  • 1 pound green beans, ends trimmed and halved
  • 1 (14-ounce) can no-sugar-added diced tomatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped basil leaves, plus some for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 6 minutes. (Don't fully cook the sausage, as it will be finished in the oven.) Drain the fat from the skillet.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and peppers and cook, stirring, until tender, about 2 minutes. Add in the remaining ingredients except for the mushrooms, cherry peppers, and Parmesan and cook, stirring occasionally, for another 3 minutes.

Combine the sausage, vegetable mixture, mushrooms, and cherry peppers in the gratin dish. Bake uncovered until well browned, about 40 minutes. Serve garnished with basil leaves and Parmesan.
