Nutritious, Quick & Easy Pan Dinner – Must try!

Greetings! As always thank you for stopping by my little corner of the world. Much appreciated – and I mean that.

As always, I’m always in the hunt to make meals that are healthy, easy, and cost effective. This one meets ALL of that criteria and more.

This is a one pan meal.


Talk about easy clean up!! Winning!

Sausage/Veggie Pan Meal: here we go!

It’s one that you can add to. Subtract from. And personalize it to how you or your family would prefer. I’m a definite fan and like to make variations of this once a week, depending on what’s on sale, or with my current location, what happens to be available. This one is just too healthy, cost effective and easy not to add into your menu calendar weekly. With simple variations, its something new every time.

By the way, I asked for Broccoli this week and lo and behold, our one little food supply store said yes! We have broccoli! Little did I know at the time it was a bag of broccoli that is going to last me for an eternity. Seriously. A bag bigger than a 10# bag of potatoes. Of broccoli. Only broccoli.

Anyone out there with broccoli ideas – feel free to share!!! May Day! May Day!

Here’s what you will need:

Sausage (any kind – polish sausage for this one, 8oz mushrooms, 1cup cherry tomatoes, 3 large potatoes, 2-3 cups broccoli, garlic clove, lots of pepper, 2Tbsp or so of olive oil, Parmesan cheese.

Prep is easy.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Cut and/or chop garlic.

Dice potatoes in reasonably small chunks

Slice sausage in coins

The rest is ready to go!

Sidenote: no limits on vegetables. Use what you like or what’s available to you. I have used all kinds of peppers, sweet potatoes, zucchini, onions etc.

Once everything that needs to be, is cut up,  you basically throw it all into a bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil, be generous with the pepper and Parmesan. Shake and toss, shake and toss to get it all covered.

Spread our as evenly as possible on a baking sheet or a 13×9″ baking dish. (As you can see I improvised with my baking dish!) You basically just dump it all out. How easy is that?

(Side note: this one is so simple that your young children can help with the prepping – such a moment of pride come dinner time where they know they have contributed)

Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.

Remove from oven, check the dense vegetables such as potatoes with a fork to make sure they are tender, if not, another ten minutes in the oven will fix that.

Serve it up on plates and you are done!

This one truly is a winner. I don’t think I have ever had any variation of this that wasn’t just plain delicious. And the high nutrition and low calorie intake is a definite plus.

Please feel free to message me after you have made this recipe and share with me how it turned out or any variations you may have implemented so that I can shake mine up a bit too!

  1. This sounds delicious. I love having roasted broccoli or using it in a crustless quiche. I have also shredded it up and made a broccoli rice and broccoli tots! I This is great just to snack on solo as well and with the limited amounts of fresh – freshish you are able to obtain these days, I would experiment and add it as a filler to most anything!
