Calico Casserole

Not really knowing what to cook today and time drawing near for my sweetie to come in from work, I decided a casserole was just the thing. But what kind of casserole?

Perusing the refrigerator, I spied a roll of ground turkey breakfast sausage. Now that the star of the casserole was decided, I began pulling things out of the pantry to start creating dinner. It may not look gourmet, but let me tell tasted pretty scrumptious!

1-lb. roll ground turkey breakfast sausage
1 box macaroni & cheese with cheese sauce (not powder mix) 
1 family size can ranch style beans (1/2 of the juice drained) 
1 10-oz can ro-tel 
1 10.75-oz can cream of chicken soup 
1/2 of a 9-oz can Fritos jalapeno cheddar dip 

Prepare macaroni noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside. Do not stir in cheese yet. 

In a skillet, crumble and cook sausage until no longer pink. Drain fat. 

In a 9x13 oval casserole, combine cooked sausage, cooked & drained macaroni noodles, soup and ro-tel. Stir to mix. Squeeze cheese sauce into casserole and stir. Stir in beans and jalapeno cheese dip until well combined. Bake in a 350* oven for 20 minutes or until all ingredients are hot and bubbly.
