I believe casseroles are a beautiful thing. Thinking about all of the thousands of casserole recipes, I got to thinking…where did this word/dish originate? Well, I shall spare you the whole, long story behind it but in short, “casserole” originally referred to the pan in which the dish was cooked/served. Well, that was less than exciting for me. Less exciting than putting my nose to the grind and creating delicious casseroles. Truth be told, this is really more of a pasta bake, but to me it just feels like a casserole. Joe and I sort of pulled our brains together and took bits and pieces of several recipes until we think we found the perfect “casserole” and made it our own. The flavors of the turkey sausage, Rotel tomatoes and cheese just make a perfectly delicious meal that will leave you feeling quite content! This is a great go-to meal that we make often because one…we love it and two…leftovers! Two very good reasons you should give this a whirl we think! And as always, you may leave the jalapeños out if you’re not liking a bit of heat. Happy baking!
