  5. Remove the vegetables from the oven; push to one side of the pan. Add sausage to the exposed portion of the pan.

  6. Roast until vegetables are tender and sausage is heated through, 10 to 15 minutes more, adding the pan with bread in the last 5 minutes of roasting time. Sprinkle vegetables and sausage with oregano and serve with bread.
