Macaroni Sausage Supper Recipe

Macaroni Sausage Supper Recipe

Joyce Clauson and her husband chase winter’s chill in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin with this hearty and delicious casserole that’s been a family favorite for decades. TIP: “Sometimes I add a few fresh mushrooms or substitute cream of celery soup and a stalk of diced celery for extra flavor and nutrition,” Joyce says. She heats up leftover soup for lunch next day.
