Creamy Sausage Mac 'n Cheese

This was a super easy thing to throw together. And it tastes sooo much better than boxed macaroni!


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lb smoked turkey sausage, sliced
1 tablespoons minced garlic
1 cup diced onions
2 cups chicken broth (may need to add a tad more or less depending on the size of your noodles)
1 can diced tomatoes (optional, we don't like tomatoes so I didn't add this)
1/2 cup heavy cream (use fat free milk to cut down on calories)
8 oz dry pasta, any shape bowtie, twirls ect.
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup chopped green onions

1. Heat olive oil over medium/high heat. Sautee onions and sausage until lightly browned. Add in garlic and cook for 1 minute, make sure not to overcook the garlic.

2. Add chicken broth, noodles, seasonings, cream (and tomatoes if you wish). Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until noodles are tender.

3. Remove from heat and add shredded cheese. Top with green onions.
