Sausage Mac and Cheese

4 servings (serving size: about 1 1/4 cups) - I doubled this recipe when I made it - we eat alot. It was too much, but I don't think it would have been enough as written


4 ounces chicken and sun-dried tomato sausage, chopped
1 1/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup (about 1 1/3 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup (2 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
5 cups hot cooked elbow macaroni (about 8 ounces uncooked pasta)

1 bag baby spinach


1. Heat a large nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat. Add sausage; sauté 4 minutes or until browned.

2. Combine milk and flour in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

3. Add milk mixture to pan; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium.

4. Stir in cheeses, onion powder, and garlic salt; cook 3 minutes or until cheeses melt, stirring constantly. Stir in pasta. Stir in spinach. Serve immediately.

  1. Made it with gf noodles, doubled the sausage and noodles and kept everything else the same ... great!
