We have been on a pasta kick recently in our house, and tonight we spiced things up and made this incredible Roasted Sausage & Veggies over Pasta.Our pasta kick may have to do with the fact that we have a limited supply of fresh grocery items at our fingertips. But it also might be that the one thing we KNOW our kids will eat is pasta! It’s truly the little things that carry us through tough times!

ROASTED SAUSAGE FOR THE WIN!Sausage always goes over pretty well in our house. It’s not something we have too terribly often, so it’s a bit of a treat when we do!We typically cook sausage on the stove, but this time we roasted it with some veggies in the oven, and it was a lot easier.
