Johnsonville Sausage Recipes & Review

I received coupons from Johnsonville & She Speaks to try Johnsonville Italian Sausage for FREE.  I used my coupons to purchase Johnsonville ground mild Italian Sausage. 

First, I pre-cooked all of the sausage:

After cooking all of the sausage, I pre-portioned it into freezer bags and then put them in the freezer.  Now I have pre-cooked sausage ready for a quick meal or pizza topping! 
Here are 2 of the recipes I made with Johnsonville Italian Sausage:

Crockpot Lasagna
  • 1lb. cooked Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage
  • 1lb. cooked ground Beef
  • 2 (15oz.) + 1 (8oz.) cans Tomato Sauce
  • 1 cup Water
  • 2 packages Spaghetti Sauce Seasoning
  • 1 package uncooked Lasagna Noodles (I use whole wheat noodles.)
  • 24oz. Cottage Cheese (Ricotta Cheese will also work.)
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese
Combine Tomato Sauce, Water & Seasoning Mix in a large bowl. Add the cooked meat to the sauce (this will be thin but the sauce will thicken in the crockpot as the noodles absorb the liquid). In another bowl, mix Cottage Cheese, Sour Cream, Parmesan Cheese & 2 cups Mozzarella cheese.

Spread a layer of the sauce in the bottom of the crockpot. Add a layer of uncooked noodles (break them to fit in the crockpot). Top noodles with a layer of the cheese mixture. Repeat layers 3 times. Top with remaining sauce and remaining 1/2 cup of Mozzarella Cheese.

Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until noodles are soft.

Creamy Sausage & Pasta Bake
  • 1lb. Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage
  • 1/2 cup each chopped Onions & Green Peppers (optional)
  • 24oz. Spaghetti Sauce (homemade or store bought)
  • 1 tub Philadelphia Italian Cheese & Herb Cooking Creme
  • 2 cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  •  3 cups cooked Pasta (I used Bowtie but any kind of pasta will work.)

Brown meat with the vegetables (optional) in a skillet. Stir in spaghetti sauce, 3/4 cup cooking creme & 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Cook & stir 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Add pasta mix lightly. Spoon into 9x13 baking dish and top with the remaining cooking creme and mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
