This Farmers Sausage Macaroni and Cheese is something I came up last weekend. I was craving some good old comfort food and merged my favorite sausage with a box of macaroni and cheese. 

Yes, I said it a box of macaroni and cheese. Now I don’t typically share recipes where I use boxed macaroni and cheese however for this recipe I wanted to. I also added 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to make it more cheesy.

I think this recipe will be great for those who want something quick and do like the boxed macaroni and cheese. The kids will definitely like this one I am sure.
