  • 1 pound Johnsonville Italian Mild Ground Sausage
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1 (8-ounce) package macaroni pasta
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • Place sausage and onion in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Cook, breaking sausage apart with a wooden spoon, until sausage is no longer pink.
  • Add diced tomatoes, water, half-and-half, and macaroni. Cook, stirring frequently for 12 to 14 minutes.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper, keeping in mind that the cheddar cheese will add some saltiness.
  • Sprinkle cheese on top and stir until melted and mixed in. Remove from heat.
