This recipe is definitely a family favorite. The reader and her daughter invented it 10 years ago because they loves cheese. Now it is the family's favorite meal. It is very easy, and if you like cheese, you'll love this.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Remove sausage from casings. Place a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat; cook sausage until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well; set aside. Wipe drippings from pan with a paper towel.

Step 3

Melt butter in pan over medium heat. Add flour; stir with a whisk. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Cook until thick (about 8 minutes); remove from heat. Combine sauce, sausage, pasta, Parmesan, and salt in a large bowl. Spoon mixture into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

i have been making this for years, and it's very good, and easy.   can put half in freezer for a future dinner, or to have on hand to give to friends when a dish is needed.  haven't added extras but maybe i'll try next time.

Great recipe! Typo in it though, I don't think there is any milk that is "1% skim"?

I love, love, LOVE this recipe! It's really easy to make a ton and keep it for leftovers later. I always add mushrooms, garlic and baby spinach to give it some extra nutrition.

Delicious, and really no complaints - wonderfully indulgent from the creaminess of the two cheeses and the milk sauce. I like the other rater's suggestion to add red pepper and garlic, since the dish could easily accommodate extra flavors or spices. I think wilted spinach would be yummy in the dish too.

I have made this recipe several times and have always enjoyed it. Last night I added roasted red pepper and garlic and it was amazing! A very versatile dish that you could tailor to anyone's taste.
