Happy Anniversary you sexy beasts you!
No seriously, it’s been awesome to make it two years, and I hope it continues. I have so many ideas I want to try and share with you. I want to say thank you, for if it wasn’t you guys, this page wouldn’t still be here. This last year was an interesting one, but nothing is stopping this movement right?
With that said, here’s my creation this week!
I don’t have a name for it, but it kinda just came to me in the store. You see, my kids love macaroni and cheese, or tuna casserole. Both they have burnt me out on. It’s how this blog was made, I wanted to create new things, and began to build a menu for my restaurant ideas, among other things.
As I joke with friends, some are addicted to shoes. Some are addicted to clothes. I’m addicted to creating new dishes and cocktails. Yesterday was no exception. As I walked through the store, I was thinking tuna casserole, but figured I’d have a frozen dinner, until I saw them.
Chicken Apple Sausages.
Now, for those of you who have been around, you know I have cooked with these before. Just not in the way I did last night. Taking the recipe I learned from family to make tuna casserole, I took the tuna out, and subsituted the chicken apple sausage.
Now, this may sound gross, but wait! I’m not done……
Chicken Apple Sausage Casserole
3 packages Chicken Apple Sausage, chopped
I package frozen broccoli pieces
3 cans cream of mushroom
1 can chicken broth
2-3 bags shredded cheese(I used 4 cheese mexican), divided
1-2 boxes tri-flavor penne
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Make pasta as directed. Strain, and put back into pot. Mix in ingredients, with one half of the cheese. Spray casserole dish with non stick spray. Pour mixture into pan. Then top with remaining cheese. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown.
The top should have a crispiness to it.
It was a hit! My kids loved it, and I loved it. I shared some with my mom and younger brothers. It was gone by this morning. Took me maybe 30 minutes to prep. Another 30 minutes to cook. If you are in a hurry, you could make it up early, which I did since I had errands to still run. Option 2 could be sautee the sausages before mixing them on and just make this a stove top dish.
