Sausage and Spinach Strata Recipe

From Every Day with Rachel Ray Magazine.

I made a few substitutions because 1. I forgot some things at the grocery store and 2. we couldn't find some things at the grocery store but it still turned out fabulously!

Next time I think I will make my own Pesto sauce. Check back on little Indiana for a recipe!

  • 1/3 Cup Jarred Pesto

  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 Cups Half-and-Half
  • 2 Ounces Pecorino-Romano, Finely Grated (1/2 Cup)
  • 3/4 Cup Scallions, Sliced (I used Onion)
