Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray 13×9 inch glass or ceramic baking dish with cooking spray.  Cook sausage until browned.  Add bell peppers, onions, garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook 6 to 8 minutes or until vegetables are slightly softened, stirring occasionally.  Drain; discard drippings.

Arrange half of the bread cubes in baking dish; layer with half of the sausage mixture and 1 cup of the provolone cheese.  Repeat layers.

Whisk egg lightly in medium bowl.  Whisk in milk, salt and pepper until well-blended.  Pour over bread mixture in baking dish, pressing down so all ingredients are moistened.  Cover, refrigerate overnight.

Next morning:  Sprinkle with Asiago cheese.  Bake, uncovered, 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and set.  Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes before serving.  Sprinkle with basil.
