This easy sausage and peppers dinner is a kid-approved, one dish meal that will feed the whole family on a busy weeknight.
Hello! I’m stopping by on a busy Wednesday with an easy dinner option! I got such a positive response on my Ultimate List of Kid-Approved Crockpot Meals post that I made a mental note to continue to share other easy recipes that I make and the family enjoys. I used to feel like a recipe had to be unique and fancy (ahem, vegan koftas with lemon-tahini sauce) for me to share it here, but while those *are* delicious, I know a lot of you are like me and looking for simple, healthy dinners for weeknights that your kids will eat.
This easy sausage and pepper dinner takes 10 minute to prep, and 30-40 minute to bake, and only has one dish to clean up. That, my friends, is a win in my book. Plus, it’s easy to customize to taste preferences. I used spicy Italian sausage for David and me, and used sweet Italian sausage for the kids. I haven’t tried it, but I also imagine it would work beautifully with a vegan sausage option, like Field Roast.
This easy sausage and peppers dinner is a one dish meal that will feed the whole family (happily!) on a busy weeknight.
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp salt
4 bell peppers of various colors, sliced
1 large sweet onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
8 Italian sausages (either whole, or sliced in half length-wise for kids)
8 hoagie buns for serving
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, garlic and herbs. Add the onions and peppers and toss to coat.
Pour the pepper and onion mixture a 9×13 Pyrex. Place the sausages on top. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until sausages are cooked through and vegetables are soft.
Serve on a bun and enjoy!
