Baked Italian Sausage (5 Servings)


  • Author: Bobby

Ingredients

Scale

For the baked Italian sausages

  • 1 19-oz package of sweet Italian sausage (this typically contains five sausages, you may decide to use more as desired)

For the Roasted Vegetables

  • 1 lb of cherry tomatoes (optional ingredient)
  • 1 sweet bell pepper (red, orange, or yellow-colored; optional ingredient)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper, for added taste

Instructions

Cooking the veggies (if using them in the recipe)

  • Rinse the cherry tomatoes and cut them in half. The bell pepper should also be rinsed and cut into strips, then cut into 1-inch bite-sized chunks. Arrange the cut vegetables into a single layer on a baking sheet that has been covered with parchment paper.
  • Drizzle the olive oil over the vegetables, then season them with Italian seasoning. Toss the veggies properly to evenly coat them.

Cooking the Italian sausages

  • Adjust the oven’s temperature to 400°F and leave it to heat up; in the meantime, prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper (you could also use aluminum foil).
  • Arrange the sausages in a single layer on the baking sheet (you may choose to include or exclude the already prepared cherry tomatoes and peppers); ensure that there is no contact between the sausages.
  • Bake the sausages for 20 to 25 minutes in the center rack of the oven, or just until the internal temperature of the sausages climbs to 160 degrees F.
  • Take the sausages out of the oven once they are ready and serve them right away.
