57BD2D2F-F569-4AD4-BB42-487CC35D1D39

A simple One Pan meal that can be made with Hot Italian Sausage, like I did, or Mild Italian Sausage. This is a hearty dish that is tomato based with fresh herbs and topped with Mozzarella cheese. Although I picked my herbs fresh from my garden you can use dried herbs if you donโ€™t have fresh. Using the Italian Sausage with the herbs gave this a wonderful flavor.

  1. As part of my kitchen cleanout, I went through my recipe file tonight. My recipe files were a mess, all just thrown in a box and drawer, so I organized them into into recipes I have tried and liked, recipes I might like to try, and Diane’s recipes I have printed and intend to try. See you have your own personal file now!
