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.
