To whip up a pan, start by frying up some sweet or mild Italian sausage.  Both types taste fabulous in this casserole but our preference in this dish is the sweet variety.  The flavors goes very nicely with the casserole's mushrooms and tomatoes.

Then in the same pan, saute some chopped red onion and sliced portabella mushrooms until tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Mix the sausage, onions, and mushrooms with beaten eggs, a bunch of shredded mozzarella and Parmesan, some milk, and diced fresh tomato.  Bake in a 9x13-inch baking dish until the casserole is set, and then you're ready to serve it up.
