I love easy, and this is an easy one-dish casserole to make. A few root vegetables, sliced smoked sausage, olive oil and spices come together to make this delicious dinner. PS - my grandson loved this and went back for seconds!
1 lb. smoked sausage or kielbasa
4 med-large Yukon gold, red or Kennebec potatoes, cut in 1- to 2-inch chunks
3 to 4 large carrots, cut in 1-inch pieces
1 large onion, cut into wedges
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1-2 tsp. Cajun or Creole seasoning (I used Cajun)
1 large clove garlic, crushed and finely minced (or 1-2 tsp. jarred minced garlic)
1/2 tsp thyme leaves
2-3 tbls. olive oil
Optional - add 1/2 head of cabbage, chopped
Heat oven to 425. Grease a 3-quart baking dish or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Combine the sausage pieces, potatoes, carrots, and onions in a large food storage bag or bowl; toss with the pepper, salt, Creole or Cajun seasoning, garlic, thyme, and olive oil. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
Roast for 45 to 60 minutes, until vegetables are fork-tender, stirring every 15 to 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
