I used Johnsonville Naturals Italian sausage in this recipe along with fresh red and green peppers.  I love that I can make whip up a quick and easy casserole recipe the night before for a worry free weekend breakfast.  I also love knowing that I am feeding my family sausage that is 100% all natural with no artificial preservatives and without sacrificing great flavor!  All of the ingredients listed on the package are ingredients I know and have in my own kitchen.
