Sausage and Potato Casserole

Serves 4

This Pennsylvania Dutch recipe, with baked sausage, potatoes and other vegetables, is a quick, easy and delicious main dish for a busy weeknight or casual entertaining, needing only a salad to make a complete meal. Fresh sausage in Pennsylvania is quite different than the sausage I can get where I currently live and I miss that flavor. However, any fresh sausage can be used or, if preferred, the casserole can be made with smoked sausage.


Preheat oven to 400° F. Combine all ingredients in a baking dish lightly coated or sprayed with oil, adding just enough oil to the sausage and vegetables to lightly coat. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Garnish with the fresh parsley and serve immediately or cover and keep warm in a low oven for up to 30 minutes.
