Creamy Cajun Mac and Cheese

Back in the day I used to make this dish all the time. I've lightened the recipe up a bit to make it more weight watcher friendly but you'd never tell by tasting it. I love most spicy foods and love just about anything Cajun so when I first found Cajun chicken sausage at the store a few years back I decided to give it a try in this recipe and have been using it in place of smoked sausage ever since. If you like spice, then be sure to give this recipe a try!

Creamy Cajun Mac and Cheese
Serves 6
Cal 323, Fat 6, Carbs 47.8, Fiber 5, Protein 20.5

12 oz. pasta of your choice
1/2 cup non fat milk
1 tsp olive oil
2 tbsp chopped garlic
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 can rotel, drained
1 cup shredded American cheese
14 oz package Cajun chicken sausage

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute for two minutes. Add garlic and cook for an additional 30 seconds or until fragrant.

Meanwhile, boil pasta and cook until al dente.

While pasta is cooking add milk and rotel to the garlic and onion mixture. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Slowly stir in the cheese. Once melted add in sausage. Drain pasta and add to skillet. Combine well and enjoy!

Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is heated through. Enjoy!
