If you love sausage, try some of these great recipes using Italian sausage from Johnsonville. My family enjoyed all the following recipes using
sausage. All of the recipes I tried are what my husband calls keepers.
For starters, I made the Italian Wedding Soup using the Johnsonville all
natural Italian sausage. On a cold day, the soup will warm you up. When adding orzo to the soup, remember the orzo will absorb a lot of the liquid. I made the orzo and kept it separate from the soup. When it was time to eat the soup, I added the orzo to each
bowl. I stored the left over orzo in a separate ziplock bag and a soup in a plastic container. We ate the soup for lunch the next day.

Another great recipe using Italian sausage from Johnsonville was Rigatoni a la You.
You can make this with any kind of pasta. I went shopping in my pantry and found penne pasta. This dish is made with red pepper. I bought some homemade pasta sauce from a small Italian grocery store which made the dish oh so special.

One of my family's favorite meals is pizza. I made the Johnsonville Easy Sausage Pizza.
I used 1/2 pound of sausage for each pizza I made. I like to use the Johnsonville all natural mild Italian and hot sausage and mix the two sausages for a nice blended taste. My family loves cheese and lots of toppings. To make this easier you can use a store
bought crust. I chose to make my own homemade pizza crust using All Recipes Jay's Signature Pizza Crust. Jay's Signature Pizza Crust
I made the dough the day before, prepped all the veggies and sauce. The next day, I took the pizza dough out two hours before making the pizzas.
I placed the dough in an oiled bowl and covered the bowls with a cotton towel. I then placed the dough in my oven which has a bread proofing feature. I preheated the oven to 425 degrees and precooked my pizza without the toppings for eight minutes. Then,
I added all the toppings and baked for another 15 minutes-20 minutes. Combo pizzas at my house include, sausage, pepperoni, green chili, green pepper, onion, black olives and mushrooms. The pizzas are then topped with provolone and mozzarella cheese.

I made the Indian Fry Tacos with Yeast Fry Bread Recipe. The fry bread was
delicious. I think this was my favorite of all the recipes. The dough was very easy to roll out. I tweaked the recipe and substituted Johnsonville all natural hot Italian sausage and mild sausage instead of hamburger. I also added refried beans. The recipe
servings were as large as a dinner plates. My family has hearty appetites, and no one could finish these babies. I think I would probably make the fry bread and freeze half of the dough. I would make 6 smaller fry breads out of 1/2 of the dough.
I wrote up a customized version of the Indian Fry Tacos minus the tomato sauce,tomato paste and seasonings. I really didn't need a pound of sausage.
So, the next time I make this, I will use a 1/2 pound of all hot Italian sausage. My family didn't care for the tomato sauce or tomato paste. Instead, I would use fresh tomato salsa.
