A riff off the ballpark classic, this sheet pan dinner recipe is made with hearty Italian sausage, buttery Little potatoes, and roasted bell peppers. The perfect busy weeknight dinner recipe!
I’m on a major sheet pan dinner kick and for good reason: they’re versatile, easy to prepare and great for using up whatever produce I have on hand!
My husband is a Bostonian and we spent many years living there together while we were dating. As a result, we have very fond memories of visiting Fenway Park. Of course, you can’t visit Fenway Park without trying one of their famous sausage and pepper subs.
This sheet pan dinner is a riff off the ballpark classic, made more nutritiously with nutrient-packed Creamer potatoes, red bell peppers, and sweet onions.
When roasted, the potatoes and peppers caramelize and the sausages become perfectly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
Since The Little Potato Company’s Creamer potatoes are pre-washed, this entire meal is prepped in just a matter of minutes. Once you throw the pan in the oven, dinner practically cooks itself.
To intensify the flavors more, I like to add oregano and fresh rosemary. Additionally, garlic cloves are added in whole which slowly roast in the oven. The roasted garlic turns out creamy and sweet.
Sprinkle with fresh parsley before serving and dinner is done.
Your fork is waiting.

Chicken or turkey sausage from Traders Joe would work as well.

You can definitely chop your veggies and sausage ahead and store in the fridge until you’re ready to cook.

I’ve made this a few times and it’s a family favorite. It’s in the oven now. I use whatever sausage I have on hand. Tonight I’m using bratwurst and spicy Italian sausages. I increase the sausages to 6 or 7 because it’s so good left over (if there are any). I just read that you can substitute carrots. I wish I’d thought of that! It’s a forgiving recipe. Use what you have, and it’ll work just fine.
Thank for the recipe. I did not have all the ingredinets on hand, so went with what I had. Chicken kale Sausage from Publix, Sweet potato, baby red potato, onion and Brussel Sprouts. So so good. Made extra for meal prep this week. Now my meals are ready to go. Thanks…will look to use sheet pan meals more often!!
What you had sounds like it was delicious!
This was delicious and exceeded my expectations! With my pantry running low, I had a pack of bratwursts in the freezer, 2 lonely green peppers in the vegetable drawer, and 3 potatoes hiding under the cabinets. I googled those 3 ingredients and found this. I removed the skin from both the sausage and potatoes and cut them into equal sized chunks. I did not have onions, but added sliced mushrooms. I used some onion powder and dried chopped onions too, along with Italian seasoning and paprika. I was surprised how everything cooked to perfection, together, and in just 30 mins. For an on the fly dinner, my family LOVED this.
Oh I’m so glad your whole family enjoyed it!! What a great idea to add mushrooms!
How delish! I added sliced carrots, reduced the oil to 1 Tbs. and added green pepper. Used 2 sheet pans to eliminate crowding/steaming risk. Thanks for the recipe. My sheet pans will get some extra work!
So glad to hear it Diane!!
Can I leave out the garlic? Several people are allergic to it.
Sausage and potatoes, one of my favorite combinations ever. Reminds me of my mom and dad. :)
Awww I love that Brenda!
I made this last night using chicken sausage from Trader Joe’s. It was perfect!
So glad to hear it Heather!
Made this with Turkey Sausage and was so good. Heated it up in the morning with a couple of eggs!
So glad to hear it! Great idea!!
I make this type of dinner very often, and it is absolutely a lifesaver! You’re right that those little spuds make it soooooo easy, too!
