Italian Chicken Sausage over Fettucine

I love Italian food! This recipe has plenty of flavor from the PomodoroĀ Fresco sauce and the chicken sausage alone! I added green pepper and onions…found those in the fridge, and I found the chicken sausage in my freezer. I always keep some kind of italian sauce in my pantry (in case Josh has to cook for himself when I’m not home) and I always have seasonings and other “flavor” added items. This dish was very flavorful with a lil kick to it and we both truly said that this was gonna become a favorite! Please enjoy this recipe and let me know what you think! šŸ™‚

Country Mornin’ Casserole

I have had the achy flu for the past couple of days…Yuck!Ā but I made this breakfast casserole over this past weekend and it was a hit! I changed a few things (of course ;)) but it was definitely good! I added salsa at the end to spread on the top right before serving (no picture). This asks for 1/2 pound of country sausage and I decided that I’m gonna try and use a full pound next time and mix everything together before placing it in the oven rather than layering it…but either way…this was very fulfilling and I was asked to make it again. I hope you all had a wonderful New Years! Please enjoy this recipe!

**You can also prepare this and refrigerate it the night before and take it out of the refrigerator 15 minutesĀ prior toĀ baking.
