The sheet pan might just be the number one tool in the weeknight's cook arsenal. Here, it corrals Italian pork sausages alongside bell peppers, tomatoes, and shallots for a quick bake under the broiler. Just 15 minutes renders the vegetables sweet, tender, and soft—perfect for pairing alongside the spicy sausages. Warm bread soaks up any juices, though you could of course use a split roll to make hoagies with the ingredients. (If you go this route, a little provolone cheese or Italian dressing would be welcome.) Pro tip: If your family has differing preferences for heat level, buy the sausages from the meat counter, where you can select both hot and sweet sausages.


  • 1 pound hot or sweet Italian pork sausages

  • 1 pound multicolored baby bell peppers, halved lengthwise

  • 1 pint grape tomatoes

  • 3 shallots, cut into 1⁄2-in.wedges (about ¾ cup)

  • 3 large cloves garlic, smashed

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt

  • .50 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Chopped fresh oregano leaves, for serving

  • 1 8-oz. loaf crusty French bread, warmed


  1. Preheat broiler with rack 6 inches from heat. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Pierce sausages a few times with a knife (do not pierce all the way through). Toss sausages, bell peppers, tomatoes, shallots, garlic, oil, salt, and pepper on baking sheet until evenly coated; spread in an even layer.

  2. Broil, turning sausages and stirring vegetables halfway through, until a thermometer inserted in thickest portion of sausages registers 160°F and vegetables are lightly charred, 12 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with oregano and serve with warm bread.
