This Sausage, Mac and Cheese Skillet recipe is an easy meal to throw together on a busy day and it’s good, too! This is a great way to get children to eat peas. It will keep in the fridge for several days. Just add a little milk, stir and reheat either in the microwave or on the stove. We love this meal with my Sour Cream Cornbread Muffins.

1 (14 ounce) package smoked or polish sausage, sliced in rounds
4 tablespoons butter or 1/4 cup or 1/2 stick
1 small green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green onion (can use regular onion)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 1/2 cups macaroni, uncooked
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt, more or less
1 cup frozen peas (could use fresh or canned)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup milk

Melt butter in a large skillet and add sausage rounds, green pepper, onion and garlic. Brown ingredients. Add chicken broth, uncooked macaroni, pepper, salt and peas. Turn heat to low and cook, uncovered, 10 minutes or until pasta is tender and peas are cooked. Add the milk and cheese. Mix well and turn heat to warm. Let cheese melt. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy!
