sausage macaroni  baked (3)If you want to innovate your macaroni, why not add your favorite sausage in it. Here’s one recipe that is easy to prepare whenever you want a variation from your usual pasta spaghetti.

We had some spare cooked macaroni inside the refrigerator from a recent meal – some was made into macaroni salad. And there was a favorite sausage leftover as well – so the idea to cook sausage macaroni came up. It is a simple idea, but mix and matching what you have inside your refrigerator can save you throwing soiled leftovers.

Too bad, I wasn’t able to take exact measurements of the ingredients. All I wanted that time was a speedy cooking – not wanting to spend much time in the kitchen. Good thing I was able to shoot some images at the time of cooking and serving. Anyway, you can make your own sausage macaroni depending on how you feel like or what exact amount of ingredients do you prefer according to taste. I’m sure every one of us who regularly cooks at home at some point prepares the meal without any measurement.

Ingredients:

  • Cooked macaroni
  • Cooked Sausage, sliced or diced
