This Sheet Pan Sweet Italian Sausage and Vegetables is a simple way to get dinner on the table in 45 minutes or less. And all it takes is chopping a few veggies to get this delicious dinner to come together.
Are you sick of one pan dinners yet? Good, me neither. Really how could you get sick of quick nutritious meals that are adult and kid friendly. If you have children you know the struggles of planning meals for the entire family to enjoy. It’s definitely not a science. It’s basically luck. On any given day one child will LOVE a meal that I make and then I make it again the following week and they want NOTHING to do with it.
And of course don’t try to fool them by adding a sauce or spices to the vegetables that are different than what they are used to. In all seriousness, I try to remind myself that kids are just like adults in that they aren’t always going to feel like eating a certain food even if they have in the past. However, I do emphasize to them that I took the time to make the food and I’d appreciate if they would try to food (which usually results with them eating more than half of what I served them).
All food groups have a purpose since each provide unique nutrients, vitamins and minerals. When it comes to vegetables I like to focus on eating a variety of them, however, bright colored (orange and yellow) definitely have some strong nutritional content. Check out this post by A Healthier Michigan to get the inside scoop on the benefits of bright orange and yellow fruits and vegetables.
