"Spetsofai" Greek Country Sausage Casserole

This sausage dish is the specialty of the Mount Pilion area. Mostly served during the winter months in the mountain tavernas. Local people still make their own spicy sausage. I spent Easter there, wanted to taste the dish made by the locals but cause of Lent they didn't serve any meat dishes. So I bought some & this is how I made it! It was delicious but a bit spicier than what I'd like. My husband & I though shared a bottle of wine. Not spicy any more:) It's suppose to be spicy but all depends on the sausage you use. Hope you try it & enjoy it!
