Pineapple Sausage

As usual, this is both delicious, and deliciously simple :)

What You Need:
~ One can of pineapple chunks (I buy two)

~ 1 to 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch

~ Smoked beef sausage (I buy two for my family of seven, and I like Hillshire)

What You Do:
Chop sausage into bite size pieces; place in frying pan, and set on low heating. Stir occasionally until hot. Toss in pineapple chunks to heat.

For sauce~
separate pineapple and juice; save juice

pour juice in a small saucepan

heat on low setting; sprinkle in the cornstarch (if you're using two cans, then use 1 1/2 tsp. If just one can, 1 tsp should be enough)

STIR CONTINUOUSLY with a wire whisk while juice thickens; this is important, because if unattended, it gets lumpy (ew). Do this for about ten minutes. Sauce should be thicker rather than runny.

When it reaches desired consistency, it's ready to serve.

Put the sausage and chunks on a serving plate (or bowl) and drizzle sauce over.

I like to serve this with sugar snap peas or corn (on the cob), corn bread, and Pasta Roni Parmesan Cheese (flavor).
