One-pot meals are great for busy families such as mine. They are quick and easy to put together and require little cleanup. We love One Pot Chicken Spagetti, Creamy Chicken and Noodles, and this One Pot Smoked Sausage Pasta.
It takes just 20 minutes to prepare. These one-pot meals are my favorite weeknight meal. Combine with a salad, and you are good to go!
Smoked sausage is a favorite of mine, and this combination was perfect.
PREP TIME: 10 mins
COOK TIME: 25 mins
TOTAL TIME: 35 mins
SERVINGS: 5 servings
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 pound Smoked Turkey Sausage sliced
1 cup diced onion about 1 medium onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic about 2-3 fresh cloves
2 cups chicken broth
1 10-ounce can diced tomatoes (with or without chiles) (like rotel)
1/2 cup milk or heavy cream
8 ounces dry pasta like rotini, penne or farfalle
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup shredded Cheddar-Jack cheese
1/3 cup sliced scallions for garnish
Add olive oil to a 5 quart saute pan over medium high heat. Add onions and sausage and cook until lightly browned. Add garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
Add chicken broth, tomatoes (undrained), milk, pasta, and seasonings. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until pasta is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed.
Turn off the heat and stir in ½ cup of cheese. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and cover for about five minutes to allow cheese to melt. Top with sliced scallions and serve. (You could also broil for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese).
