“Kids love this recipe! What could be better than pizza and mac 'n' cheese all in one meal? Toppings are easily changed to suit individual tastes. To simplify things, use a can of pizza sauce instead of the tomato sauce, oregano and basil.” Jenny Staniec - Oak Grove, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 1 package (7-1/4 ounces) macaroni and cheese dinner mix
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. Prepare macaroni and cheese according to package directions; stir in eggs. Spread onto a greased 12-in. pizza pan. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the tomato sauce, basil and oregano. Spread over macaroni mixture. Layer with sausage mixture, mushrooms and cheese. Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

    Kids loved! Fun. Must admit. I cheated and skipped sausage prep. Used pepperoni instead. Next time may try salsa and pepper jack cheese.

    I was a little hesitant to make this(especially when I saw my husbands face after I told him about the recipe). But the kids (2 and 4) really liked it and my husband did eat 2 pieces too. I will only make it again for a kids party or something..not really an adult dish. I didnt add the onion cause my daughter doesnt like them, or the sausage but only because I dropped the whole plate of it on the floor:((.

    My son LOVES Mac and Cheese. I made this for him and he loved it! As a tip: depending on the italian sausage it could get a little spicy for children, so you could use ground up pork or ground up hamburger and add italian seasonings instead.
