VEGGIES Zucchini, peppers, and onions—always the perfect combination! Add in your favorites from mushrooms to green beans.

Tips for Perfect Sausage & Potatoes
- For best results with sausage and various vegetables, make sure all the pieces are cut uniformly so they roast at the same rate.
- Save time by using a thin-skinned potato (red or white); they don’t need to be peeled first.
- Give the potatoes a jumpstart in cooking (as they take a bit longer than the rest of the ingredients). While they’re cooking, chop the rest of the ingredients to make the prep quick.
- Broil for a few minutes if desired!
