Kielbasa, Kraut & Noodles
This recipe is an adaptation of one of Michelle's brother-in-law's mother's recipes. Did you follow that? We've been wanting to try it for a while. Both of us love smoked sausage and sour kraut, so obviously, this meal was a hit with us. And, to top it off, this is super easy to make.
Here's what you need:
1 pack of Polska Kielbasa
About 1 1/2 cups of sour kraut
1/2 a bag of egg noodles
Pepper to taste
Here's what you do:
Start your water boiling to cook the egg noodles. Meanwhile, heat a high-walled skillet over medium heat. Coat the bottom of the pan with about a tablespoon of olive oil.
Once your pan is hot, place the sausage inside. We're going to crisp the sausage up whole before we slice it.
Let that cook until it's browned and the skin is crisped.
Once that's sufficiently crispy, remove from the pan and slice on the bias.
At this point, the water for our pasta was boiling, so we salted the water with Kosher salt, and drop your noodles.
Add the sliced sausage back in the pan.
Top with the sour kraut.
Let that cook while your pasta finishes cooking. Scoop the pasta into the pot.
Season with pepper and toss everything around to coat it.
Throw a lid on it and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
Now, all you have to do is give it another good stir, and plate it.
