Sausage and Mostaccioli Bake

This recipe comes from my Mom, she said it's easy and good. She was right, I've been making it ever since.

Lets get started...

List of Ingredients: mostaccioli, smoked sausage, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, milk, parsley, salt, monterey
jack & cheddar cheese

First I slice up smoked sausage into bite size pieces. Lay out slices onto a foil (easy clean up) covered jelly roll pan. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes until browned. Check after 10 minutes.

Meanwhile boil past according to package. After I take 1/2 lb out the the pound package I like to tape box and put how much remaining pasta I have in the box letting me know for the next time. If the tape is broken then I know someone has been in the pasta and I no longer have 1/2 lb. It works for me!

The next step would be to mix up soup, milk, sour cream, parsley and salt.

By now the pasta should be done. Add pasta and shredded cheeses to soup mixture.

The side touching the foil will brown more. These look perfect.

Before adding to noodle mixture I like to pat with paper towel to remove some of the fat.
Add to noodles and put all into casserole. Cover with foil and Bake.

After 30 minutes of baking check to make sure it's hot and bubbly. Now wasn't that easy!

Sausage and Mostaccioli Bake

1/2 lb mostaccioli
1 lb smoked sausage
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Cut up sausage into bite size pieces. Place slices on a foil lined jelly roll pan. Bake preheated 450 degree oven for 10-15 minutes (check after 10 minutes-the side touching the foil browns more). Transfer sausage to paper towel lined plate to drain off fat. Prepare mostaccioli according to package. Drain. In a large bowl combine soup, sour cream, milk, parsley, salt. Add mostaccioli, cheeses, and browned sausage. Mix all together and bake in a casserole dish (covered with foil) 350 for 30 minutes. Serves 4

Notes: Don't add any more than 1 cup of cheese as it will be too rich. This also can be made ahead. If making ahead and baking later add 1/4 cup more of milk.
