Day 188, 2010

The good thing about having Monday off? It's Wednesday already! Woooohooo! We are having a serious heatwave here. (I know you folks in Vegas are whining for me, right!? ;0) Anyway, for today's photo I am posting a pic I took of last night's dinner, we had too much heat and too many mosquitos to cook outside, so I made one of my kids favorites.. it may not look like much, but they love it!

Baked Penne & Smoked Sausage

1 16-oz pkg smoked sausage
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1-1/2 C Milk
4 C cooked penne pasta
1 C Shredded Mozzarella cheese (I use more like 16 oz... we love cheese!)
1 can french fried onions (the kind you use in green bean casserole)
1 C frozen peas
just a dash of Garlic powder
just a dash Onion powder
Pepper to taste... (note don't add salt. The sausage is very salty, you may want to salt portions individually)

Heat oven to 350. Cut sausage into 1/4" slies and brown in skilled, drain

Combine soup and milk in 3 qt casserole dish. Stir in cooked pasta, sausage, 1/2 of the cheese, onion powder, garlic powder and 1/2 of the french fried onions and peas

Bake 30 minutes until hot; stir. Top with remaining cheese and onions, bake 5-10 more minutes until golden. Serve, eat, then find a spot on the couch and unbutton the top button of your jeans... it's filling! LOL
