Torta Rustica Recipe

8 servings

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups chopped onions

1 1/2 teaspoons minced roasted garlic

8 ounces Italian-style turkey sausage, casing removed

1 can reduced-sodium diced tomatoes, undrained

3 cups each: sliced zucchini, mushrooms

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 package hot roll mix

1 cup very hot water

1 egg

1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese

2 tablespoons fat-free milk

Method:

Saute onions, garlic, and sausage in lightly greased large skillet until sausage is browned, about 5 minutes, stir in tomatoes with liquid, zucchini, and mushrooms, heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Simmer, uncovered, until sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

 

Make hot roll mix according to package directions, using hot water and egg. Roll 2/3 of the dough on floured surface to fit 2-quart casserole or souffle dish. Ease dough into casserole, allowing dough to extend 1 inch over edge. Spoon half the vegetable mixture into casserole, sprinkle with half the cheese. Top with remaining vegetable mixture and cheese.

 

Roll remaining dough into circle to fit top of casserole. Bring outside edges of dough together and crimp. Cut 1 to 2 slits in top of dough with sharp knife. Brush top of dough with milk. Bake at 400 degrees until crust is browned, about 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
