3 links of pork Italian sausage, removed from its casings and cooked through
½ tsp (5 ml) Italian seasoning (dried basil, oregano, parsley, marjoram blend)
¼ tsp (1.25 ml) fennel seeds
½ cup (120 ml) roasted peppers
1 cup (240 ml) grated mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp (15 ml) fresh basil, julienned
Preheat oven to 350F (176C).
In a large skillet, heat olive oil in a pan. Remove sausage from its casings and sauté, breaking up with a wooden spoon and browning on all sides until cooked through. Transfer sausage with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with a paper towel to drain. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs. Then add the cottage cheese, butter, flour, baking soda, salt and pepper.
Stir in sausage, red peppers and cheese. Pour into a greased skillet, or 9 x 13 casserole dish. Bake for 30 mins or until set and cooked through.
Garnish with freshly chopped basil. Slice into wedges and serve!
