OK, pay attention!!! This is just about the best recipe I have found in a long time. I made it a few weeks ago but lost the photos so, alas, I had to make it again.
And not is it divinely delicious, it's a super-easy one-pot meal. Make a green salad for a complete meal.
NOTE: The original recipe calls for Rotel tomatoes with green chiles which are a bit too spicy for me. I used a can of petite-diced tomato. Perfection!
SPICY (or not) SAUSAGE PASTA (4 servings)
1 Tbsp EVOO
1 lb smoked sausage (I used turkey)
1 1/2 cups diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups lo-sodium chicken broth
1 (10 oz) can Rotel tomatoes and green chiles, mild, or 1 can (14.5 oz) petite-diced tomatoes
1/2 cup regular or heavy cream
8 oz penne pasta
1/2 tsp each S&P
1 cup Jack cheese, shredded
1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions
Add olive oil to oven-safe skillet over medium heat until just smoking. Add sausage and onions and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until just fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add broth, tomatoes, cream, pasta, and S&P and stir. Bring to a boil, cover skillet, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until pasta is tender, about 15 minutes.
Remove skillet from heat and stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Top with remaining cheese and sprinkle with scallions. Broil until cheese is melted, spotty brown, and bubbly.
