This is my go to emergency meal when it’s 5 o’clock and I have no plan for dinner! Simple flavorful and the girls will always eat it. You can also make this as a quick lunch!
I always use Annie’s brand boxed organic macaroni and cheese (we like the white cheddar). Other brands will of course work, that’s just what I keep on hand. I also use our Fresh Sausage, which is only seasoned with salt and pepper, so the flavor doesn’t clash with the cheese and it’s mild enough my picky toddler will eat it!
1 Box of Macaroni and Cheese
1 pack of fresh sausage links
1 cup frozen peas
Put a small pot of water on to boil for the mac n cheese. Add pasta when it boils.
Cook the sausages in a frying pan on medium low until fully cooked (you can cut one open to make sure there is no pink left) once they are fully cooked cut the sausage into small rounds and set aside.
Just before the pasta is done add the frozen peas to the water for the last few minutes to heat. Drain and add cheese based on package instructions.
Mix the sausage into the macaroni, cheese and peas
Serve and enjoy an easy night! (at least when it comes to dinner)
