Sausage and Potato Pie

From Reader's Digest "One Dish Meals" cookbook, this yummy dish is a thin potato crust filled with sausage, cheese, red pepper and zucchini. We typically use the kielbasa option (cut into discs) with mozzarella cheese and red potatoes. It never lasts long!

ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large red pepper, cored, seeded, and cut into strips 1/4-inch wide
  • 1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic cloves
  • 12 teaspoon black pepper
  • 14 cup fresh basil, minced (or 1/4 cup minced flat-leaf parsley mixed with 2 teaspoons crumbled dried basil)
  • 1 lb sweet Italian sausage, casings removed (or kielbasa, sliced or ham, sliced)
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and very thinly sliced
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated (4 ounces)
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded (or Monterey Jack, fontina, or Cheddar cheese, 8 ounces)

directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a 12-inch skillet over moderately high heat for 1 minute.
  • Add the red pepper and zucchini and sauté, stirring occasionally until soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the garlic, black pepper and basil, and sauté 2 minutes longer.
  • Add the sausage, breaking up any clumps, and sauté until no longer pink but not quite cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Toss the potatoes with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil.
  • Spread 1/4 of the potatoes, overlapping slightly, over the bottom of a lightly greased 10-inch pie pan or a 13" x 9" x 2" baking dish.
  • Spread 1/3 of the skillet mixture on top, followed by 1/3 each of the Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Press each layer down with your hands.
  • Repeat the layers twice, finishing with a top layer of potatoes.
  • Cover the pie with foil, set in the lower third of the oven, and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and bake until the potatoes are crisp and cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes more.
  • Remove the pie from oven and let stand for 10 minutes at room temperature. Carefully pour off any fat, then cut the pie into wedges. Serves 6.

    Not sure what I did wrong with this, but it didn't turn out very well.. I used my food processor to thinly slice the potatoes and zucchini. I layered everything as listed, but it didn't cook all the way through (potatoes were still crunchy) and the cheese didn't melt. The top burnt... Perhaps I'll try again.
