The sausage is amazing, however, we did not like the mac and cheese. It tasted like the kind we used to get in school!


Oh wow! Butterball doesn't mess around when it comes to recipes. I loved it! Would definately suggest you try it. The only change I would suggest is a mix of cheddars in place of the sharp cheddar and reduce the velveeta to 2 cups instead of 3, and using 2 jars of Alfredo sauce instead of all the velveeta. The velveeta really covered those great complex cheese flavors. The corkscrew pasta was a wonderful touch!


This was really good. I made a lot of changes, but did use the Butterball Smoked Turkey Sausage, as I believe it is that part that really counts. I omitted the Alfredo and cheese product and made a roux and added in shredded cheddar. I then added in the pasta/sausage and proceeded as directed. This was a great lunch and my daughter and I chowed down and literally took comfort in this amazing meal. Thanks, Butterball!
