The first step is to prepare the seasoned dressing according to the packaging directions. While the dressing rested, I cook the seasoned ground sausage. When the meat is almost finished cooking, I added chopped celery, green onions, minced garlic, and fresh mushrooms.
I lightly sprayed a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with cooking spray. After I drained and discarded the grease from the sausage mixture, I placed it into my baking dish and added chopped fresh spinach (this is a sneaky way to get your kids to eat their spinach!)
The final touch was adding a layer of shredded Monterey Jack cheese, then drizzling a mixture of eggs and cream, then topping with Parmesan cheese. I placed the casserole into a preheated 400 degrees F oven for about 30 minutes. The final step was to remove the casserole from the oven, add a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and bake for another 5 minutes.
