Stuffed Tator

This isn’t just any old meat and potatoes recipe. This is an Italian twist on the American version of a chili and cheese topped baked potato. I also love this meal because its a one pot, easy, fast, and filling week night dinner. I was inspired from a food network recipe that this originates from and just cant get enough of it.

  • 1/2 pound hot Italian sausage out of the casing (you can also use sweet Italian sausage if making for kids)
  • 4 baked potatoes
  • Arugula
  • Chopped medium yellow onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Jar of marinara
  • 1/2 cup of marscapone
  • Grated parmesano reggiano

Sweat the onions and garlic in some olive oil. Once they are translucent add the ground sausage to brown. Cook down the arugula when adding the marinara sauce. Then stir in the marscapone cheese, to make the sauce a pinky blush color. In the mean time bake the potatoes in the oven and split in half when slightly cooled.

 

Happy Eating, XO.
