Heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes uncovered. Brown ¾ of a pound of sweet Italian sausage and ¼ of a pound of ground pork and add to sauce and let simmer.
- In a pie pan, beat 1 egg with ¼ of a cup of milk and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Slice 6 medium-size green tomatoes ½ -inch thick. Lay out on a paper towel to drain. Coat tomato slices in flour, then dip into egg mixture. Add ¼ cup of olive oil to a skillet, fry tomatoes until golden brown on both sides, adding oil as needed.
- Arrange in alternate layers in 8 x12 inch pan the tomato sauce, tomatoes, ½ pound Mozzarella cheese, shredded, and ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle top with more grated Parmesan.
- Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
NotesThis is a summer time favorite made with fresh green tomatoes from the green house. I always double this recipe! You can also use your own Italian sauce recipe for this.
