- 4 (600 g) Italian sausages, mild or spicy
- 15 mL (1 tbsp) olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 680 mL (2 ¾ cups) tomato sauce
- 450 g uncooked macaroni or other short pasta
- 30 mL (2 tbsp) butter
- 30 mL (2 tbsp) flour

DirectionsRemove the casing from the sausages. In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil on medium-high heat, add the onion and cook for 4 minutes. Add the sausage meat and cook 5 minutes while stirring. Skim off the fat if needed. Add tomato sauce, bring to a boil and let it simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large saucepan filled with boiling water.
While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter in another saucepan. Add the flour and cook one minute while stirring. Add the milk and bring to a boil. Whisk until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and add the Cheddar cheese. Stir until the cheese is melted. Add the drained pasta, season and stir.
Preheat the oven to 180 ºC (350 ºF).
Pour the sauce into a 13 x 9 inch (33x33 cm) baking dish. Cover with the macaroni and cheese. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes.
Garnish with the slices of Brie cheese and cook for 5 additional minutes. Serve right away.
