Spinach Noodle Casserole

As I've said before, I hate to waste food. I had some sausage & onion mixture leftover from making the Spinach Sausage Cups, so I decided to use it in a casserole. I also had a package of chicken & broccoli flavored noodle mix that was expiring soon. Everything combined to make a really good casserole.


Spinach Noodle Casserole

1 pkg Noodles & Sauce - Chicken & Broccoli Flavor
1 cup sausage & onion mixture (seasoned with garlic, pepper, browned & drained)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup chicken broth
Frozen Spinach - 10 oz pkg, thawed and drained
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Monterrey jack cheese
1/2 cup bacon bits
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil in bottom of an oval baking dish. Place noddle mixture in microwave-safe bowl. Add just enough water to cover noodles. Microwave for 8 minutes on high. Remove, stir, and put in baking dish. In large bowl, combine spinach, cream of mushroom soup, cheeses, bacon bits, flax seed & salt. Mix well & spoon on top of noodle mixture. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly around edges & browned on top.
