Servings 6 servings


  • 1 lb. macaroni pasta
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 4 cups grated medium cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 package Butterball turkey sausage diced


  1. Bring large pot of salted water to boil. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Replace pot back to medium heat. Melt butter, then whisk in flour. Cook 1 minute. Whisk in milk slowly to prevent lumps from forming. Add nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste. Cook 5 minutes over medium low heat to thicken sauce without curdling the milk.
  3. Sprinkle cheese in bit by bit until it's all incorporated into one smooth cheesy sauce.
  4. Stir in cooked pasta and Butterball turkey sausage. Warm it all through 2-3 minutes before serving. Serve hot.
