Crumble sausage into a large skillet and cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, Remove from skillet with a slotted spoon, pressing out excess fat. Spoon into pie plate. Top with hash browns, bell pepper and tomato slices and top with Cheddar. In a medium-size bowl, beat together eggs, milk, black and herbs. Pour over cheese. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes, until slightly puffed and a knife inserted in center comes out clean. (if making ahead, let cool completely, then wrap and refrigerate. To reheat, cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven 20 to 30 minutes.) Garnish with tomato slices and Parmesan.
