YUMMERS this is a family favorite. I got the recipe from a package of Hillshire Farms Smoked Sausage years ago and it became an instant favorite. I have tweaked it a bit for our tastes.
12 oz shell or penne shaped pasta*(see note below for a gluten free variation)
16oz smoked sausage, (a local farm store makes and EXCELLENT nitrate free chicken based one that we enjoy)
1 cup milk
1.5 cup shredded mozzarella
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
1.5 cups cheddar cheese flavor french fried onions(regular work fine if you can't find the cheese ones) You can even do homemade ones if you have the time!(LINK)
1 can Cream of Celery soup (homemade recipe)
Boil Noodles according to package directions
Preheat oven to 350
If you are making it prepare your celery soup now
Slice the sausage into bite sized pieces and brown them over medium heat
Combine Soup and Milk in a 3 quart casserole, add in 1/2 of cheese and 1/2 cup French Fried onions. Add in sliced sausage and peas , combine well.
add in drained noodles and mix until well covered.
Bake in preheated oven for 20-30 until bubbly. Top with remaining onions and cheese and bake for 3-5 minutes more!
We recently decided to go gluten free for my middle son. This is the first dish I attempted.
I used gluten free pasta and homemade french fried onions and cream of celery soup(both have GF variations on the links above)
