Servings 4


  • 1 ½ lbs potatoes, about 3 large, peeled and cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 ½ tsp salt, divided
  • ½ tsp fennel seeds (optional)
  • 3 bell peppers, seeds removed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and quartered, layers separated
  • 1 red onion, peeled and quartered, layers separated
  • 1 lb Italian chicken sausage (or sausage of your choice), sliced into ½ inch rounds
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Put the peeled and cut potatoes in a pot with 1 tsp salt, ½ tsp fennel seeds and enough water to cover by one inch. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. Strain the potatoes from the water and transfer to a large bowl or back into the pot (to reduce the dishes to wash later!)
  • While the potatoes are boiling, cut the peppers, onions and sausage.
  • Toss the boiled and strained potatoes with 3 tbsp olive oil and ½ tsp salt. Spread in one layer on the prepared sheet pan. Bake for 15 minutes in the oven.
  • Meanwhile toss the sliced peppers, onions and sausage with 1 tbsp olive oil. Set aside.
  • When the potatoes are golden (about 15 minutes) remove the pan from the oven and push the potatoes to one side of the pan and add the sausage mixture.
  • Bake for another 10 minutes until the sausage is cooked through. If you want the potatoes, veggies and sausage to be more golden, you can broil them for 2-3 minutes.
