  6. Pour half of the egg mixture over the sausage and bread mixture in each hotel pan. Top each with 3 cups of Angela Mia® Whole Peeled Pear Tomatoes.

  7. Wrap tightly with aluminum foil; store in refrigerator for at least 8 hours.

  8. Bake at 350°F for 30 to 45 minutes, or until strata reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
