Tomato Cream Pasta Shells

This recipe is almost identical to my Rigatoni Bake!  Everyone loved this especially Logan, he literally ate every bite.  I love making spaghetti because its good and sooo easy.  However, if you follow the blog you know I haven't been in the mood for regular spaghetti lately.  This is a quick way to spruce it up and it freezes perfectly!!

  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 1 box mini pasta shells
  • 1 jar favorite pasta sauce
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Directions:  In a large pot cook shells according to package instructions. Drain pasta and return to pot and set aside. Brown sausage over medium/high heat and add pasta sauce when cooked through.  In a small sauce pan melt butter and add flour forming a roux.  Slowly add in milk, remove from heat and whisk in cheese, onion and garlic powder until smooth.  Pour cheese sauce into pasta sauce and mix thoroughly.  Add sauce to pot with noodles and stir together and serve.  Freeze leftover in large Ziploc bag or disposable tin pan.
