Preheat the oven to 400°F (204°C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
On the prepared baking sheet, combine the peppers and onion. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and then spread in a single layer. Place the sausages on top.
Roast until the sausages and cooked through and the vegetables are tender, 25 to 40 minutes.
Taste the vegetables and adjust the seasoning, if desired. Serve with the sausages (and buns and mustard, if using).

This recipe transported me straight to Fenway Park. It really does taste like a ball-park sausage. And this is a great last-minute dinner when you want something tasty but quick.
I baked the sausage mixture for 30 minutes but found that the sausage, although cooked through, didn’t have that great outer brown color so I put my pan under the broiler for 2 minutes and the sausages then looked great as well as tasted great.
I mixed the vegetables right on the sheet pan, sprinkled with olive oil, and tossed them. It worked fine. It was about 3 servings or 2 servings for hungry folks.
Hubby came home from work, saw the sheet pan of cooked ingredients, and immediately said, "Wow! That looks fantastic." To me, it reminded me of all the mouthwatering smells from the hot dog carts outside of concert arenas, you know, when the show has ended and you grab one before the long drive home.
I used 3 bell peppers, as I know my family likes more peppers with their sausage sandwiches—1 red, 1 orange, and 1 yellow. I cut them into long strips between 1/4 and 1/3 inch thickness. I cut 1 the sweet onion into strips of 1/8 to 1/4 inch so they'd melt down, as we like a deeper, more caramelized onion.
I used 1 pound hot Italian sausages and served them on a toasted pretzel bun with yellow mustard and sauerkraut. We wanted the veggies cooked a little longer so increased the roasting time an additional 15 minutes. It probably would have been fine increasing only 10, but I got sidetracked. Fortunately, everything came out fine.
This recipe was so easy and delicious it will definitely be in the "make again and again" category of go-to meals.
