Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes; drain.

  • Melt butter in a separate pot over medium heat. Cook and stir sausage and onion in melted butter until the onion is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Stir tomatoes, green bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, orange bell pepper, red bell pepper, basil, thyme, and oregano into the sausage mixture; continue to cook and stir until the peppers have softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add drained macaroni; bring to a simmer and cook another 5 minutes. Pour the mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish and top with cheese cubes.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes. Stir melted cheese through the macaroni mixture, pat the mixture down into a flat layer, and continue baking until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes more.

Last night, I made it exactly like the recipe. It's all gone. The kids liked it so much, they asked me to make it again tonight. The only difference will be that I'm using a can of fire roasted tomatoes and Cajun style smoked sausage.... Gotta kick it up a notch! Read More

I made this tonight and I thought it was pretty good. I followed the recipe pretty much as stated except I used rotini pasta and omitted the green pepper. (I wanted to use a bigger noodle and I don't like green peppers). Very filling. I'll probably make it again. Read More
