I love dishes that are simple and delicious and this roasted broccolini and sausage dinner is just that!

The roasted broccolini sits on top of the roasted sausage, fresh mozzarella is layered on top, and is finished with some cherry peppers for a little kick.

This is a great one for busy weeknights and can be served on its own, or alongside some crispy roasted potatoes or rice pilaf.

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 425f and place 2 1/2 pounds of Italian sausage on a sheet pan and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • While the sausage is cooking, remove the lower 1 inch of stem from 1 bunch of broccolini (about 1 pound). Drain 1 1-lb jar of cherry peppers and remove the stems from each pepper. Chop the peppers into half or quarters and set aside. Remove the sausage from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes, then slice lengthwise in half.
The sausage is topped with fresh broccolini.
  • Evenly distribute the broccolini on top of each sausage and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, then place back in the oven for 10 minutes.
