Roasted Potatoes {Tasty Tuesday}

This is a new family favorite. I have a made it a few times now and love it every time!

This is also a recipe that has enough leftovers for my husband to take to work the next day and for me to enjoy while the kids eat their peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

What is also great about this recipe is that you can manipulate it any way you want. You can add different veggies, not use some, pick your own spices, your favorite sausage, all so that you and your family can enjoy it the way you like it.

The ingredients:

1- package of your favorite sausage. (We used Johnsonville with cheese)
2.5 lbs- red potatoes
2- bell peppers (any color)
1- small-medium size onion
3/4 jar- banana peppers
1 cup- your favorite cheese (we used mozzarella) 
2-3 Tbls- Olive Oil
Favorite seasonings (we used Lawry's, black pepper, paprika and parsley)

Step one: coarse chop your potatoes, peppers, onion and sausage. Toss into covered roasting pan.

Step two: Drizzle with olive oil and mix until ingredients are evenly coated. I love how colorful it is!

Step three: Add your seasonings. I don't measure, I just give the top a good coating of my favorites and sprinkle with black pepper. Then give it a good stir.

Step four: Cover and put in oven at 400 degrees. Bake approximately 35 minutes or until a fork easily goes through the potatoes.

Step five: Remove from oven, stir everything again. Top with cheese, put cover back on for five minutes.

Step six: Serve and enjoy!

Make it vegetarian: Replace sausage with another favorite veggie or fruit (eggplant, zucchini).

Make it vegan: Same as vegetarian, but don't add cheese.
