Run an executable with a passed variable using PowerShell

Hello. I have a command that I would like to run. The command requires a parameter. I have added the parameter to a text file. Using PowerShell, I know how to read the text file and output what is it in but but cannot figure out how to pass it to the executable. Below is the command and my script so far. Could anyone point me in the right direction for executing the command with the parameter using PowerShell? Thank you for any assistance.

The text file contains Windows Features that I would like to remove online using DISM. It contains items like MediaCenter, Chess, etc.

Command
DISM /online /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:<<parameter from text file>>

Script so far
$Cleanup = "E:\Features\Removal.txt"
Get-Content $Cleanup | Foreach-Object {Write-Host $_}

Here is a function in Powershell I use for SQL installs.

function sql08R2($a)
	{
	Write-Host $a
	$Installer = "R:\MS SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard\setup.exe"
	$Argus = '/Q /ConfigurationFile="R:\2008R2Conf.ini"'
	Write-Host $Argus
	Start-Process -FilePath $Installer -ArgumentList $Argus -Wait -PassThru
	Write-Host "2008 R2 Installed"
	}

Open in new window


The Start-Process is what calls the application, -wait tells the script to not move on until the install is done.
