Italian Heritage Casserole Recipe

Publisher Photo
Every bite of this hearty one-dish meal brings back memories of my grandmother's Italian kitchen. To this day, I can picture Grandma slicing fresh sausage, dicing crispy peppers and adding "just a pinch" of oregano. I stir up those memories often— this casserole's a favorite for family gatherings, church suppers and post-practice community choir socials.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2009

I love this recipe, and it has become a big-time favorite with my family. One problem though; every time I make it, I end up with about an inch of water at the bottom, which washes all the spices off the potatoes. Any idea how I can avoid this? Or is it normal?

This was good. When I made this I left out the sausage. Next time we will add more peppers and seasoning, with less potatoes.
