You know I love a simple and flavorful sheet pan dinner. One of my favorite ways to make no muss potatoes is to incorporate into a sheet pan meal. This recipe for Italian Sausage & Potatoes is a super simple weeknight meal that is both budget and time friendly.

I can not stress it enough the importance of using parchment paper for your sheet pan meals. I choose it over aluminum foil because you do not have to add extra oil or butter to make sure it doesn’t stick, and you never end up with bits of foil stuck to your food with parchment. But ultimately it is about the ease of clean up. Once you have served up the meal, all you have to do is fold the paper over on itself and toss it in the garbage bin. Done and done.

If you wanted an extra kick, you could use a hot Italian sausage link. If you wanted to play a little dinner time roulette, you could go half hot and half sweet, and just see what you get with each bite. The important point is to use the full sized sausage links and that they are not pre-cooked. You want the fats from the sausage to drip down into the potato and pepper mixture while it’s cooking.

I would definitely suggest having a classic Caesar Salad and some garlic bread on the side with this dish. It will just be a nicely rounded out meal. This sheet pan would also make a great meal prep option, as it keeps as leftovers to reheat so well.
