Quick and Easy Keilbasa Pasta Bake
I have always had a love affair with polska keilbasa, bratwurst, or really any kind of specialty sausages, aside from your basic breakfast sausage. However my recipes for these seem to be stagnant. I find I am always using the same old recipes for them. Polska Keilbasa for instance is always a Roasted Rosemary and Keilbasa Casserole. I had always smelled it or been invited to dinner when my Aunt Mary made it. So once I got married eons ago, it became a quickie go to recipe in those early days, and I never knew what else to make with it. That is until I started searching and found this recipe for Polish Noodle Casserole from the go meat website aka Hillshire Farm.
So, do you have a favorite recipe using a special (polska keilbasa, bratwurst, chorizo, liguisa, etc...) kind of sausage? If you do, why not send it to me and if I try it and like it, I'll post it with a link back to your site. I'm desperate here people!
Eight simple ingredients. So simple yet so satisfying. This one's a keeper.
A quick, easy, and inexpensive meal.
Polish Noodle Casserole
Slightly Adapted from Hillshire Farm
1 pkg. Polska Kielbasa
2 cups sour cream
½ cup chicken broth
¼ cup chopped onion
½ teaspoon dry mustard (Coleman's-little yellow tin)
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
8 ounces uncooked egg noodles, cooked according to package directions
2 cups frozen baby peas, thawed
½ cup (2 ounces) grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut sausage into ¼” slices; set aside. In large bowl, combine sour cream, chicken broth, onion, ground mustard, salt and pepper, mixing until smooth.
Fold in sausage, cooked noodles and baby peas. Pour mixture into a greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Cover and bake 25 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese and bake 5-10 minutes longer or until heated through.
Makes 6 Servings
If your stuck for something other than Roasted Rosemary Potatoes and Keilbasa, give this a try. It won't disapoint. Quick and easy comfort on a plate.
This was the post I was trying to get finished on Thurday when Blogger decided to go down for maintenance for hours. So I gave up. Then on Friday I was out all day. So it is finally done two days later. Thanks Blogger, hope you don't make a habit of it.
