Guest Post: Broccoli Sausage Casserole

Friday, June 28, 2013

Hi readers! As you know, I'm on vacation (heading to Houston from Little Rock today!), so Lindsey from The Accidental Wallflower was awesome enough to stop by and share a recipe with you guys (and seriously, go check out her blog -- she's one of my faves!). -Alex

Hello GGGW readers! My name's Lindsey and I usually blog over at The Accidental Wallflower. I blog about everything from my everyday life to money saving tips to crafts. I have a lot of fun with TAW and I'd love for you to check it out!

With Alex being out of town, she asked me to put together a guest post for her. Today I'm going to share a new recipe I recently tried out, my Broccoli Sausage Casserole. This casserole is a variation of my Zucchini Casserole, which I adapted from another blogger's recipe. And if you're a parent, you'll be happy to know my one and a half year old son loved this meal. And he's kind of a picky eater, so that's saying something!

Here's what you'll need to make the casserole, which I usually serve as my main dish, but it'd work just as well on the side in smaller portions.
