Smoked Sausage Casserole

This recipe is definitely easy enough for a Monday.

My week always tends to start a little slow. The weekend goes by so fast and then monday rolls around. 9 times out of 10,  I usually forget to take something out of the freezer the night before so dinner has to be something easy. I made up this recipe, based on items that I normally keep in my freezer. I’m sure there are other variations out there, however…this one works for my family and they absolutely love it!!! For instance, you could substitute carrots for peas, or add mushrooms and sauteed onions, etc. Also, I use evaporated milk instead of regular milk as it seems to make the casserole a little more creamier, however if you only have regular milk, that works just fine.

Tonight, I served it only with canned biscuits and honey. Everyone went to bed with a full happy tummy!!!

Smoked Sausage Casserole

  • 1 pkg Smoked Sausage
  • 1 can Cream of Celery
  • 1/2 - 1 cup frozen peas (depending on your taste)
  • 1 1/2 cups Evaporated Milk ( you can use regular milk)
  • 2 cups Pasta (I prefer Penne or Ziti)
  • 1 Cup Italian Shredded Cheese, divided (or Mozzarella)
  • 1 Cup Sharp Cheddar
  • 1/2 Cup French-fried onions


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slice sausage and cook in large skillet. Boil pasta til done and drain. Boil peas till done. Spray sides of casserole dish with non stick cooking spray. Add  cooked pasta, cream of celery, milk, and cheese (save 1/2 cup of Italian cheese). Stir. Then add sausage and peas. Stir. Top casserole with remaining Italian Cheese. Cover with foil ( I normally spray mine with non stick spray so that it doesn’t stick to the cheese) Bake on top rack for 30 minutes. Uncover and top with French friend onions, bake for additional10 minutes.

Allow to cool for 10 mintes before serving.

G’Day! Blogs,
Interesting Thoughts, A casserole is just one of the heartiest foods you can make. There are the majority of solutions you can make a casserole. Some of the leading casseroles have beef, vegetables and potatoes. It is a effective way to merge veggies and meat to make the prime casseroles.
BTW great blogpost
