The juicy grape tomatoes, sweet red bell peppers, and onion take longer to cook than the plant-based sausages, so they get a head start in the oven. We also halve a log of precooked polenta and place it on the sheet pan opposite the veg to get some attractive browning. The garlic and fresh rosemary in the vegetables echo the flavors of the Italian sausage links that are the cornerstone of the meal. We arrange the sausages in this Sheet-Pan Italian Sausage with Peppers, Onions, Tomatoes, and Polenta by America’s Test Kitchen atop the softened vegetables and then fire up the broiler—a few minutes of the intense heat browns the sausages and caramelizes the softened vegetables.

Moist and sweet, this Peach Upside Down Cake by Fabio Gallo is scrumptious. Delicious caramelized peaches on a fresh lemon vegan sponge. A upside down cake can be a little tricky, you want to make sure, the fruits are cooked, the sugar caramelized and the sponge is baked. Before reversing the cake, it has to rest for about 10 minutes, so the caramel can set but is still soft enough so the fruits won’t stick to the bottom.

Most of us don’t have the luxury of taking regular strolls through the food markets of Tuscany in late September, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy Italian autumnal flavors at home. This Farro Bowl with Butternut Squash, Sausage, and Radicchio by America’s Test Kitchen showcases the bounty of an Italian harvest with crunchy, bitter radicchio and sweet roasted butternut squash over a base of nutty, pleasantly chewy farro (an ancient Mediterranean grain beloved in Italy). Gorgeous ripe figs give the bowl a honeyed sweetness that’s balanced by the piquant Dijon–balsamic vinegar dressing. In keeping with the theme, we combine our homemade Italian sausage seasoning with plant-based meat and top each bowl with the resulting sausagey, savory crumbles. Any type of fresh fig will work in this recipe. You can substitute 1½ cups seedless grapes, quartered, for the figs, if desired.
