Some like it hot! This colorful medley of baked vegetables, eggs and cheese uses spicy sausage to really turn up the heat.

1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1
loaf (about 10 inches) French bread, cut into 3/4-inch slices
1/2
cup roasted red bell peppers, from 7-ounce jar, cut into 1/4-inch strips
2

6

3/4
cup ricotta cheese
2
cups milk
1/2

  • 2 Arrange bread slices in ungreased rectangular baking dish, 11x7x1 1/2 inches, cutting to fit if necessary. Spread sausage mixture over bread. Top with bell peppers and zucchini.
  • 3 Beat eggs and ricotta cheese in medium bowl, using fork, until blended. Stir in milk. Pour over mixture in baking dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover tightly and refrigerate at least 2 hours but no longer than 24 hours.

Tips  

A strata is typically a casserole-type dish of prepared bread that is seasoned, topped with meat or vegetables and baked under a layer of beaten eggs and cheese.

To roast your own bell peppers, broil whole peppers with tops about 5 inches from heat, turning occasionally, until the skin is blistered and evenly browned but not burned. Place them in a plastic bag and close tightly. Let stand 20 minutes, then remove the skin, stems, seeds and membranes.
