This updated twist on the classic sausage, peppers, and onions transforms the delicious trio into a hearty casserole that includes fennel, potatoes, and Parmesan cheese. You can use any flavor Italian chicken sausage you have on hand, and you'll love the vinegary mustard sauce that you toss all the ingredients in. The slow-cooked, tender veggies and potatoes plus the hearty chorizo make for a comforting, filling, party-ready dish that would be a showstopper at any potluck, but is also easy enough to throw together for a go-to weeknight dinner.
