Roasted Vegetables with Sausage

When I find a super YUMMY and EASY recipe, I have to share!!  This is a great meal for a quick weeknight dinner OR you could prep it for the week for lunches.  I served it with brown rice and it was definitely a hit with the whole family!

Ingredients:

1 medium zucchini

1 medium red onion

1 bell pepper (I actually used half of a red, orange, and yellow pepper)

1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms

1 lb of precooked turkey sausage, sliced into bite size pieces

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line one large baking pan with parchment paper.  Cut up all the vegetables and sausage into bit size pieces.  Place in large bowl.  Add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.  Toss until coated.  Spread out into one even layer on the baking pan.  Place in the oven for 20 minutes, stirring once halfway.  Serve with brown rice or on its own.  Enjoy!
