I’m not sure what it is about smoked sausage, mushrooms and cheese, but when you combine them in this pasta they become absolutely magical, I think! This past week was a rough one. I was a bit under the weather, Bart was traveling and Sam was buried in homework every night. Time got away from me as I was helping him study for his Biology test and I realized I hadn’t started supper a whole lot later than I normally would have.
I pulled out the ingredients from the refrigerator and pantry to make this quick and easy favorite, which made me feel a whole lot better about my mothering abilities! 🙂
