Updated May 22, 2014

Ingredients

  • 1 pouch (4.7 oz) Betty Crocker™ roasted garlic mashed potatoes
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 lb bulk mild Italian pork sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup tomato pasta sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (2 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate. Cook potatoes as directed on pouch—except use 3/4 cup water and 3/4 cup milk; omit butter. After 5-minute stand time, stir in eggs. Spread cooked potatoes mixture in bottom and up sides of pie plate, forming a crust.

    Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Stir in pasta sauce and basil. Reduce heat to low; cook about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot. Pour into potato-lined pie plate.
  • 3
    Bake about 25 minutes or until crust edges just begin to turn golden brown. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake about 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Hot Italian pork sausage can be used in place of mild Italian sausage.
  • tip 2
    If you decide to use sausage links instead of bulk sausage, remember to remove the casings before cooking.
