Macaroni Medley

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Patti-atti

This is a delicious twist on Mac n' Cheese that has a full flavour - it's a crowd pleaser, to say the least! This recipe gets gobbled up so fast - you may not even have leftovers - which is too bad, because it's even better the next day!

I made this recipe on 4/4/09 for the "This Little Piggy Went To Market "Event in the Cooking Photos Forum, and for mine and SO's dinner.For the sausage I used Recipe#178446. One change had to be made to the recipe, provolone was used instead parmesan. ( That is what I had on hand )I didn't have any fresh parsley, so I just sprinkled in a good amount of dry.After combining all the ingredients, I did a taste test and found that it needed to be " perked up " some.So, I added a bit of crushed red pepper flakes.Instead of putting this in a 1 1/2 quart baking dish, (which would have been way too small to hold it all )I placed some in the 1 1/2 quart dish, and the rest of it went into a freezer safe dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes to give it a golden color. This was very good,and will be making again. Thanks for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)"
