The beauty of this dish is that you can use what vegetables work for your family. Why roast a pan of veggies that no one will eat? Here I have onion, whole cloves of garlic, halved tomatoes, yellow squash, mushrooms and broccoli. (If you happen to be vegetarian, skip the sausage and add extra veggies!!) I put the Italian Sausage on top, drizzled the pan with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a little sea salt and fresh cracked pepper.
Place your pan in the oven set at...
Well, here's where I have to admit one tiny mistake on my part. I didn't pay attention to how long it cooked. I checked on it after 20 minutes and then I turned the sausage over to get the underside browned. I just like them better that way. The veggies and sausage were done when they looked done. How's that for a direction?
Here it is in all it's deliciousness. Just look at those tomatoes. (go ahead, click on that photo...I'll wait....take a good look, wipe the drool, and now continue reading) They were so full of flavor. If you haven't tried roasted garlic yet....you need to not be afraid. It has such a mild flavor after roasting. After I pulled the pan out of the oven I took a little white wine that we happened to have on hand and poured some over the veggies while they were sizzling hot. Maybe about a half cup or so. You can do that...or skip it entirely. It was an impulse step on my part. ;)
