Sausage and Vegetable One-Pan Dinner

By: Olivia Trapp, MS, RDN, LD (Nutrition Provider)


As a mother, I’m all too familiar with the stress and chaos of dinner times. It can feel like every night is a blur of chaos. It can be hard enough to ensure our children eat anything let alone a nutritious homemade meal. This recipe is easy to make ahead for those busy activity nights, and something you can customize to your family’s preferences. Swap in bell peppers or squash, change the seasonings or add condiments to increase your children’s reception of the meal. A healthy meal is founded on protein, carbohydrate and vegetables – it doesn’t have to be complicated to do the trick!
