in a dutch oven?

  190. I love the colors in this dish, I add some chicken broth and white wine and serve over bow ties or linguine.

  191. This looked so delicious and I had all the ingredients on hand, so I made it for dinner yesterday. Delicious! Will use the leftovers with eggs this morning.Thanks for the recipe…Balisha

  192. Thank you for this idea. Definitely nice to just dirty one pan and come to think of it, I bet both my kids (3 and 1) would eat at least some of the stuff in it. 🙂 Will try this weekend for sure.

  193. This looks very good, and is my type of easy dinner meal. I will definitely give it a try.

  194. This is so pretty! A perfect meal! I'm always looking for something new with sausage and this looks perfect!

  195. This looks delicious!!! I have some turkey kielbasa in my freezer and was wondering what to do with it. I think I'll try this!

  196. We have a weekly CSA produce box from a local farmer and hadn't used up a bunch of our stuff from last week. This used quite a bit of it and was fantastic! Hubby is a bit picky with veggies and he loved it. We ran out of onion so we omitted it and added a mix of rosemary and thyme from our garden to add a little bit more flavor since the onion went missing.

  197. Oh my gosh, this is so up my alley! I love it!

  198. This looks really good. I'm going to pin it and hopefully make it soon!

  199. I made this tonight…super tasty and easy! …although mine didn't look as pretty as yours! 🙂

  200. Wow this was delicious and simple to make! Definitely a keeper!!

  201. I saw this recipe this morning and my future mother-in-law and I decided that we NEEDED to do this tonight. I literally just ate it. It was sooo good. A couple of things I tried/wanted to add:

    * Use FRESH rosemary, not the dried stuff. We used dry, thinking it was a shortcut. It didn't wreck it, but it would have been better had we not tried the dried stuff.

    * I might suggest slicing the onions instead of chopping them. They got lost in all of the thicker-cut stuff. The recipe did not specify which onions to use, so we went with red which was perfect.

    * The timing was just right for everything. Whoever timed this did a great job. Also, the serving sizes were accurate too. We fed 3 people, and we had about 2 cups left over…enough for another person to eat.

    *We just used regular salt and pepper, not Kosher Salt or Cracked Pepper. I don't know if it would have made it better, but it tasted good with the regular stuff.

    Everyone try this RIGHT NOW. I highly recommend it!

  202. Very good. My husband asked me to make another batch for his lunches next week!

    Then I saw your roasted recipe that almost the same. Hate to fire up the oven, but that's a keeper for this winter.

  203. Looks like some tasty eats! (And perfect timing since I need to use up a bunch of veggies and love taters.) 🙂

  204. This is a must try, looks so delicious! Thanks for sharing!


  205. I just bought a bunch of chicken sausage so I'm excited to try this. the chicken I have has 120 cals and 6 grams of fat per link. Is this okay?

  206. This is delicious! I just had it for dinner, so good!

  207. GREAT POST:)
    Your blog is so wonderful and Im following…I hope you follow me also:)

    If you want some cute swedish decor inspiration…check out my new post:)

    Have a great week.

    LOVE Maria at

  208. Perfect timing! I just bought chicken sausage at Trader Joe's and wanted to make it tonight. I will make this tonight and just let my hubby eat all the potatoes because I am watching my carbs. Love all your recipes!

  209. One dish deliciousness! Love this.

  210. Mmm! I wonder if this would be good with kielbasa in place of sausage (yes, I'm from Pittsburgh): )…

    • Kielbasa would be good! We are on a tight budget and the – (chicken sausage (most meats) are expensive but kielbasa would make this budget friendly. Thank you for the idea!

  211. I'm interested in trying this, but could someone give me some ideas what brands of chicken Italian sausage I could try?
    I have tried turkey sausage, and am not really crazy about that.
    It tasted salty and artificial some how.
    I might try the chicken sausage.
    Looks like a good recipe!

    • My favorite Italian chicken sausage comes from Whole Foods, if you have one where you live. Sunfower Market/Sprouts and Trader Joe's are also prety good.

    • I get my chicken sausage from Top Tomato, and it is pretty good. If you have one by you, you could try there.

    • We found ours at Trader Joe's – make sure it isn't the pre-cooked, although those are good too.

  212. Yum Yum Yum!! Looks SO Healthy and Filling 😉

  213. Looks great! 🙂

  214. Yum! This looks so good! I just bought some chicken sausage this week to make a summer veggie hash 🙂

  215. This looks amazing! I wish I'd seen it before I went grocery shopping this morning…oh well…next week 🙂

  216. Sounds really delicious. No 100% sure if I can find chicken sausage here in Scotland but I know we have a turkey equivalent.
    Just what is needed to cheer up the gloomy weather here in Glasgow !

  217. This sounds so good! I will definitely be eating this soon! Yum!

  218. YUM…dinner tonight!!!

  219. I have tons of squash and zucchini from my CSA shares- do you think the squash would taste good mixed in here as well?

  220. I know what I'm doing with some of the veggies from my fresh box this weekend! 🙂

  221. This is so funny because yesterday I was menu planning for next week and I really wanted to make your Roasted Potatoes, Chicken Sausage and Peppers dinner. But to me that is a winter meal. This is perfect! I am making it next week for sure! YUM! I love all your recipes. Thanks for all your hard work!–Jessica 🙂

  222. Totally making this tonight!

  223. Like most of your recipes; another keeper!


  224. Yum!! Why didn't I think of this for breakfast!

  225. What a hearty meal! This would be perfect for breakfast with a poached egg on top!
