Mac and Queso

Oh no!  Not Mac and Cheese again.   Here is a variation that might just get your family excited.  With a few simple ingredients, we had around the house turned this into a nice wow dish.

1 lb       hot breakfast sausage
1 cup    sweet pepper slices
2 cups  pasta
1 can   diced tomatoes with green chilies
1/2 package processed cheese loaf
1 tsp    garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground hot peppers
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Brown the sausage in s skillet.  Remove the sausage leaving any drippings in the pan.  Add the sweet pepper slices to the skillet and saute until soft, stirring frequently.  Add the tomatoes and spices along with the sausage.  Slice the cheese and add to the pan.  Stir to keep the cheese from burning.  Place the cooked pasta into a casserole dish and add the cheese mixture.  Combine and place into a preheated oven at 350 degrees.  Bake  for about 20 minutes and then broil on high for an additional 3 to give the top a browned coating.

Serve and enjoy!
