Recipe: Sausage & Veggie Sheet Pan Dinner

When you look up the word “Easy” you’ll see a picture of me. WAIT! I didn’t think that through. What I’m trying to say is I’m all about easy and simple meals. No one has time or patience to spend hours after work making dinner. This is when you pull out this recipe for my Sausage & Veggie Sheet Pan Dinner. You’ll have dinner on the table in less than 40 minutes!

All you need for this savoury flavour packed meal are 3 ingredients, one sheet pan and a helper to pour a glass of wine, dinner is served. If you use the time to tidy up while your meal is roasting up in the oven you can probably even have your pj’s on before 7pm and that are what dreams are made of.

Buon Appetito and if you give this recipe a try let me know how it goes. I love hearing for you all. xo’s Mary
