Do you ever dream of a recipe? I find that I often dream about food.

I just so happened to dream up this recipe for Italian Sausage Bake. Since most of the time you only remember about 1% of an actual dream, this is what I would like to think the dream was about.

I dreamed I was in the kitchen and craving Italian food. I wanted a hearty meal for a Sunday supper and I wanted to use up quite a bit of produce I had on hand. I also wanted to give my husband the evening off from doing dishes, so I knew I needed to make this a one-pot meal.

Get where I'm going with this dream? A hearty one-pot meal fit for any weekend supper. To be honest, my Spicy Italian Sausage bake doesn't have to be reserved for a weekend supper. It can be cooked on a week night. That's when I made this dish: after a busy day at the office. We may or may not have eaten dinner around 9 that night (but let me just tell you it was well worth the slow-roasting wait).

The baked sausages taste just as good as my Grilled Italian Sausage with Grilled Sweet Peppers. Oh, and did I mention that the flavors develop even more if you happen to use leftovers. Both the first and second time I made this recipe it was just my husband and I dining on this baked gem.

Each time we ate more than our share in servings, leaving us with a small amount of leftovers for work the next day. Whether you are entertaining or just want a simple meal, my spicy Italian sausage bake is sure to please any crowd!

    I cook with Community Cooks where each cook makes a part of a meal at home, and putting the casseroles together we do a meal for a whole homeless shelter or program! The assigned meal for March is 'sausages and vegetables' This will be perfect! Thank you!

    This dinner is awesome. My whole family loves it. The only difficulty is remembering to start it 2 hours before we want to eat.

    It will not let me print the recipe.

    Sounds yummy! Wondering if the veggies are really mushy after being baked for 2 hours?

    OMG, this was great. The anticipation of eating this, from the picture to the smell of it cooking.....it did not disappoint. My carnivore of a toddler ate all her veggies tonight....yay! Adding to the rotation, for sure.
