DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet.
  • Crumble in the sausage and cook, stirring and breaking up the meat, until it loses its pink color.
  • Drain all but 1 tablespoon of fat off.
  • Add onions and bell peppers, season with salt and saute.
  • Add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute.
  • Add the oregano, crushed red pepper and tomatoes.
  • Stir, breaking up the tomatoes and cook until very thick.
  • Remove from the heat.
  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 3-quart casserole.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1/8 inch-thick slices.
  • Combine the flour with 1/4 cup of the cheese.
  • Place one-third of the potatoes in a layer in the casserole.
  • Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with half the flour mix.
  • Spoon on half the sausage and peppers.
  • Repeat layers ending with potatoes and seasonings.
  • Pour in the half-and-half and cover the casserole with aluminum foil.
  • Bake for 45 minutes.
  • Uncover the casserole and push the potatoes down to submerge them.
  • Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese and bake for another 40 minutes or so.
  • The top of the casserole will be a rich brown, and the dish will be very juicy.
  • Let rest for at least 20 minutes before serving.
