I have never roasted vegetables before. I keep watching my cooking shows and they always have segments where they roast a sheet pan full of vegetables. They always look so tasty. I decided to use some of the beautiful peppers that I had and create a dish using roasted veggies. First I cut up 4 peppers and two yellow onions. I cut them in strips all the same size so they would roast evenly. I tossed them in a bowl with olive oil and salt and pepper, garlic salt and Italian seasoning. I put them on a sheet pan and placed them in a pre-heated oven 450 degrees. The oven shelf was about 4 inches from the top of the oven. As they roasted, I precooked some Italian sausages in a covered fry pan. I planned to add these to the roasting veggies later on. I had originally planned to serve these on buns, but decided while roasting to make some mashed potatoes to go with. I cut up a few Yukon Gold potatoes with the skins on. I thought it appropriate to leave the skins on for my rustic meal..I put them in a pan with salted water. They were cooking on the back burner while the veggies were taking my attention. I turned them several times. When they were starting to brown, I added the sausages to the mix and then I kept a good eye on them, so they wouldn't burn. I mixed them up so the sausages would be covered with the peppers and onions and have some of the olive oil on them. I mashed the potatoes and added some sour cream. By now the veggies were just about done. I cooked some string beans and set the table. I wish that I had taken a picture of the finished platter. It was so colorful, but we were hungry and the camera was forgotten. This was delicious and now I will do it with squashes, parsnips, carrots....oh, I can think of a number of things. Have you roasted vegetables? What are some of the ways you use them? With root vegetables coming now...how wonderful to learn a new way to use them.
