Do you ever get stuck in a meal routine? I find it creeps up on me when I’m grocery shopping. I go into auto-pilot mode and place the same items into the shopping cart nearly every trip. Then I get home and realize we’re eating the same meal we had last week, and let me tell you my kids will surely bring this to my attention.

Recently I re-imagined a meal that I serve quite frequently…homemade Mac & Cheese. I prepare homemade Mac & Cheese at least 2 times a month so I decided it would be a great dish to awaken with some new flavors. To change things up, to reinvent something that we already love, but in a different way. Plus Mac & Cheese is a hearty dish and now that the weather has started to cool down, comfort food is where it’s at.

Without further ado I introduce to you: Italian Mac & Cheese! All the cheesy goodness of traditional Mac & Cheese with the added bonus of: Italian sausage, seasoned diced tomatoes and you guessed it, more cheese. When I was making this re-imagined dish I knew my family would enjoy it since it is also similar to another family favorite, lasagna.

Italian Mac & Cheese can easily be prepared for a weeknight meal. There’s nothing complicated within this recipe. We sat down and enjoyed this dish with some garlic bread and a refreshing glass of Lipton Cold Brew Iced Tea.

We’re an iced tea loving family and making Lipton iced tea is just as simple as preparing this meal. I simply filled a pitcher with cold water, added Lipton Cold Brew tea bags and waited 5 short minutes.

When dinner was served I poured the Lipton iced tea over ice and enjoyed right alongside the Italian Mac & Cheese! Doesn’t get much easier and delicious than this meal and Lipton iced tea together!
