My goodness Richard. Generalize much? White people season their food. Did you see where this recipe came from? Diabetic folks don't want extra potatoes, cheese, and salt. When I made this, I too added some things. Everyone do what is best for your diet and health concerns. Just because each person might use some different ingredients that you would not doesn't mean they're doing it wrong.

Who even thought of this? This has to be European, at least from England or the UK where people don't believe in seasonings. Just vinegar and oregano? What in the plain mess? It's just plain roasted vegetables. I made this with the addition of roasted potatoes. Then I added sea salt and pepper to the vegetables and potatoes. Then I added rosemary. At the end, I layered the sausage sliced up on top, covered it with Italian cheese then sprinkled oregano on top of that. Came out 100 times better than this plain Jane recipe. Add seasoning to your life, white people. Maybe you'll enjoy it more.

30 minutes to roast the veggies is too much. My veggies ended up too charred. I will try 20 next time. Also I could not find cooked chicken sausage, so I had to cook myself. Lastly I added mushrooms when I cooked the sausage

One of the easiest sheet-pan dinners ever! It's fast to make and even easier to clean up with just the one pan.
