This Sausage Skillet dish isn’t for breakfast. Oven Roasted Sausage and Vegetables, tossed over pasta for a hearty meal that warms your soul.
It’s been so dark and gloomy that I have been in a frozen pizza rut for days. There’s nothing wrong with frozen pizza. I have to admit that magical rising crust really does hit the spot. But when I take 5 minutes to pull myself out of it and preheat the oven to the same darn temp, dinner can be exponentially better. And use up a pile of fresh veggies and make me feel like I’m being oh-so-much better to myself. You know, until I dump a pile of pasta over it all.
Now if only I didn’t have to do the dishes…
