Ukrainian Sausage Noodle Casserole

Total Time
1hr 20mins
Prep 20 mins
Cook 1 hr

Make the casserole ahead of time except for baking it, leave in fridge and pop in oven 45 minutes before dinner. I threw this together last night and rather liked it so thought I would post it, Freezes well Make it as hot or as mild as you like. I found 2 tablespoons of hot sauce was just right but I moderated it to 2 tsp cause I know only some like it hot! Even with 2 tbsp I didn't find it too hot .Serve with a green salad and a crispy roll

This was a very interesting recipe, and I liked how it could be used to use up extra items in the fridge. I couldn't find any Ukrainian sausage, but on Bergy's advice, used some sliced kielbasa (smoked sausage) with some extra garlic and red pepper added. I did use red habanero sauce as my hot sauce, and it was nicely spicy, but not too hot. I found it interesting that this had a Cajun type of flavor overall, that reminded me in some ways of Jambalaya. We quite enjoyed this! Thanks for posting!

This was very easy to make. I added the noodles in with the sausage and it tasted very good. I would will add cabbage next time I make this. Thanks for another good recipe Bergy.
