1 large sweet potato or 2 small red potatoes, (around 2 cups) cut into small cubes
1 lb. of Brussels Sprouts, quartered
1 sm./med. zucchini, cut in half and then into bite sized pieces
1 sm. head of broccoli, coarsely chopped

salt/pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and set aside
Prep the veggies, throw them and the sausage onto a lined sheet pan.
In a small bowl combine all the seasoning and salt and pepper , if desire (I use about 1/8 tsp. pepper and 1/2 tsp. salt) with the olive oil. Stir to combine.
Pour the seasoning & oil mixture on top of the veggies and sausage and toss to thoroughly coat.
Roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until veggies are crisp and tender, remove and toss parsley.
Serve non top of brown rice or quinoa (I only do this if I am serving a crowd and need the portions to go further.)
Serves 4-6 when served with rice.
