    We really enjoyed this easy -to-make casserole. I made it exactly as directed and it turned out great! However, I used fresh pork sausage which I had in the refrigerator; it was good but I think using the Italian sausage as listed in the recipe will taste even better, so that's the way I'll be making it next time. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    A great dish and all of the ingredients are something that I always have on hand. The flavor blends well and no changes was needed.

    This is awesome! I, too, had to cook it longer for the sake of the potatoes -- 1 hr. 20 min. It's great just the way it is, but I'm envisioning adding mushrooms, hot peppers and perhaps sauteed chicken when I have a crowd for dinner. Thanks Marie!

    This was very tasty and didn't require much work. I added one extra garlic clove because we LOVE garlic! Also, next time I will cut the potatoes a little smaller so they cook faster.

    I didn't think the potatoes would go with these ingredients and I was right, it would have been better with rice. Plus the potatoes took a long time to cook so the whole cooking time ended up being 1 hr and 45 mins

    My family has been making for years. We cut the potatoes lengthwise in quarters or skinnier (like skin on French fries) and add some Good season salad dressing (made with the packet). One of the best dishes that we have been eating since the 70's when my grandmother made this. We still use her old black speckled roasting pan to cook it. One thing we do is wait to put in the peppers until the last 25 minutes since they cook faster. Keeps them a little firmer.

    5 stars for the ease of prep, and nice flavour. I served this with some parmesan cheese on top, used a red pepper instead of green, and a can of diced tomatoes. Also used 1 tsp italian seasoning with the basil. I had to cook this for closer to 1 hour to get my potatoes tender enough. Thanks for posting!
