I was looking for something simple to fix for dinner and I wanted to clear some things out of my freezer and cupboards, so I came up with this. This recipe only uses 1/2 pound of meat for 4 servings. So I would also call this economical as well. The cooking time includes the time for cooking the pasta. Posted on March 16th, 2006.
- 1 cup uncooked pasta (I like to use spiral)
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1⁄2 lb smoked sausage, thinly sliced (or you can use the same amount of chopped cooked ham)
- 1⁄4 cup chopped onion (I like to use sweet onion)
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon self-rising flour
- 2 ounces Velveeta cheese, cut into cubes
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
- Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and set aside.
- Mix together flour and milk, set aside.
- In a medium sized skillet over medium heat, add oil, sausage, and onion.
- Cook until lightly browned.
- Add pasta, milk, and Velveeta.
- Stir until cheese is melted and pasta is well coated (if at this point you want it creamier and a little more milk), add salt and pepper.
Great pasta! I used Guy Fieri's Unyawn's Smoked Cajun Style sausage, penne pasta and sharp cheddar instead of Velveeta. Quadrupled the recipe without any problems. The co-workers I made it for loved it! Thanks for sharing! ***Made for Fall PAC 2011***
this is so good I used egg noodles other than that I followed the recipe exactly, we loved it it was so easy i will make again and again thanks for posting.
A great family-pleasing meal. I tripled the recipe (for 4 sons and a husband) without a problem. I used elbow macaroni and instead of Velveeta, I used a mix of American and cheddar cheeses. My smoked sausage was Healthy Choice brand. We ate this with steamed broccoli on the side. We all loved this meal, and I'll make this again. Thanx!
