Ukrainian Sausage Noodle Casserole

"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"

  1. 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!
  2. 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.


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
