Sausage and Pepper Pie

Growing up with a large family my Mom would make this tasty casserole often . She would said to me, “get out there in the garden and get some fresh peppers and herbs, we are having a sausage pepper pie tonight!) Yes we always had a garden and this was a favorite dish our family enjoyed. As mom would say “it was enough to feed an army.”
16 pork sausage links or Italian sausages,  both are great
1/2 medium green pepper, chopped
1/2 medium red pepper, chopped
1 Tbsp. oil
3 cups cooked long grain rice
4 to 5 medium tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1 package (10oz,) frozen corn, thawed
1 cup (4oz.) shredded cheddar
2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 Tsp. salt
1 Tsp. fresh basil, chopped
1 cup soft bread crumbs
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1. Place sausages in a large pot of water and boil for about 15 minutes. Take them out and brown them in butter. Cut them up into 1 inch pieces, set aside.
2. In a large skillet, sauté peppers in oil for 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Transfer to 3 -qt. baking dish. Add the sausages and the next eight ingredients.
3. Combine bread crumbs and butter; sprinkle over top. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degree for 30 to 40 minutes. Make sure to add extra cheese when you serving. ENJOY!!
