  • 3 squash (small, yellow, diced)
  • 3 potatoes (medium, peeled and diced)
  • 1 can tomatoes (Italian stewed, cut up)

Directions

1. Brown sausage and onion together in a skillet; drain. Mix all ingredients together and place in a casserole dish.

If I make this again, I will pre-cook the vegetables, particularly the potatoes, before putting together for the oven-- as the vegetables were not cooked enough in 45 minutes. Also, I had to drain off quite a lot of the liquid after cooking in the oven. To add a little more flavor, I added (about 1/4 cup) low fat mozzarella cheese.

This is ok. Nothing holds it together so it's not a typical casserole consistency, it's just loose veggies with meat. Simple way to get lots of veggies with some flavor from the sausage.
