One Pan Little Potato & Sausage Bake

If there is one veggie I can get my son to eat, it's potatoes. He absolutely adores them (just like his Momma!) So, I found that a great way to get him to try new foods is to add potatoes into the mix. Especially these Little Potatoes. They are bite-sized, simple to prepare (you don't even need to boil them first!) and they go great with anything. For this recipe, I wanted to make it a whole, one pan meal. So I added smoked sausage (another kiddo-favorite) and I decided to go with these colorful varietals called Terrific Trio. Look how pretty they are! Who wouldn't want to eat such a colorful meal?!
And, I let my son help me prepare it all. It's super simple for little and big ones to help. Plus, he gets a bit of a math education as I show him how measurement works in cooking and we talk about fractions (which still makes my brain hurt!) But nevertheless, when kids help prepare their own food, it not only teaches them how to cook but it makes them more likely to try new foods because they help to make the meal!
Ingredients:
1 pkg. smoked sausage, cut into 1-inch slices
1 (3 lb.) pkg. Terrific Trio Little Potatoes, sliced in half
1 green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 red or orange bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium onion, sliced
2 tsp. minced garlic 
1/4 cup chicken stock
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon dried thyme
salt & pepper, to taste
 Directions:
Preheat oven to 400° F. Combine sausage, potatoes, bell peppers, onion, garlic, chicken broth, olive oil, rosemary, thyme and salt & pepper in a large bowl. Stir well to make sure everything is coated with seasonings.
Pour mixture into a large cast iron pan or 9x13 baking dish.
Place in the oven (uncovered.) 
 Bake for 30 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned and vegetables are tender.
Give the mixture a gentle stir after removing from the oven. Then serve! 
Enjoy!
