Italian Sausage Filling
  1. Lower your oven temperature to 400°F.
  2. While your biscuits are baking, heat the olive oil in a large deep cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the Italian sausage and cook, crumbling with a wooden spoon until lightly browned. Drain fat.
  3. Add the onion, green pepper, mushrooms, kosher salt, oregano, basil and red pepper flakes to the skillet. Cook over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes, until softened, stirring often.
  4. Add the garlic and continue to cook for one minute.
  5. Stir in the Marsala cooking wine and cook until mostly evaporated.
  6. Stir in the crushed tomatoes and granulated sugar and cook until the mixture begins to bubble, stirring often. Remove from the heat.
  7. Sprinkle the filling with both cheeses and gently mix in.
  8. Top the filling with the biscuits. You can use as many will fit on top of the filling and save the rest in an airtight container for snacking.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes on the second to the lowest rack in your oven until the biscuits are nicely browned and you see some bubbling around the edges of the skillet.
  10. Remove from the oven and let stand for about 5 minutes before serving.
