We love to grill during the summer! It means fresher dishes, less clean up and more time outside in the sun. Today I am sharing a recipe for Smoked Sausage and Beer Mac and Cheese, which is one of our favorite summer recipes. I have my husband grill the Eckrich Smoked Sausage Links while I whip up the delicious Beer Cheese Pasta that we add the smoked sausage to! It is delicious, affordable and such a perfect summer pasta to enjoy!

How to Make Smoked Sausage and Beer Mac and Cheese
Mac and cheese is usually a dish that I think of as a side for a BBQ or as comfort food on a cold winter night. However, you can make this a summertime meal by grilling 
Eckrich Smoked Sausage Links and adding them to the pasta. It gives it a nice rich and naturally hardwood smoked flavor that makes your mouth water! 

First, you'll want to head to your local Walmart store and pick up a package of smoked sausage. I picked up the Cheddar Smoked Sausage Links, but there are also Original and JalapeƱo & Cheddar Smoked Sausage Links available.

You'll also want to pick up some other items from Walmart, if you don't already have them at home.

You'll need:
Eckrich Cheddar Smoked Sausage Links
8 oz Penne Dried Pasta
1 Cup of Beer
3 Tablespoons of Flour
2 Cups of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 Teaspoon Dry Mustard
1/2 Teaspoon Paprika

Grill your Eckrich Cheddar Smoked Sausage Links until done. Let them cool for a bit and then slice them into rounds.
