Stuffed Italian Sausages

Hello, Hello friends!

Is it February already?  This freaks me out, the last 2 months have been 2 of the worst I have had in years, and now, to top it off I am going to be 46 at the end of the month! HOW can this be?!  I thought I was still 25.  I am just going to roll with it, you are only as old as you think you are ,right?

This recipe is not mine.  A friend of mine on YouTube posted this video and I knew I HAD to share it.  Follow the link on the video and you can find her.  She eats a keto diet and makes great food!

The night I tested this video things went a little upside down.  I was serving this with salad and pasta and I accidentally dumped an entire pot with 2 lbs of pasta (so I could freezer bank some) and boiling water down my side and on my feet.  My husband rushed me to the ER and I spent the next 5 hours getting iv pain meds, nausea meds and the drs and nurses trying to decide if I should be transferred to a burn center.  I obviously know burns are no joke but I learned when they are on your extremities, they are REALLY no joke.   You know being burned has always been one of my biggest fears.  You can't imagine unless it has happened to you the level of pain involved.  I will say, I am a stronger person, mentally and physically.  I choose to take something good from it.    I ended up coming home, thankfully but guess what had been in the oven for 5 hours at that point?!

Sad, right?  Well, that was a month ago, and my burns are finally healing, and so I was able to remake this recipe and enjoy it with my family!  So few ingredients, so easy to make and I can easily see this served alone with a salad, served on a crusty hoagie roll, or with pasta.  The recipe I am going to give you is not set in stone and easily interchangeable to your taste.  I made a double batch the second time but will give you the recipe for a single recipe!

You will need:
6 Italian Sausages (Sweet or Hot)
6 string cheeses
1 cups marinara
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Slice your sausage down one side not quite to the top or bottom.  Push your string cheese in and remold the sausage around it until the cheese is enveloped inside.  Lay in a casserole dish and proceed with the rest.  Pour over the marinara sauce and then top with cheese.  Bake for 30-35 minutes or until sausage is completely cooked.

ENJOY this SO many ways!
