Tasty Tuesday!!-Sausage and Artichoke Casserole

Here begins my "Tasty Tuesday" posts by which I share with you successful recipes I have tried, and/or altered to fit our life.

This week's recipe doesn't sound good at first glance. But, um, yeah...it was super yum.

We, of course, used Venison sausage because we have tons of deer to eat....but you can use pork or turkey sausage. With pork you may want to drain your meat after your initial baking time.

1 lb "pan" sausage
1 (12 oz) jar of marinated artichoke hearts
1 1/2 (5oz) bag of butter and garlic croutons
1/2 cup onions, bellpepper and celery chopped fine (We used onions only because of my picky eaters)
1 can of chicken broth (reduced sodium)
3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Chop artichokes into small pieces

Cooking Instructions:

1. Crumble sausage and place in a 13"x9" baking dish, bake 8-10 min (you may want to drain after this step)
2. Crumble sausage into fine pieces. Stir in artichokes, croutons, veggie mix, chicken broth and cheese; cover with foil and back 20 min.
3. Remove foil and bake another 10 min or until browned. Serve.

I served it with green beans, but a salad would be good, too! My family LOVED it! (As you can see) Bon Appetit!
