This sausage casserole is a perfect weeknight dinner. Throw some diced bell pepper and onion in one pan, sausage in another and let Suvie cook this delicious meal for you. All that’s left to do is toss it all together with some cheese when Suvie’s finished and you’ve got a crowd-pleasing dinner ready to go. This recipe is also leftover approved! Feel free to use any sausage you like for this recipe but we recommend the Italian sausage from our protein box.
