Quick Mac Dinner

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • ¼ of a cooked Polish sausage, sliced
  • ¼ of a medium onion, chopped
  • ½ of a green pepper, cut in ½ inch pieces
  • 1 14.5 oz. can of stewed tomatoes, in the Italian style with basil, garlic and oregano (add seasoning if using plain tomatoes)
  • 1 cup of frozen corn
  • 2 teaspoons of paparika
  • 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup of water
  • 1 box of Mac and cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of butter

Directions

Bring salted water (1 ½ qt. of water) to a boil in a 2 qt. sauce pan. Melt the tablespoon of butter in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Slice the Polish sausage and add to the pan. Chop the onion and green pepper and add to the pan. Stir and cook until the onion is tender. Stir in the frozen corn. Continue to stir and cook until the corn has thawed. Add the can of tomatoes and the liquid. Add the seasonings and the ¼ cup of water, stir well and cover the pan. Reduce the heat to medium low. Simmer for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to develop. Remove lid and continue to simmer until the liquid has reduced a bit.

After the macaroni has cooked, remove from heat and drain. Return to the pan and stir in 1 tablespoon of butter and the powdered cheese. Mix well.

Add the meat and tomato mixture to the macaroni and stir to blend. Cover the pan and sit over very low heat until ready to serve. Stir about every 5 minutes to keep it from burning.
