Sausage Pie

When I was growing up, Mom made this tasty casserole often in summer for our family and guests. It's a great use of garden vegetables, and the sausage adds comforting flavor. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as we do. —Sally Holbrook, Pasadena, California

    I have made this dish quit a few times and we love it. I use a whole red pepper and no green pepper and I always use 1 lb of farmer type sausage either Italian or garlic. I precook it in the oven or BBQ and cut it up into small pieces. I really like that there is no pasta and no canned soup in this. A nice change from the usual casseroles. Fresh tomatoes are the best in it and they add plenty of moisture.

    I followed the recipe exactly, and I love all the ingredients individually, but something didn't jive well for me and this casserole. I was not a fan. Not sure just was not pleasant for my palate.

    We enjoyed this for dinner last night. I used five Italian sausage links and added a few cloves of fresh garlic and some chopped onion. Plenty of veggies in it for us - none of them came out of my garden, but they came outta somebody's garden LOL...

    I added more vegetables and about 5 extra herbs. Even so, my family sprinkled Tabasco sauce all over it and said it was not a keeper.

    I thought this recipe was really great and easy, nice change from using ground beef. I added a little more green pepper since I had extra in my garden.

    I am new at this - but after reading some of the reviews on this recipe and several others - I would never submit a recipe because I can't believe what Caty and unkind comments are made - everyone likes to read a recipe, then adjust it to their families liking - but Geese Louise - lets not tear each other apart doing it.

    I almost always change up recipes depending on what I have on hand... I used carrots, corn, canned tomatoes, spinach, peppers, & onions as my veggies. I used minute rice & I didn't bother with the bread crumb topping. Still an excellent result.

    Pretty simple (but filling meal) for a 'Pot Luck' style dinner. Personally I use 'Sweet' Italian Sausage rather than pork lins.
