BUT. Earlier in the week I made Lazy Casserole and I've been eating it all week. Again, it's a recipe I found on Pinterest from Kayotic Kitchen. It is another recipe that has soon become a favorite around our house. It is easy enough to throw together, has great flavor and is loaded with veggies. The recipe uses sausage. The first time I made it I used Kielbasa, after that I've used Italian sausage, which I now prefer, but both were good. I think you could easily use chicken instead of sausage if you wanted to as well. I wanted a lot of left overs this last time, so I used double the sausage and used an extra amount of veggies. Let me know what you think of this Lazy Casserole.
4 sausages (beef or pork)
1 pound potatoes
1/2 pound carrots
1/2 bell pepper (I use a whole one)
1 large onion
1 fennel bulb
(I add a head of broccoli cut up too)
2 garlic cloves
2 tbsp oil
freshly cracked black pepper
1 1/2 tsp Italian herbs
1/2 cup chicken broth
4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Heat oven to 450. (I do 425)
Peel potatoes and carrots. Cut into chunks. Slice pepper, onion and fennel into slices/wedges. Put all the veggies into a roasting pan or large baking dish.

That gives you plenty time to brown the sausages. No need to cook them all the way through, just lightly brown them. Then cut them in half.

Take it out after 15 minutes, flip over those sausages and ladle some of the juices lurking at the bottom all over the vegetables and sausages. Put it back in the oven for the remaining time, until everything is nice and brown.
