Roasted Potatoes with Smoked Sausage and Green Beans
1 pound Burton pork and beef sausage, sliced into large chunks
2 1/2 pounds red skin potatoes, scrubbed and cut into large chunks
10 ounces green beans (fresh or frozen)
1 large onion, peeled and cut into slices
1/2 cup good-quality Italian dressing
Pinch kosher salt
Pinch black pepper
1 tablespoon each fresh rosemary and thyme leaves (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a very large baking dish/baking sheet tray with either non-stick spray or a bit of olive oil.
In a large bowl, add the sausage, potatoes, onions and green beans. Pour in dressing. Season with a little salt and pepper. Sprinkle in the herbs (if using) and give everything a good toss or stir.
Pour into the baking dish and cover tightly with foil.
Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Remove foil and gently stir to rotate the ingredients in the baking dish.
Return baking dish to oven (uncovered). Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees. Bake for an additional 35 – 45 minutes (or until potatoes have browned a bit and everything is nice and roasted). Stir a few times during this final baking time to ensure that everything roasts evenly.
Serve immediately. Great with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top.
