Gut Buster Mac N Cheese Plus

The recipe came about because I was just feeling lazy and didn't want to put much thought into dinner so I told my sister that I had gotten out a roll of breakfast sausage to thaw for the following nights dinner and was just gonna brown it up and toss it in with some mac n cheese (something my family rarely eats anymore). She suggested the broccoli and tomatoes and that got me thinking. I made a casserole out of it. It turned out so good I had to have seconds even though I didn't really need them and thats how I came up with the name (cuz my stomach felt like busting open after I was done.) I used sage flavored sausage but you could use any flavor you like. Spicy might by fun to try if my kids weren't afraid of heat. BTW, the kids loved it and I didn't even have to harp on them about eating all of their veggies, which always makes mealtime easier!
