The proof of a great recipe an empty dish!

The proof of a great recipe an empty dish!

When is a sausage casserole not a sausage casserole? When it is a sausage casserole pasta bake!

Sausages are a firm favourite here and with BBQ weather pretty much here no doubt they will feature in most family most weeks. I like them in salad too, I love this recipe for sizzling sausage salad which is popular here with all of us, even my not so keen on salad husband!

I was asked to do my take on the Schwartz sausage casserole recipe using Schwartz sausage casserole recipe mix. I scratched my head and had a think. Yes I could vary the vegetables, I could have added bacon and beans, I could have topped it with mashed root vegetables or sliced new potatoes and made a sausage casserole hot pot. But instead I thought lets transform a family favourite of sausage casserole into a pasta bake and it worked SO well!

Mmmm…..

So here is my recipe for:

Schwartz Sausage Casserole Pasta Bake

This went down so well with my family. As it contains gluten I could not eat it, but the sauce using the Schwartz mix got the massive thumbs up here. I like the fact the mix contains no artificial flavours and concentrates on what Schwartz is famous for, good quality flavours that work well together.
