Directions

  1. To make the crust: Combine the parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and seasoning.

  3. Press into the bottom of a 9" springform pan; set to the side.
  4. To make the coulis: Heat the oil in a medium saucepan and saute the garlic and shallots until tender.
  5. Add the tomatoes and cook for five minutes.
  6. Add seasoning and mustard.
  7. Whirl mixture in food processor or blender and strain; let cool until needed.
  8. To make the filling: Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  9. In a large skillet, cook the sausage; drain off fat.

  11. Beat the cheeses in a bowl until smooth.
  12. Add the cream, cooked sausage and vegetable mixture; blend in the eggs.
  13. Pour into the crust and place the springform pan into a larger pan; add an inch of warm water and bake for a 65 minutes or until set (the cheesecake should feel firm when lightly touched).
