Expert Tips

Turkey Italian sausage can be used in place of the regular Italian sausage.

After baking, garnish this casserole with a wreath of fresh herb sprigs. Try parsley, oregano or basil, alone or in combination.

This hearty dish goes well with crusty French bread or breadsticks and red and green grapes.
