Preheat your oven to 350°, spray your lasagna pan with spray butter

This is an easy layering dish. First thing your potatoes.

Sprinkle your oregano and parsley. Next red crushed pepper, this spice is very hot, if you do not like very spicy food, do not use a lot. Your lips will be burning and probably clean out your sinuses as well 🙂 .

Next your onions and garlic. Don’t be shy, cover all of the potatoes.

Now add your sweet Italian sausage. Divide evenly.

Now add your butter dividing evenly then sprinkle more oregano and parsley.

Cover with tin foil and bake till potatoes are soft. About and hour.

Remove casserole from oven and tin foil. Sprinkle your cheese over the top covering the entire dish. Place back in the oven till cheese is melted, do not place tin foil back on.

Once cheese is melted, remove from oven using your hot mitts.

Serve warm, serves about 6
