Macaroni & Hot Italian Sausage

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Bergy

A macaroni casserole is always welcome in most families. Use mild sausage or bratwurst if you prefer. I like a bit of spice so I like to add a couple of jalapenos chopped and perhaps some olives or some hot sauce. Make it as hot or as mild as you like. Good meal for those fall/winter days ahead. Serve with a green salad and crusty rolls and there's your meal.

This was a good recipe with ingredients we actually had (except the sherry). I substituted 1/8 cup of vinegar, 1/8 cup of water and 1/2 tbsp of sugar for the sherry and boiled it the same as sherry. It was a huge hit with my husband, 2/3 kids liked it too! Definitely need to stir it up at about half the time, and reduced the time by 15 minutes or it would have been crispy!
