Sausage and sweet potatoes pair up to make a hearty warming supper pie.
lb bulk pork sausage
cup sliced fresh mushrooms
cup chopped onion
medium dark orange sweet potato (about 12 oz), peeled, cubed (2 cups)
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
Pillsbury™ Pet-Ritz® frozen deep dish pie crust (from 12-oz package)
Place cookie sheet on oven rack. Heat oven to 400°F.
Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook sausage, mushrooms and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Stir in sweet potato and water; heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 6 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Uncover; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until liquid is evaporated. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese. Spoon into partially baked crust.
Bake on cookie sheet 25 minutes, covering loosely with foil last 10 minutes of baking. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered about 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Save time by using precooked sausage crumbles, available in the meat department at your supermarket.
Some like it hot! Choose mild or hot sausage to make this dish just as spicy as you like. Or add 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) with the water.
