One Pan Roasted Zucchini Asparagus Sausage Great Recipe For Celebrating Fall Harvest Or Any Time During The Year
An easy one pot meal likes this can be done by anybody in your family. I am not kidding. The most “difficult” work is to cut up the vegetables and sausages. Then, drop everything into a roasting pan and wait for dinner to be ready. Yes, it is that easy.
One Pan Roasted Zucchini Asparagus Sausage was the first recipe for me to combine zucchini and asparagus together in one dish. With the warm weather started so early this year and super high temperature, we may have vegetables out of the garden early. It is never hurt to start planning early, right?
I use spicy sausage in this recipe to give it more flavors. Feel free to switch to any of your favorite cooked sausage.
This is a great one-pot meal with a lot of healthy ingredients in it. Enjoy!
Easy One Pot Meal Recipe and Instructions
6 Small Zucchini (sliced) 3 bunches Asparagus (trimmed and cut into 1/3) 1 medium Red Onion (sliced) 1 lb Cooked Spicy Sausage 1 tsp Salt 1/2 tsp Black Pepper 2-3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1/2 Lime (optional; juiced)
Use both hands to hold a spear of asparagus on either end and slightly bend it. It will snap from the tough part. Use that spear as your measurement unit and line up with the rest of the spears and cut out the tough section and discard. Cut the spears into thirds
Chop and drop vegetables and cooked sausage into the foil lined pan
Add extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper and toss to coat (if you plan to add lime juice later, add lime zest in this step)
Roast in oven for 30 minutes
Toss and turn; continue to roast another 20 minutes until vegetables are crisp tender
Juice 1/2 lime (optional), salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately
