This was a huge hit with the family! Instead of hamburger macaroni thing, it was sausage bean thing. We did agree that it wanted starch underneath - i think rice, they think macaroni but i tremendously dislike beans & macaroni in the same dish and since I;m the cook....heh heh heh, I doubled this using bulk sausage - 1 sweet, 1 hot. NO LEFTOVERS. Another reason to serve it over rice! (there's only 4 of us!) Delicious & simple. Thank you! Made for PAC Spring '12.
