Cheesy Sausage, Broccoli and Mushroom Casserole

Sometimes when I think of the word "Casserole" I get a little anxious and unsure. I guess it's because it's what you always picture at a church potluck or funeral, but maybe that's just me! Anyway, I really did love this particular casserole for several reasons. It's a super easy meal that can literally be thrown together in 30 minutes and it also has your meat, noodles, vegetables and sauce all thrown into one container! It's definitely not fancy, but it's hearty, warm and flavorful and also very versatile depending on the kinds of vegetables you like. Oh, and it feeds a LOT of people - around 8-10 if you have a couple of other sides. Or you can serve it to 4 or 5 and then eat it for lunch over the next couple of days! Anything to get out of the old sandwich routine. :)

  • 1 jar (16 oz.) Alfredo sauce (I love Classico brand, but anything works)
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 pound sweet Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 package (9 oz.) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
  • 8 oz. diced mushrooms
  • 1 red pepper, finely diced
  • 8 oz. egg noodles, cooked and drained
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine Alfredo sauce and milk until smooth. Stir in sausage, broccoli, mushrooms, red pepper and noodles. Pour into a 9x13 baking dish and spread mixture evenly into pan. Sprinkle with cheese, cover with aluminum foil and bake 30 minutes or until heated through.
