“A macaroni casserole is always welcome in most families. Use mild sausage or bratwurst if you prefer. I like a bit of spice so I like to add a couple of jalapenos chopped and perhaps some olives or some hot sauce. Make it as hot or as mild as you like. Good meal for those fall/winter days ahead. Serve with a green salad and crusty rolls and there's your meal.”
