Thank you to Rachel at MashUpMom.com for this delicious, quick and easy recipe. We all enjoyed it a great deal tonight and I have been instructed to keep the recipe and do it again soon. The original recipe is posted at Sheet Pan Sausage, Green Bean, and Potato Dinner.
The section below is lifted directly from her page, but she has several great images (including the one above) and some great text describing this recipe. She also has a lot of other recipes that I’ll be trying soon.
Rachel, the person who built the beautifully crafted website, also has more to offer – a meal plan for the week. They’re called ALDI meal plans. What is an ALDI, I thought. Turns out to be a grocery store chain in 35 states (not Washington or Oregon, however) which originated in Germany and offers high quality food at very reasonable prices. Hope they come here soon (Pssst, ALDI! There’s an abandoned Albertson’s store just off Padden Parkway here!). But I digress. The meal plans look good and tasty and inexpensive. Check out her website and especially look at the meal planning which can be delivered by subscription to your email, with or without her daily(!) newsletter. I’m trying both.
Sheet Pan Sausage, Green Bean, and Potato Dinner
This is the easiest, peasiest (OK, actually no peas…), most affordable-est sheet pan dinner you’d ever like to see. Naturally gluten free (as long as your sausage is).

One 13.5-14 oz fully cooked smoked sausage or Polska kielbasa, sliced into thick coins
1/2 lb fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half
1 lb red or yellow potatoes, diced
1/2 a yellow onion, roughly chopped
6 whole garlic cloves
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp seasoned salt
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp rosemary
Black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan (optional)
Spray rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Add sausage and veggies to a large bowl, then drizzle with olive oil, add seasonings, and toss to coat.
Spread seasoned sausage and vegetables out on the baking sheet and roast at 425 degrees for 40 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with Parmesan (optional, yet recommended).
You can substitute chicken sausage and sweet potatoes to lighten up the recipe a little, if desired. Be sure to cut the potatoes fairly small as shown here, so that they cook through.
