If you are looking for a quick and easy weeknight meal, you have come to the right place. This Sheet Pan Sausage and Peppers recipe only takes 25 minutes to make and is always a dinner winner.

Sheet pan meals are the BEST! I love that dinner is made on ONE pan, easy to make and easy to clean up! This recipe couldn’t be any simpler.

Toss everything on a large sheet pan and roast in the oven. The sausage gets a little crispy, but is still super juicy. The peppers and onions caramelize, making them super sweet and irresistible.

You can serve the meal as is, eat right off the sheet pan or transfer to a plate and enjoy! But this is also a great meal prep recipe because you can use the sausage and peppers to make pasta or hoagies with melted provolone cheese. You can also serve with rice, potatoes, eggs, and more!

    Thank you!

    Yes, this sheet pan recipe is delicious and I’m normally not a fan of sheet pan dinners. Very flavorful! I used apple-chicken sausage for mine but otherwise followed recipe exactly. Served this over rice pilaf with ciabatta bread. Great meal for a weekday.
