Well, as a working mom, quick meals are a necessity. Lucky for me there are lots of quick meal quick books out there. A few of my favorites happen to be Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks. Since real people are the ones submitting the recipes, you know they have been tried and tested to be good! And this week's Hunk of Meat Monday Recipe is Smoked Sausage Mac and Cheese Skillet.
The recipe was adapted from one I found in GP's Meals in Minutes cookbook that I have had for several years now.
The original recipe had been Skillet Ham & Cheese, but I had smoked sausage that needed to be used. I didn't think the author would mind a substitution!
Begin with the veggies.
As they are sautéing, chop up the smoked sausage into slices.
Once the vegetables are tender, add the flour to form a paste.
Slowly add milk. Add macaroni and sausage.
Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes.
Mix in cheese and sour cream into the skillet.
Mix thoroughly. Enjoy!
