    If you are looking for a well rounded and easy to make family
meal, you are in the right place. This recipe has it all going for it. 
It is quick to assemble and can even be put together ahead of time.  It has all of the major food groups baked right in. It has enough cheese and sausage to make the whole family love it.  So go ahead and whip one up for your dinner tonight!

    Finding easy dinners that the whole family loves can really be a challenge sometimes.  Especially while maintaining our busy
schedules.

    Even though we haven’t been leaving home much lately, the
clock still seems to be ticking down each evening.  So having some
easy options in your recipe box that can deliver a tasty meal without a ton of work is always a good thing.

    This recipe is made from ingredients that are easy to keep on hand.  We almost always have a bag or two of egg noodles
in the pantry.

    In a pinch you could even use another shape of pasta.  Shells would be fun or rotini would work great as well.

    We also always have frozen broccoli in the freezer.  I know that it seems to be one of those vegetables people love to hate, but my family loves to love it… especially if there is cheese involved!

    If you don’t have chicken stock, don’t despair. Using water and bouillon works well, or even better get yourself a jar of chicken soup base.

    Pork kielbasa is such a great addition to any meal.  It adds so much flavor and keeps well.  

    So you can pick a couple up to have on hand for easy
meals like my kielbasa, pierogi and brussels sprouts sheet pan dinner. It’s fabulous in a good low country shrimp boil or
Jambalaya too!

    With all of these favorite ingredients coming together in one comforting casserole, there is no way it won’t be good.  So if these items aren’t already on your grocery list or in your pantry, get to changing that now!

Make ahead instructions

If you know you are going to have a busy evening, feel free to assemble this recipe ahead of time.  Get it all together to the point where you would put it in the oven, then cover and refrigerate it.

When it is time to get it in the oven, just place the casserole dish on the counter while the oven preheats. This will give it a chance to take a little of the chill off before it bakes.

Then just add five to ten minutes to the bake time.  It won’t take too
much longer.  Just make sure the sauce is bubbly and the cheese is all melted and you should be good to go!

Buying Pork Supports Family Farms

Over the years, the ways farmers raise pigs has changed significantly.
The technology, economics and an expanding scientific knowledge base have altered the standards of caring for the animals.

Throughout the waves of change, one thing has remained the same for farmers, their pursuit to raise safe and nutritious food in a responsible manner. After all, their livelihoods are tied to the land and animals in their care.

Raising healthy pigs and using good farming practices results in better outcomes for both the farmer and the consumer. So it is a winning proposition for everyone.

So whether you buy your meat from the local butcher shop or your
favorite grocery store, you are supporting farm families. You can learn more at porkcares.org.

More Easy and Yummy Pork Dinner Ideas

If comforting, cheesy casseroles are a hit with your family, make sure you get the cheesy potato and pork chop bake on your menu.  It is another filling and delicious meal that doesn’t take a ton of effort to put together. 

For another all in one meal, check out the pork tenderloin sheet pan supper.  It has the potatoes, veggies and meat all on one pan for big flavor and easy clean up.

When cooking for a crowd, we usually turn to pulled pork.  Even if you don’t have a smoker, there are great ways to make pulled pork indoors.  Don’t despair if you have a ton of leftovers, I have so many yummy ways to use leftover pulled pork that you will start making it just for the leftovers!
