  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • 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.

  1. Very good one dish meal. I agree that there is quite a bit of prep involved but if you have the time it is worth it. I liked it because my cupboard was pretty bare but I had all these ingredients. It is also something out of the ordinary and that is always nice. I cut down the half and half with milk and it was still very good so that could cut a few fat calories...
  2. I like this. Seemed like it was a lot of prep work, but in the end wasnt too bad. I used condenced milk instead of half and half to cut down the fat, I dont think that was the best Idea.( Inside wasnt 'creamy' at all.) But all and all it was good and husband went back for 3rd's!
  3. I loved this!! The flavours were great, it wasn't complicated and after the initial cooking you just bung it in the oven!!! I wanted a recipe using Italian sausage because I've never cooked them before and I knew when I read the ingredients that I'd enjoy this. I made this meal for myself because the rest of the family wanted something that I don't like....well now they want the leftovers tomorrow but they'll have to fight me for them!! And I imagine that it will taste even better then (if that's possible) - thanks Charlotte J for a really tasty meal that I'll be making again!!
