Creamy Macaroni and Sausage

Creamy Macaroni and Sausage

Creamy Macaroni and Sausage is my favorite meal to make. I guess it’s because it’s so easy to make, doesn’t need a lot of ingredients, and it only takes 25 minutes. 

Don’t be fooled by the word “creamy” in the title though because it doesn’t contain milk, cream, or ingredients such as that, but trust me, it’s definitely creamy!

I use to take this to work in my thermos bottle. Everyone would say, “What’s that smell?” and “Ummm, something smells so good” and of course they’d snarl their noses when I told them it was venison–the wussies. 😛

Creamy Macaroni and Sausage

Ingredients

  • 28 oz of Hunts diced roasted garlic tomatoes
  • 28 oz Hunts crushed tomatoes in puree
  • 1 lb of deer sausage (the spicier the better)
  • 2 Tbsp. of celery flakes
  • 1 Tbsp. of salt
  • 1 Tbsp. of black pepper
  • 2 cups of elbow macaroni

Instructions

  1. Crumble the deer sausage into a large frying pan and fry on medium-high heat until it’s done. Typically, about 10 minutes.
  2. While the deer sausage is frying, put two cups of elbow macaroni and the suggested amount of water in a large kettle. Cook the macaroni as directed, which is usually about 20 minutes.
  3. Once the deer sausage is done, drain it well and put it on medium-low heat. Add all of the tomatoes, celery flakes, salt, and black pepper and stir well.
  4. When the macaroni is done, drain it well and add it to the sausage and tomato mixture. Fold the macaroni in gently so you don’t rip it.

Dip some into a bowl and sprinkle it with Parmesan cheese and start smacking your lips. It goes well with garlic bread. Yummy!
