Italian Sausage Bake

Italian Sausage Bake

By: Jill Kinsel

Just made what we call Italian Sausage Bake in the Ninja for the first time.


1 lb sweet Italian Sausage
1 medium chopped onion
1 large chopped green pepper
jar of spaghetti sauce
can of Italian style diced tomatoes
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Italian spice, as much as you would like to add
2 cups Penne noodles


On stove top high in Ninja brown sausage until really brown, rinse if you prefer, add onion and green pepper to soften for a few minutes. As these are browning cook 2 cups Penne noodles for 7 mins on your regular stove top so they are still a little stiff. Turn Ninja to crock pot low add spaghetti sauce, diced tomatoes, and noodles and any spices, stir well. Top dish with shredded cheese and cook for 20-30 mins until cheese is melted. It was really good and tasted just like when I use to cook it in the oven but a LOT easier. Enjoy!!!

Homemade Cheeseburger Macaroni Hamburger Helper

Homemade Cheeseburger Macaroni Hamburger Helper

By: Terri Bionda Jacobs

I don't like boxed or canned meals, but when they're the home made version they're pretty good, and this one's so easy!

Servings: 8 

Prep time: 10 minutes 

Cook time: 12 minutes 

Stand time: 5 minutes


1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 cup hot water
2 cups milk
1 ½ cups elbow macaroni, uncooked
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, or a blend of your favorites (plus more for topping, if desired)

Sauce "Packet"(includes the ingredients below)

1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar


1. Brown ground beef or turkey on Stove Top High. Drain. (I usually don't have to drain when using turkey)
2. Add hot water, milk, pasta and "sauce packet" ingredients.
3. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer 12 minutes or until pasta is tender.
4. In the last few minutes of cook time, add cheese, stir and re-cover.
5. When pasta is tender and cheese is melted, turn off heat and uncover.
6. Let stand about 5 minutes. Sauce will thicken as it stands. I like to add a little ground pepper at this time.
7. Top with additional cheese if you'd like.


-For a spicier flavor, use Mexican cheese blend, or add some taco seasoning.
-For a buffalo twist, add ¼ cup of buffalo or hot sauce, and substitute ¼ - ½ cup blue cheese for the cheddar.
-Add crumbled bacon, because bacon makes EVERYTHING better!
-Use mozzarella cheese and add pepperoni or sausage for a pizza spin
-Add veggies to make yourself feel like you're eating healthy comfort food

Hash Brown Casserole #2

By: Holly Briere


1/4c butter
1/2 diced onion
1 diced sweet pepper
1 pkg of frozen hash browns
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 package of Philadelphia Italian Herb cooking cream
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste


I melted 1/4c butter on stovetop medium and then cooked 1/2 diced onion and 1 diced sweet pepper for a few minutes. Then mix in 1pkg of frozen hash browns, one can of cream of chicken soup, and one package of Philadelphia Italian Herb cooking cream, salt and pepper. Switch the Ninja to Oven 300 degrees for 25 mins. Then I mixed in 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese and turned the Ninja to slow cook low until ready to serve (about 2 hours).

Hash Brown Casserole #1

Hash Brown Casserole #1

By: Connie Hamilton


1 bag shredded hash browns
1 Onion
1 can cream mushroom soup
1 16-oz sour cream with chives (in the regular oven I actually used half this amount...seemed too much. But the Ninja it was perfect)
1 stick melted butter (I am actually thinking of using a half stick next time, just as a tester)
2 cups sharp shredded cheddar cheese


Thaw hash browns.
In a large bowl mix all ingredients together (using your hands is the quickest and easiest way to get all the ingredients mixed).
Spray ninja pot with non stick cooking spray
Add all ingredients to the Ninja
Set oven to 350 (covered) for one hour.
Turn off Ninja and let sit uncovered for a few minutes to sort of gel together.

The bottom had the best crust.
My family absolutely loved it.

Regular oven recipe calls for 1 hour baking covered - another 30 to 45 minutes uncovered in order for the top to brown.

So the Ninja is the hero of the day in my house. Served this with chili I made yesterday in my Ninja!!!!!

Hamburger and Sausage Casserole!



1 lb. hamburger
1 lb. sausage
1 lg. onion
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 lg. jar pimento
1 jar sliced mushrooms
1 pkg. brown wild rice, cooked
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup


Turn the Ninja on Stovetop High. Cook the first 4 ingredients and drain off grease.
Add remaining ingredients.
Mix together and Turn to Oven, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
After 20 minutes, add 1 cup grated cheese to top.
