One night while I was on a trip to Dallas, I decided to roast some veggies in the oven.  Little did I know, my friend Cindy “Lulu” would take roasted vegetables to a whole other level! Enjoy!


  • 4 chicken Italian sausages
  • 2 jars of marinara pasta sauce
  • 1 small can of Trader Joe’s green chiles
  • 1 small carton of fresh mushrooms
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 yellow pepper, chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 6 – 8 garlic cloves, chopped OR Spice World, minced or chopped garlic in the jar
  • 1 tablespoon – fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley, chopped
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt & freshly ground pepper to taste



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Roast the peppers, onion, garlic with olive oil on a flat baking sheet until tender (about 15 minutes).
  2. In a large stock pot, prepare the sausage by removing the skin, crumbling it up, browning it, and finally draining it.
