Original recipe adapted from Clever Housewife and posted with permission.
The first time I tried this recipe as it was written, it was a little sweet for my tastes. So, I adapted it and hope you like my more savory version of the great and easy recipe the whole family will enjoy!
- Package of Italian sausage, (I used Johnsonville mild)
- Box of Penne Pasta (I used Barilla)
- 3 cans of Tomato soup (I used Campbell's)
- An onion
- Bag of shredded Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350c. Cook pasta according to box, until it is al dente. While pasta is on, use a large and deep saucepan to start browning the sausage. When all sides are browned, remove from pan to a plate and cut into smaller bite-size pieces. The grease from the meat, if any, has flavor so be sure not to drain it out. Keep the pan warm while doing this. Meanwhile, chop the onion and cook in warm pan, watching not to burn. When golden hues appear in onion, add sausage back to pan. Cook a couple minutes to blend the flavor. Add all 3 cans of soup to the meat. Stir well. Shut off pan and add the pasta. Mixing well and trying not to lose any out of the top. When it is mixed, add to a large dutch oven or casserole dish. Top nicely with the shredded cheddar and bake for 20 minutes. Serve with garlic bread and/or salad.
