Kitchen Tips
Try using Italian-style soy-protein crumbles in place of the sausage for a vegetarian variation. In nonstick skillet, cook mushrooms and bell peppers in 1 teaspoon oil until tender. Stir in crumbles; cook until warm. Remove mixture from skillet; continue with step 2.
In place of the Cheddar cheese, use an Italian cheese blend.
