Family Favorites--Sausage, Shrimp, and a Picky Preschooler

Goodness.  My family LOVES sausage.  It's one of the only foods my tiny preschooler will eat!  This month, I paired with Allrecipes and Johnsonville to present a few recipes that your family might enjoy, too.  Well, except for Harper, my tiny girl.  She's four and has yet to grow into a diet that doesn't include chicken every day.  BUT, she does like parts of these recipes! 

Harper, Her Royal Pickiness

First, is this Johnsonville® Italian Sausage Lasagna.  It combines Italian sausage, cheeses, spinach, and tomato sauce to make this favorite--and it's fairly easy to put together.  My husband and oldest daughter loved it, the preschooler ate the sausage.  I also shared some with my boss, and he still talks about it being one of the best things he's ever eaten.  Try it--I think you'll like it too!

Next up is a hearty, rustic dish that's perfect for a chilly Fall day.  Cannellini beans are delicious, and this stew was no exception.  Cook them with carrots, celery, and onions, then top with grilled sausage for a savory & filling dinner. My preschooler LOVED this sausage!  The beans, not so much.
Here is the recipe: 
Finally, a Southern staple in my house--Shrimp & Grits with a Johnsonville flair!  While the recipe calls for Hot Italian Sausage, I substituted Chorizo and it was phenomenal.  Colorful vegetables, shrimp, and flavorful chorizo atop creamy grits made my family very happy (except my preschooler--do you sense a theme here?).  Make it for your crew by going here:  Johnsonville Sausage with Shrimp and Asiago Grits
Hope you have a delicious dinner tonight!
