WW Recipe of the Day: Skinny Italian Sausage Sub Sheet Pan Supper for Two
Driving across country I became more than familiar with Subway sandwiches and salads. They are at so many gas stations and rest areas. Back home I rarely go, however they are a healthy lifesaver when traveling.
Here's my skinny sheet pan rendition, substituting turkey sausage for the salami. It's an easy, healthy way to produce a satisfying dinner at home with all the flavors of your favorite sausage sub.
With the basics in the oven, you can play with toppings and light side dishes that will be tastier than any store bought meal.

How to Make Sheet Pan Italian Sausage Sub Meal Step-by-Step
Step 1: Gather and prepare all ingredients.
Step 2: Heat the oven to 375F degrees.
Step 3: In a large bowl whisk together the garlic, lemon juice, zest, vinegar, olive oil and oregano.
Add the tomatoes, beans, onion and pepper and stir to coat with the vinaigrette.
Step 4: Place the veggies and sausage on a foil-lined pan and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Season the top generously with fresh pepper.
Step 5: Bake for 30 minutes, or until the mixture is slightly browned and bubbly.
Step 6: Divide the mixture between two plates and serve hot.
Sausages usually have a lot of salt as do garnishes like parmesan cheese and catsup so avoid using salt to season the tray before baking.
If you use uncooked sausages, pop them in the oven 20 minutes before adding the vegetables. Use your favorite meat and brand of sausage. Pork, turkey, chicken, or any combo of ingredients will work. Just be sure to adjust your WW points accordingly if it's a concern.
If the sausages get brown before the veggies are soft enough, use tongs to turn them over while the veggies finish cooking.
If you do feel like an old fashioned sub, then use buns to serve the sausages on with the veggies on and around the plate. Divine!
Other vegetables like cauliflower or zucchini can be roasted along with the veggies for a slightly unorthodox sub.
While the dinner bakes, set out the sides and toppings which can include mustard, catsup, a dish of marinara sauce for dipping, shredded parmesan, and pepperoncini.
Bread rounds or croutons would also be good here.
Ways to Use Leftovers
Toss any remaining sub supper leftovers with a few chopped lettuce leaves for a quick deli salad. Add a few of the above garnishes to dress it up. Leftovers will keep several days in a covered container in the fridge.
