Balsamic, Sausage & Roasted Veggies

I’m real happy to be on my normal cooking and blogging schedule. I’ll start making my videos next week.

I’m sharing with you today one of my favorite things that I haven’t made in a long time. They, as a whole, are called One pan or pot recipes. They are basically like two dishes in one. To prepare, all you really have to do is pick out a few veggies and your meat, then place everything onto your pan or pot and start cooking. In a few short minutes dinner will be ready.

I have a few links to my favorite one pan suppers towards the end of this article.

This one pan balsamic sausage & veggies recipe is my latest favorite. The original recipe called for turkey sausage and I had planned on using it but I didn’t have any! So I decided to substitute it with pork sausage instead. However, you can use turkey or chicken to make it more healthier.

This recipe is real simple to prepare, delicious and can be made into a healthy meal for you and your family.

ONE PAN BALSAMIC SAUSAGE &

VEGGIES

INGREDIENTS:

4 Potatoes, chunked (and peeled if preferred)
