Italian Sausage Melt

Just a quick and easy italian sausage casserole.  We liked this, but Randal thought he might like it better with a marinara sauce instead of the alfredo.

1 1/4  cups bisquick
1/4  cup butter, softened
2  tablespoons very hot water
1/2  lb bulk spicy Italian sausage
1/2  cup chopped green bell pepper
1  cup Alfredo sauce
1  cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2  cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
2  tablespoons fresh basil leaves, cut into strips

Heat oven to 400. Grease bottom of 8-inch square  baking dish.

In medium bowl, stir bisquick, butter and water until dough forms. Press dough in bottom of pan.

Cook sausage and bell pepper over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sausage is no longer pink. Spread sausage mixture over crust; spread pasta sauce over sausage. Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle tomatoes and basil over top.
