Italian Sausage, Potato & Mushroom Roast
Adapted from The Illustrated Quick Cook: Easy Entertaining, After-Work Recipes, Cheap Eats
Hands on time: 5 minutes
Roasting time: 30 minutes
1-2 tbsp olive oil
8 Italian sausages (I love sweet fennel ones made locally) – leave links whole but separate from one another
2 red onions, peeled and cut into wedges
1lb/500g small new potatoes (or fingerlings, or larger thin skinned potatoes , quartered)
8oz/225 g cremini mushrooms, (quarter large ones, leave smaller ones whole or halved)
Salt & freshly ground pepper
Red chili pepper flakes (optional – I like a little heat to balance the sweetness of the sausages)
1 heaping tsp fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
1. Preheat to 400°F/200°C. Drizzle a little olive oil in the bottom of a roasting pan large enough to hold everything in one layer.
2. Toss all the ingredients in the pan and roast until done, stirring occasionally. (about 30 minutes)
Serve with a salad and you won’t even break a sweat.
