Kielbasa Pasta Casserole

Thelma S Recipe

By Thelma S islulu

Prep Time:
Cook Time:

I had several jars of spagetti sauce that I got on sale. I used 1 1/2 jars of sauce instead of the stewed tomaotes, sauce, oregano, parsley, and black pepper.
I also just put it in the oven for 30 min without doing the foil. Came out very good

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a meal in itself. It would also be a snap to prepare after a day at the office or running the kids around.  One bonus with this is that it makes your kitchen smell like a pizzeria while cooking! Kind of tastes like pizza too... Yum!

Loved it! I accidentally purchased two cans of Mexican stewed tomatoes along with 1 can of Italian...and loved the mild flavor of the Mexican. Even my meat and tater man took seconds. For two of us definitely too much, so granddaughter and her 3 sons will enjoy it too!

Kielbasa and Polish sausage were the same thing in my little Polish town where I grew up! Here's some other info:

Kiełbasa, kołbasa, klobasa, kobasa, kolbasi, kovbasa, kobasi, and kubasa are common names for a type of Central and Eastern European sausage. Synonyms include Polish sausage and Ukrainian sausage. In English, these words refer to a particular genre of sausage, common to all Central and Eastern European countries but with substantial regional variations. In the Slavic languages, these are the generic words for all types of sausage, local or foreign.

I tried this recipe and my family thought it was a bit plain and needed additional seasoning. Curious why you call it Kielbasa Pasta Casserole when you list it as polish sausage in the ingredients? Not everyone immediately identifies polish sausage and kielbasa as the same thing.

algomagirl: It appears that there are sliced sausage under the cheese layer at the front of the dish. In this type of dish, I would definitely slice them, probably about 1/2"-3/4" slices. Can be sliced before or after cooking, but I prefer to do it before cooking.

I would like to make this for supper, but doesn't really say whether to leave the sausage whole or slice them. I thank you in advance for the info.
