While clipping coupons I found this tasty ‘Spring Meets Summer’ recipe in a Kroger coupon flyer. As a fan of fresh vegetables, herbs, polska kielbasa, and something easy to fix, this recipe definitely made it to the “let’s try it tonight” stack!
Kroger’s flyer states, “Capture the garden-fresh taste of spring and the meaty, grilled notes of summer with this sausage bake. Cut Kroger Polska Kielbasa into coins and chop up select vegetables. Toss with olive oil, garlic, rosemary parsley, salt and pepper. Spread onto a foil-lined baking sheet; bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through and ensuring sausage reaches a safe internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Refrigerate any leftovers.”
Hmmm…there are no specific measurements so my first offering was a “trial and error” in taste, and thankfully I hit the right notes with my family. Thank goodness I had enough vegetables for two pans full!
- 1, 16 ounce package Polska Kielbasa, sliced
- Small Red Potatoes, halved or quartered
- Sweet Green Pepper, cored and sliced
- Roma Tomatoes, sliced
- 2 small zucchini, sliced
- 2 small yellow squash, sliced
- Portobello Mushrooms, whole and halve slices depending on size
- 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1 teaspoon dried Parsley
- 1 Tablespoon minced Onion
- ¼ heaping teaspoon dried Rosemary
- ½ teaspoon Black Pepper
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- Olive Oil
- Non-stick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place kielbasa, potatoes, green pepper, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms in large mixing bowl. Pour a light coating of olive oil until all vegetables are lightly coated. Line baking pans with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray, or use a non-stick pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. (Note I used a buttered flavored spray to add a touch of flavor). Pour vegetables in pan creating a single layer for even baking. Mix garlic powder, parsley, onion, rosemary, black pepper, salt in small bowl or sandwich baggie until well blended. Gently shake or spread mixture over all vegetables as evenly as possible. Place pans in oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes until vegetables are tender and meat is cooked thoroughly. Serve warm.
Notes: My batch served 6-8 people. People who like onion may want to add fresh onion as a vegetable instead of using minced onion. All spices should be measured to personal taste.
