Do you love pasta? Do you like pasta with a kick? Then this is the pasta dish for you! Andouille sausage has a nice little kick to it, so when it is paired with pasta, it makes a fun pasta dish, with a kick! Love that!

This is a really easy pasta dish you can make at home. It’s a fun way to mix American cuisine with and Italian favorite. Can we call this, Italian-American fusion? I think so!

Without further ado, here are the ingredients and directions to make this yummy andouille sausage pasta dish with chicken, at home!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 olive oil
  • 2 cloved minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 10 oz chopped andouille sausage link
  • 2 chopped tomatoes
  • 1 lb. pasta, your choice for shape
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 pats butter
  • 1/2 pound shredded chicken, or vegan chicken. Pre-cook your chicken! The tomatoes will turn the chicken pink, so you want to make sure your chicken is thoroughly cooked before mixing it with the tomatoes.
  • Season to taste: paprika, basil, oregano, salt, black pepper

Fill your large pot with water and bring to a boil. While you are waiting for your pasta pot to boil, mix your sauce ingredients together into a large sauce pot. The tomatoes will add a little juice to the sauce. This helps it cook, and keeps your sauce from drying out. Embrace the juice.

Cook the sauce on low for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Serve, top with grated parmesan, and enjoy! I hope you love this easy pasta dish with a kick! If andouille sausage isn’t your thing, you can always make this dish a milder sausage of your choice. The possibilities are endless!

Cheesy Sausage Casserole recipe

cheesy sausage casserole recipe with potatoes

Casseroles are so easy to make, and they tend to hide the flavors of foods such as vegetables which are often snubbed by children. This is why I love making casseroles! They are easy to make, and my kids will eat the healthy stuff because the flavors are blended together; if not masked entirely. Love that!

This cheesy sausage casserole is super easy to make. All you have to do is chop the ingredients, mix them together, and bake! The resulting flavor is yummy, and enjoyed by both adults and children. That is a huge win! So, without further ado, here is my easy, cheesy sausage casserole recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 8 bockwurst sliced (or any sausage of your choice)
  • 1.5 lbs. Dutch yellow potatoes (cut in half)
  • 4 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • three dashes of salt
  • paprika, basil (season to taste)
  • 2 pats of butter cut in quarters
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (I like the Mexican cheese mix by Kraft)
  • Tools: mixing bowl, casserole dish, wooden spoon

Pre-heat the oven to 350. Once you have cut and sliced the ingredients, mix the potatoes, carrots and sausage into a mixing bowl. Coat the mixture with olive oil and salt. Stir. Then add the basil and paprika and stir. Then add the 2 pats of butter, which should be quartered. Then add the 2 cups of shredded cheese and stir. Cover the casserole dish and bake for 1 hour at 350.

After the casserole is done cooking, let it sit covered outside of the oven for roughly five minutes. Then, uncover and serve! Since this casserole has both potatoes and sausage, it can be filling. I recommend starting everyone out with one scoop, and if that is not enough food, go back for seconds. This recipe serves six people. Enjoy!

I hope you love my cheesy sausage casserole recipe. My family does!
