Penne pasta and smoked sausage

Penne pasta and smoked sausage

Not the best recipe, but it was alright.

I had some smoked sausage in the house and decided to try a new recipe to use this ingredient. I was not real pleased with the results however, my husband really liked this. This is an easy recipe and requires common ingredients you may already have on hand, but it is definitely not a recipe I would make if I were expecting company over.

Here is a list of the ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • 2 c. penne pasta, uncooked
  • 1 lb. fully cooked smoked sausage, cut into ¼-inch slices
  • 1 ½ c. milk
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 1 ½ c. cheddar french-fried onions, divided
  • ½ c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ½ c. cheddar cheese, shredded

To make this recipe, begin by cooking the pasta according to the directions on the package. While this is cooking, drain the sausage slices in a skillet for around 5 minutes and then drain.

Take a large bowl, and mix together the soup and milk. Add ½ of the french-fried onions, ¼ c. mozzarella cheese and ¼ c. cheddar cheese. Stir together well and then add the sausage. Finally, add the pasta to this mixture and place it in a greased 13 x 9 pan. Cover the dish and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until it is hot and bubbly. Top with the remaining onions and cheeses and return to the oven, uncovered, for an additional five minutes or until the cheese is melted and the onions are golden brown.
