  1. I made this for supper using leftover grilled sausage and it turned out great.

  2. Can you tell me when the garlic is added? There is nothing in the directions on when to add the garlic.

      Thank you Carrie for bringing this to my attention. The recipe has been updated. Add garlic when you brown the sausage in butter.

  3. I did not like it with velveeta. It probably would have been ok made with cheddar.

  4. I love making this for my grandkids. It’s one way for them to get their vegetables 🙂

  5. Gonna make this, only use peas and carrots for the veggies. Love easy pasta dishes like this! The sausage is on my grocery list. I have everything else! 🙂

  6. Hi,
    Was wondering if you have a recipe for making molasses didn’t like the taste on store bought.

  7. I’m perplexed…you don’t drain any of the liquid off? How does this thicken up…when the cheese is added?

    I fixed this dish for my hubby who just got out of the hospital a week ago figuring it was comfort food plus! (I used turkey sausage, medium shells, and a steam bag of veggies) He LOVED it and said I could fix it every week . Served it with your Corn Fritters and they were a BIG HIT as well, even with my 6 yr old granddaughter who promptly asked for the recipe to take home to her mama! Thank you so much.

  9. I made this tonight for my family and it was delicious, easy and everybody was happy!
