Our recipe for Sheet Pan Italian Sausage with Polenta and Zucchini is a new way to serve up the classic combination of sausage and peppers for dinner. It is easier than ever because everything is cooked on one sheet pan.



  1. Heat the oven to 425°F (220°C), (make sure to position a rack in the middle of the oven- baking on the middle rack ensures more even heating). While the oven is heating, spray a rimmed baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray. Arrange the polenta slices on the baking sheet and season as desired. Top the polenta with the zucchini. Arrange the sausage, onion and peppers around the polenta. Spray the sausage, polenta and vegetables with cooking spray. Season as desired.
  2. Bake for 25 minutes or until the sausage is cooked through. Pour off any liquid. Sprinkle the cheese over the zucchini. Pour the sauce over the sausage, polenta and vegetables. 
  3. Bake for 10 minutes or until hot. Serve sprinkled with sliced fresh basil, if desired. 

Recipe Tips

  • For an extra-saucy version, use the whole jar of sauce. 
  • You can also use fully-cooked Italian-style chicken sausage if that's what you have on hand.
