DIRECTIONS

  • Cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, brown sausage in a skillet and drain. (I skipped this step since I was using fully cooked turkey smoked sausage and wouldn't have any fat to render).
  • In a large bowl, combine milk and soup.
  • Stir in 1/2 cup onions, 1/4 cup of each cheese, and sausage.
  • Drain pasta and stir into sausage mixture.
  • Transfer to a greased 13 x 9 baking dish.
  • Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.
  • Sprinkle with remaining onions and cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, 3-5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
