I lived next door to my mother-in-law Genolia for many years. She was a sweet little woman who could cook so well. We would look forward to getting our Southern Living Magazine every month. It always had, in fact it still does have the best recipes.
This is one of those we have made for many years. It is delicious, almost has a pizza taste to it. I can't help myself, after I brown the sausage and add the mushrooms, onions, peppers and seasonings I have to eat some of it. It is just delicious. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
