  • 2 cups frozen pepper strips, thawed
  • 8 ounces raw turkey sausage, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon table salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¾ cup low-fat shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a medium square or rectangular baking dish with cooking spray. Place potatoes and then vegetables in a baking dish; top with sausage.

Bake until casserole is hot and cheese is browned, about 45 minutes. Cut into 6 pieces and serve. 

Casserole Shopping Tip

Ingredients like rice, pasta, and beans make for great casserole bases -– they are inexpensive, come in a variety of sizes and flavors, and can stretch meat and vegetables a long way.

Casserole Cooking Tip

Cut ingredients into similar-sized pieces to ensure even cooking and add any ingredients that cook quickly towards the end.
