Reviews for Sausage Macaroni Skillet
"Not a fan."
"The nutritional facts need to be fixed. 1 serving may be 603 calories but this made far more than 5 cups of food. Family thought it was yummy and it was simple to throw together for a quick meal"
"Easy and delicious for a busy night. I added some zucchini to mine as I had some I needed to use. I think this would work real well with ground beef as well."
"Loved the simplicity and great outcome. I was distracted and added too much evapo milk so I put in a couple of slices of american cheese to compensate. Turned out very cheesy. I'll probably experiment with adding some other veggies, perhaps less chili sauce to cut down on sweetness a bit. Perfect recipe to make as is or tailor to suit different tastes. Thanks! :)"
"Very easy work-night meal! I used whole-wheat macaroni to add a little "healthiness" to the meal and cooked it for a couple minutes longer. I do love Italian sausage and these days, it's a bit less expensive than ground beef."
"This is a very quick, easy and tasty dish. For those of you that didn't care for the evaporated milk, you can try regular milk."
"This was delicious - I used hamburger instead of Italian sausage (only because I didn't have any sausage), and also omitted the onions. It was easy, quick and also great heated up for lunch today!"
"Such an easy, tasty recipe! The chili sauce adds such a perfect sweet taste. Also, One pan = less dishes = a very happy girl! However, I did change one thing. I am not a big fan of Italian sausage so I used ground beef and I think it still turned out delightful."
"My 14 year old daughther found this recipe in Simple and Delicious and wanted to try it. What a hit! She made it and we all loved it. This recipe is a keeper. I agree with the other reviews thinking that sweet and condensed milk as used instead of evaporated milk/"
