Some of the best quick dinners are the ones that double as a one pan dinner! Sheet pan dinners are some of my favorite for that reason and this one pan dinner couldn’t be easier. The hardest part is cutting up all the ingredients!
Sausage is a great ingredient to have on had because it adds such amazing flavor to whatever you cook it with. I prefer smoked sausage for this recipe, I think it cooks at a similar rate to the onion and zucchini compared to sausage links.
I also love the sweetness and color the purple onion gives, the only way this meal could get better is if I had a yellow zucchini to add to the green one!
I love cooking seasonally and this meal fits that bill. It’s onion and zucchini harvest time here and while my garden is in pause mode this year, I’m still enjoying the fresh veggies!
Typically stores will have lower prices on in-season produce. Following this trend is a great way to save on veggies, and it usually means they were produced closer to where you live. Win-win!
While this may be enough substance for some families, Andy always prefers a little more than veggies 🙂 . So I often pop some potatoes into the oven to roast while I get this one pan dinner ready. I don’t cook them at the same time because the potatoes take much longer.
I hope you love this sausage one pan dinner! It’s one of our favorites. It’s hard to keep tiny hands from snitching if you have to photograph it before dinner….I’m speaking from experience here. 🙂
#Protip: toss the leftovers in eggs the next morning – DIVINE!!
