Chicken Sausage Mac & Cheese

Now that it’s getting colder, I’m getting out all my comfort food recipes. This is a good one!

I really like the addition of the tomatoes and basil, it gives it a good flavor. Also, this is a very quick recipe to throw together if you have everything on hand. It could become a new winter favorite in your household!


2 cups dry elbow macaroni

1 can (12 fl. oz.) evaporated lowfat 2% milk

8-oz pkg shredded Italian-style 4- or 5-cheese blend

6 oz fully-cooked Italian-seasoned chicken sausage, cut into slices

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half

2 Tbsp basil **I used dry basil**


Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain.

Meanwhile, combine evaporated milk, cheese, sausage, garlic powder and black pepper in medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted. Remove from heat.

Add pasta to cheese sauce; stir until combined. Add tomatoes and basil; stir gently until mixed in.
