Almost all my recipes are carried on through the family from the first generation of our family who arrived on these shores in 1905. Most are simple to make and filling for the tummy especially with 9 children to feed.

How to Make Baked Italian Sausage and Potatoes


  1. I prefer to parboil the potatoes after scrubbing well. Then cut into chunks...not too small

    While potatoes are boiling, cut sausage into pieces. My preference is about one inch or so.
  2. Add coating of olive oil and minced garlic to large baking pan, add potatoes and rosemary and toss in pan to lightly cover potatoes.

    Add sausage chunks and again toss to make sure the meat is also lightly covered with the rosemary.
  3. Bake in 425 degree oven, in about a half hour turn the potatoes and sausage for even browning.

    At this time add the peppers and onions to the mix and toss in with meat and potatoes.

    Potatoes should be crisp and golden but not overdone. Sausage obviously should be well-cooked but not overdone. Adding the onions and peppers later keeps them from overcooking.
  4. Serve with salad and fresh bread and you have a filling and delicious meal.

    PS, on a personal note...I don't find it as good the next day.

    This is just a simple meal that you can adjust with your own preference in sausage as well as veggies but this is our family version.
