Simple Roasted Fennel and Sausage with Brussels Sprouts and Broccoli

I'm in the home stretch of Whole30 this week and couldn't be happier with how much I've gotten out of it. It's been a fun challenge in the kitchen, and my daily routine in general. We've made a couple variations of this dish and decided to share Robert's favorite, fennel and sausage with brussels and broccoli.

After happily devouring this for dinner over the weekend, I repurposed the leftovers into breakfast and lunch (it makes a killer frittata, FYI). The fennel isn't too overpowering, and leaving the brussels sprouts whole keeps them from getting too mushy. Also, bonus to be able to throw it all in the roasting pan and let it do its thing without too much prep time. Weeknight dinner rut, solved.
