    What’s a good sub for the shrimp in the shrimp/sausage pan? Normally I’d say sausage but the dish already has that as well. Allergies here but otherwise it looks great. Thanks!

    I love these sheet pan dinners. I really hate to have to think of something to cook every day!
    I confess once my kids left home (I was single at the time) I lost interest in cooking. LOL
