“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24 NIV
Macaroni and cheese seems to be near the top of the list for ultimate comfort food! Whether you are browsing through a favorite cookbook or surfing the internet you will find as many different variations of mac ‘n cheese as stars in the sky! I tend to use one basic recipe and then change-up the cheese or sometimes add some meat. In the recipe I posted last fall, Mac n’ Cheese, instead of using cheddar cheese I used three different cheeses joined to make an outstanding flavor.
In today’s recipe I wanted to make a one-dish meal so I started with one of my very favorite healthy foods, aidells Chicken & Apple Sausage. First of all, it has chicken instead of pork (healthier) and when they threw in the apples, in my mind, that has to put the healthy meter over the top, right?
I started out by a quick saute’ of the thinly sliced sausage. I put a bit of a crunchy browning (looks burned, but it’s not) which will add awesome flavor to the macaroni and cheese.
While those were cooking I cooked up some elbow macaroni. I cooked them just to under done. They will finish cooking in the oven and this keeps them from going mushy. A quick mix all together.
In the meantime I made the cheesy white sauce. Yum. This particular time I used 4 cups, which is 16 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese.
Everything gets mixed together, topped with some crushed Ritz crackers (or whatever you have on hand) and into the oven for 30 minutes.
You will find the full recipe at the bottom of this post. In the meantime, please don’t forget to stop by my new Facebook Fan Page and click the “like” button! www.facebook.com/praycookblog . You don’t have to have a Facebook account to view fan pages!
