      Andouille Macaroni and Cheese
      8 oz wagon wheels or other small pasta shapes
      1 to 2 tsp vegetable oil
      12-16 oz andouille sausage, thinly sliced
      1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
      6-8 green onions, thinly sliced
      2 cloves garlic, finely minced
      4 tbs butter
      1/4 cup flour
      1 tsp Cajun seasoning
      1/8 tsp ground black pepper
      2 1/3 cups milk
      3 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
      Heat the oven to 350°.

      Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish.
      Cook the pasta following package directions. Drain well in a colander and rinse with hot water. Set aside.
      In a skillet over medium heat with just enough oil to coat the bottom, cook the sausage with bell pepper until lightly browned and bell pepper is softened.

      Add green onion and garlic and cook for about 2 minutes longer.
      Remove sausage mixture to a plate or bowl.
      Add the butter to the same pan and heat over medium heat until melted and frothy. Add the flour and stir until smooth. Add Cajun seasoning and pepper.

      Gradually stir in the milk and cook, stirring, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in 2 cups of the cheese and cook, stirring, until melted. Spoon into the prepared baking dish.

      Top with the remaining cheese and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until bubbly and cheese is melted. Serves 4 to 6.
