I LOVE a recipe where you can just dump everything together and just cook it. Usually, though, this means you've got to eat some kind of casserole. Now, I DO love casseroles, but they aren't always the most aesthetically pleasing.
So, when I came across this recipe, I was intrigued. I've made a few changes, like adding cabbage and garlic, along with some thyme, but this recipe is still super simple. You get your "meat and potatoes" all in one awesome, oven-roasted dish. Since, as I've mentioned before, I ALWAYS have banana peppers on hand, I didn't even need to make a trip to the grocery store. Thankfully, I had like 4 or 5 smoked sausages in the deep freezer, too!
Oven-Roasted Smoked Sausage with Cabbage, Potatoes & Peppers
adapted from Lila's Apron
1 package smoked sausage or polska kielbasa, cut into 1/4" slices
1 onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 bell peppers, seeded and sliced into strips
1 small head of cabbage, roughly chopped
4-5 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2" chunks
3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried rosemary
Salt & pepper
1 12oz jar banana pepper rings, drained
Spread in an even layer onto a large baking sheet (one with sides), coated with nonstick spray or foil. I used a big aluminum baking pan that I got YEARS ago from a local restaurant supply house. Add the thyme and rosemary, then season with salt and pepper.
