Have you ever been so accustomed to making a specific thing that it just becomes second nature? And maybe you even think it’s nothing special, just a routine habit that you’ve done for years. That was me, so I thought, when I casually shared on my Instagram stories that I was making sausage and peppers one night.

Long story very short, I have never seen so many dm’s in my inbox, ha! People were asking me how I cooked it, where they could find my recipe…so on and so forth. I’ve been cooking sausage and peppers for so long and it never really occurred to me to make it a “blog worthy” recipe. It’s literally so easy and I didn’t think it would be so popular. However, what comes easily to some may not for others, right? So yeah, let’s begin!

There are so many sausage and peppers recipes floating around the web but this is my take on this Italian favorite. I love the ease + simplicity of it all. Additionally, I love the minimal prep work and how it all comes together in ONE PAN! Plus very few ingredients and no fuss makes it a great weeknight staple. Trust me, I make this recipe at least 2-3x a month in my house. It’s a recipe that everyone is happy to have in rotation.

How do you make Italian Sausage and Peppers in 4 easy steps?

Sausage, Peppers, and Onions in Oven Nutrition + Substitutes:

Italian sausage and peppers in oven is a healthy and versatile meal, and it’s one of the reasons I love it so much. There are multiple ways to serve it:

  • Serve over pasta. You can use white, whole wheat, or gluten-free pasta options depending on your needs and preferences.
  • Serve on a bun. As I mentioned, I like serving sheet pan sausage and peppers on a garlic toasted bun with marinara on the side or drizzled over the top.
  • Serve with a salad. Bake sausage, peppers, and onions in oven and then serve with a simple green salad or my 5-minute chickpea chopped salad.

Sheet Pan Sausage, Peppers and Potatoes


  • 4 links Italian sausage uncooked
  • 24 Dynamic Duo or any other varietal by The Little Potato Company halved
  • 2 red bell peppers seeded and sliced
  • 1 large yellow onion diced
  • 12 cloves garlic peeled, whole
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • minced parsley optional garnish



Recipe Tips & Notes

  • Extra Spicy Sausage and Peppers. If you&rsquore looking for an even spicier version, add in some hotter peppers to your preference. I like to include serrano peppers sometimes for myself. Add in a spicy habanero pepper, or toss a ghost pepper into the mix for a seriously hot version. I know you want to, you crazy chilihead.
  • Mild Sausage and Peppers. Traditional sausage and peppers is not meant to be spicy. If you&rsquore looking for a milder version, use sweet Italian sausages and use either bell peppers or other Italian sweet peppers. You&rsquoll still get great flavor with this recipe.
  • The Sauce. The sauce ingredients break down to create a wonderfully flavorful tomato sauce, which perfectly compliments the other ingredients. You can save time by using your favorite store bought marinara sauce. Just simmer the sausages, peppers and onions in the sauce until cooked through.
  • How Long Do Sausage and Peppers Last? This dish will last a week if kept covered in the refrigerator.
  • Freeze Your Sausage and Peppers Leftovers. Yes, you can freeze any of your sausage and peppers leftovers. I like to chop up the sausages, then add everything to a freezer-safe container. These can freeze for 6 months easily.
