I love how perfectly well rounded this simple dinner is. It’s got protein, carbs, and veggies all in one dish. Who doesn’t love a dinner that has it all? After a long day, it can be SO tempting to order a pizza or get takeout. (Trust me, no shame – we’ve all been there!)

What You’ll Need:
- Italian sausage links – you can use whatever flavor sausage you like, I was in an Italian-flavored mood!
- Olive oil
- Baby potatoes – you can either slice them into wedges or halve them, depending on how small/large your potatoes are. I like yellow butter potatoes for this but any variety works.
- Green beans
- Red onion
- Cherry tomatoes
- Italian seasoning
- Onion powder
- Salt and pepper
- Fresh parsley
As you can see, all of the ingredients in this one-pan easy dinner recipe are fresh, making me love it even more! If you’re looking for a dinner that covers all the bases and can enjoy leftovers of…this is it!
What kind of sausage should I use?
As long as it’s uncooked sausage, any kind will do! Plenty of grocery stores are starting to carry chicken Italian sausages, as well as vegetarian options too. While I like plain old pork sausage, you can absolutely change this recipe to fit your dietary needs!
Can I make it spicy?
There’s always room for a little heat! If you want to add some spice to this dinner, I recommend sprinkling some red pepper flakes in with the other seasonings. Just be careful, as red pepper flakes can spice things up pretty quickly. A few teaspoons of cayenne pepper will also do the trick, if you really want to break a sweat!
How to make One-Pan Sausage and Vegetables
Let’s go over step-by-step how you’ll make your one-pan sausage and vegetable dinner! For detailed instructions, scroll to the recipe card below.
- Cook the sausage. Add the sausage link and 1 1/2 cup water. Cook for 12-14 minutes or until the sausages are cooked through.
- Cook the potatoes. Sauté the potatoes until cooked through and tender, about 10-15 minutes.
- Bring it all together! Toss in the remaining oil and seasonings, green beans, onions and cherry tomatoes to the hot skillet and saute for 5-7 minutes. Push to one side of the pan and return the potatoes and sausages to warm through. Remove from heat, garnish with fresh parsley and serve immediately.
How long will it stay fresh?
In an airtight container in the fridge, your leftovers will stay delicious for up to 4 days. While you can absolutely reheat your leftovers in the microwave, and they’ll still be good, I recommend using the oven. When reheated in the oven, the food (especially the potatoes) will maintain their texture.
