Cheesy Smoked Sausage Skillet

Cheesy Smoked Sausage Skillet - smoked sausage, tomato sauce, chicken broth, heavy cream, refrigerated cheese tortellini and parmesan. Everything cooks in the same pan! Even the pasta!! SO easy and super delicious! We ate this 2 nights in a row.

I saw this recipe over at one of my favorite blogs, KevinandAmanda.com, and couldn't wait to give it a try!  OMG! It was SO delicious!

I am really into these no-boil, one-pot skillet dishes.  I have made several and we have loved all of them. They are easy to clean up and take less than 30 minutes to make. Who doesn't love that?!

We both absolutely LOVED this dish. There was a nice smokiness from the sausage. We actually used smoked turkey sausage, but regular smoked sausage would be great too! The sauce had a great flavor as well. I really loved the parmesan cheese in it. I wanted to eat the entire skillet by myself. I didn't; I reluctantly shared with Chicken Legs. There was enough leftover for lunch, and it was equally delicious reheated. This will definitely be going into the regular dinner rotation!

  7. For tomato sauce, is this just a can of reg. sauce, or a can of pasta sauce? Just wanna clarify.

  8. I have made this several times already, always with RAVE reviews from my hubby and 3 boys. I love a recipe that is both easy and family friendly. I have used a variety of filled pastas (whatever I have on hand), always turns out great! And 1 skillet, can it get any better? Thanks!

  12. You know, I'm a single Dad and had only cooked a meal several times, but seven years ago, I began making breakfast, lunch and dinner and doing so everyday. I'm 59 but am raising my 10 year old daughter, Stephanie. I am disabled and have a hard time with balance, coordination, dexterity and more. This recipe sounds as though even I would have a hard time screwing it up, thanks and I'll be sure to check out your others as well.

  13. Is the smoked sausage already cooked, suchas Hillshire Farms or do I use uncooked sausage that I cook first?

  15. When do I add the pasta? Do I cook it like normal. Noddles.

    1. Add the pasta after you cook the sausage - with the other ingredients. It cooks in the pan with everything else. Do not precook it.

    1. You can reheat it in the microwave or on the stove-top with a little extra chicken broth in the pan.

  20. I just made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. The only downside was it was a little too salty towards the end of my bowl. I'm new at cooking. Any suggestions to help bring the saltiness down?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. there isn't any added salt in this dish. I would suggest using low sodium chicken broth and no-salt Italian seasoning.
