Lately, I have been sharing my favorite easy recipes with you. I’ll continue to do so because I am realizing that some of my made up, crazy recipes might work for your family too! And, they are delicious, if I do say so myself!
A few years ago I had a super busy day with three little ones, no meat thawed out for dinner and no idea what I was going to feed my hungry brood. I stood staring in the refrigerator wishing I had defrosted something. And then I went to my freezer and I realized that the Johnsonville Sausage I had would defrost fast and would be a great meal.
But I wanted to do more than just slice it up and heat it up. I wanted to make a meal!
I dug around my cabinet trying to find a way to jazz the sausage up and I came across a can of Beef Consume soup. And it was on. Within minutes I had create a super Easy Sausage and Noodles Recipe!
I have made it since and my kids absolutely love it! But now that we are trying to eat healthier, I have been looking for ways to health it up. I can change the noodles out easily and use whole wheat ones. And they have these great ‘smart’ noodles now that are lower in fat and cholesterol too.
But I needed a delicious and healthy sausage alternative as well. I have used the ‘light’ sausages and they just don’t hold the flavor I need them to! But now I have the perfect solution!
New Johnsonville Chicken Sausage! With 50% less fat, it was a great choice for this dish!
Easy Chicken and Sausage Recipe
1 Pound of Johnsonville Chicken Sausage, sliced
1 bag of Smart or Whole Wheat noodles
1 can of Beef Consume soup
Cornstarch and water for gravy thickening
Boil water and add the noodles. Slice the sausage and onions and throw them in the skillet after spraying it with cooking spray. While the noodles cook, slightly brown the sausage and soften the onions. Add a can of Beef Consume soup and about a half a can of water. Let mixture come to a boil. Meanwhile, add a tablespoon or so of Cornstarch to a bowl and add water to make a thin liquid. Slowly pour the cornstarch liquid into the skillet – stirring quickly to avoid clumping. Bring back to a boil and then turn the heat off. The gravy will thicken as it cools down.
Drain the noodles. Pile them up, top with the sausage mixture and enjoy.
You can leave the onions in or out. No extras needed! My kids LOVE this dish and they clean their plates.
The entire line of Johnsonville Sausage is delicious and found in your local grocery store! Get more awesome recipes and coupons on their Facebook Page, too! And tweet what you make to @JVilleKitchens!
