2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables and fruits

Heat the oven to 425°F.
  • Cut the radicchio in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 3 wedges.
  • Cut the fennel lengthwise into ½-inch-thick wedges.
  • Using your hands or a sharp knife, peel the orange; cut the fruit crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices. Discard any seeds.
  • Peel the pear, if desired; core and cut into ½-inch-thick slices.
In a large bowl, stir together the radicchio, fennel, orange, pear, lemon vinaigrette, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Season generously with salt and pepper.
On a sheet pan, spread the vegetables and fruits in an even layer.


Prep the sausages

  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork.
On the pan with the vegetables and fruits, nestle in the sausages. [On a 2nd sheet pan, place the sausages.]


Roast the vegetables, fruits, and sausages

Roast until the vegetables and fruits are starting to soften and the sausages are browned but not yet cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven. Stir the vegetables and fruits, turn the sausages, and continue roasting until the vegetables and fruits are tender and the sausages are cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes longer. Remove from the oven and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the vegetables, fruits, and sausages cook, prepare the garnish.


Prep the garnish

  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.


Transfer the vegetables and fruits to individual plates and top with the sausages. Drizzle over the pesto, garnish with the parsley, and serve.
