Are you looking for a super simple, easy weeknight meal? We’ve got you covered with this one pan Italian sausage with onions and peppers. It is quick to throw together with only three ingredients, and you can add an optional fourth ingredient if you like.
It is really as simple as the recipe title. All you need is some Italian sausage, bell peppers and an onion. You can choose your favorite colored bell peppers. We happened to have green and red on hand when we made this to take photos. Orange and yellow are also really tasty.
For the Italian sausage. A clean Italian sausage can be a tougher item to find though, and we’ve done our best to find a clean and readily available one. We use Isernio’s spicy Italian sausage, which we purchase regularly at Trader Joe’s. You can use their store locator to find a location that sells it near you.
To White Rice Or Not?
Ok, first let’s just get it out of the way. You are right. White rice is probably not technically Paleo, but it is a safer starch in terms of avoiding anti-nutrients and toxins. This post from Paleo Leap is full of great info on the pros and cons of eating rice and how it can fit into a Paleo lifestyle. For me, I am not eating potatoes because I have an intolerance to them, and I also have an autoimmune disease, so they just aren’t a good option these days. White rice is a safer starch that is easy to digest. You can make the call the for yourself, but Justin and I do eat white rice sometimes. If you are anti-rice, you could pair this one pan Italian sausage with onions and peppers with cauliflower rice.

Is the pan greased or any oil on the vegetables?
We didn’t for this recipe, but you certainly could drizzle a little avocado oil or whatever cooking oil you prefer on veggies before you toss it all in the oven. I think our sausage had enough fat/oil in it that it provided a little grease as it cooked. Hope you enjoy our recipe! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
