This kielbasa veggie sheet pan dinner is a rainbow of colors and can use most any vegetables you have on hand. Even better, this recipe is ready in under 30 minutes!
Easy Sheet Pan Dinner Recipe
Easy dinners like my pork tenderloin sheet pan dinner is one of my favorite ways to mix up dinnertime. One pan meals always get rave reviews because there are fewer dishes to wash.
Lining a pan with parchment paper or foil makes it even easier!
This sheet pan dinner recipe is ready in less than 45 minutes because it uses pre-cooked sausage. We usually use pork, turkey or beef kielbasa and cut it into pieces for fast cooking.
In my veggie drawer, I had zucchini, bell peppers, onions, baby carrots and mini potatoes.
This is a great clean out recipe to use those veggies hiding in the refrigerator. You could use all sorts of veggie love in this dinner. Asparagus, snap peas, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower….well, you get the idea.
Tips for Sheet Pan Dinners
Sheet pans come in several sizes.
The most common, the half sheet pan – measures 13” x 18,” while the larger three-quarter sheet pan measures 15” x 21.”
In the case of a lot of sheet pan recipes, bigger the pan the better. Big pans allow extra room for the vegetables to be spread out in a single layer without overcrowding.
For me personally, I have two half size sheet pans I use so they can’t easily be stowed away.
A few other tips…
Roasting vegetables in a hot oven is one of the best ways to enhance their natural flavor and sweetness. If you’ve ever tasted broccoli raw or steamed versus roasted, you’ll see what I mean. The flavor profile is completely different!
For nicely browned potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and other cut veggies, position with cut side down on sheet pan prior to roasting.
