Italian Baked Sausage and Eggs [RECIPE]

Good Morning Friends!

Oh, do I have a recipe for you today! It had been quite a while since I last ate Italian sausage. But when I stumbled across this recipe, my mouth began to salivate with longing. Italian sausage and eggs reminds me of Shakshuka which I adore. This recipe inspired by Taste of Home is super easy to make, flexible in the ingredients, easy on the wallet, and loaded with flavor. I know you’re going to love it too. Mr. Noob Chef was trying to hunt down garlic bread at the store, but we ended up ripping up a fresh baguette to mop up the tomato and basil juices of this dish. It was heavenly. Eggs are baked right on top of a sausage, vegetable, and marinara sauce. Dollops of ricotta cheese are tucked under each egg to make everything cheesy, spicy, and flavorful.

Are you ready to make this dish too? Then let’s dive in!
