Note 1: Frozen broccoli florets are easy to use in this recipe. Take them out of the freezer. Let them begin to defrost. Chop into bite-size pieces.
Note 2: If using fresh broccoli florets, saute with the red peppers so the broccoli cooks through.
Note 3: When the casserole is cooked through, a toothpick can be inserted in center and come out clean.
Note 4: After you saute the sausage, drain and discard excess fat so your casserole is not greasy.
Note 5: Pre-shredded cheese can be used as a shortcut in this recipe.
