  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 lb broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 red onion, sliced into half moons
  • 2 lbs sweet sausage (about 6 links)
  • 1 head garlic, top trimmed off (or 6 cloves of garlic with the ends trimmed but peels left intact)
  • 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning, dried
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 slices Italian bread (or other rustic bread)
  • 2 Tbsp parmesan, grated (+extra for serving)
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley, minced (divided)
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Scatter the broccoli, cauliflower, and red onion evenly on the tray.

  2. Nestle the sausages into the vegetables. Place the head of garlic in the corner of the pan, cut-side up.

  3. Drizzle 3 Tbsp of olive oil over the pan, being sure the garlic gets a good drizzle. Season with salt, Italian seasoning, and pepper.

  4. Roast for 25 mins, then remove pan from the oven. Stir the vegetables around, flip the sausages, and turn over the head of garlic so it is placed cut-side down.

  5. Cut or tear the bread into 1 inch pieces and scatter evenly with the vegetables. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

  6. Roast for 10 mins more, then remove the head of garlic. Turn the oven off, but leave the sheet pan in the oven.

  7. Squeeze out the roasted garlic from the peel and mash it to a paste with a fork in a bowl. Whisk in the vinegar, parsley, and 1 Tbsp. Season with salt and pepper. 

  8. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and spread the roasted garlic dressing over the pan. Toss lightly and serve with a sprinkle of parmesan if desired.

Recipe Notes
  • Cutting the vegetables and bread in advance makes for super quick prep, making this ideal for weeknights.
  • Line that sheet pan! Parchment or nonstick foil are ideal.
  • Keep an eye on the garlic so the cloves roast and get soft, not hardened and burnt. I flip the head over during cooking to keep them soft. 
  • Cutting off the top of the head of garlic (or the ends of cloves if using) makes it easy to squeeze the roasted garlic out of the peels. 
  • Flip those sausages and toss the vegetables as they roast to ensure equal browning and even cooking.
