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. The parmesan cheese was perfect in the sauce. I wanted to eat the entire skillet by myself. Don’t worry, I didn’t. I reluctantly shared with Chicken Legs. There was enough leftover for lunch, and it was equally delicious reheated. This Cheesy Smoked Sausage Skillet will definitely be going into the regular dinner rotation!

  1. If I make this again I will cut the amount of Italian seasoning. It was very forward with this taste and I may add a bit of water to thin down the sauce.

  2. Rarely do I find a recipe online that becomes a weekly rotation but this is the one! My husband raves about this meal and asks for it often. The only variation we do is subbing smoked sausage for jalapeño cheddar sausage for an extra kick. We switch up the pasta, too. Sometimes tortellini, some times ravioli-both delicious! I even wrote this recipe in the cookbook i made for our daughter.

  3. This was delish!! I ended up using 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream and we thought it turned out great. I’m sure it’s just all the more yummy with heavy cream. Thanks for sharing your recipe!! I will make this again for sure!

  4. Hello, I am excited to try this dish….in my experience these types of dishes the flavor seems to enhance the second day, did you find that with eating it the next day? If so how would you recommend reheating it? Would you put it in the oven? Thanks!

  5. Could you use regular pasta shells instead of the tortellini? Not sure my family will eat that tortellini. If so would you cook the pasta first or would it cook enough in the sauce? Thanks so much!!

  6. I bought all the ingredients to make this dish tomorrow. The store didn’t have “refrigerated” Cheese Tortellini, so I bought frozen. Do I thaw out the pasta before I put it in the skillet pan? And if I use garlic powder, how much do you suppose I need? Thanks, I love your recipes.

  7. Ok at first I was like unsure but when this was finished and I took a bite I was like “oh my “ the taste is amazing!!!! I will be making this quite often and I doubled the recipe to feed a larger crowd and it was great . Tastes even better as leftovers!!!!

  8. I have made this several times now…love it. My daughter asked for the recipe and it is now apart of her meal rotation too. Five stars!!

  9. 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?

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

    1. I think green & red peppers with onions would be good with it. Mixed right in. Even zucchini and yellow squash.

    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.

  10. Im from the Caribbean so excuse me if I sound strange but what do u eat with this recipe? And I thought those white things in the skillet is pasta.

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

  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. 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!

  14. This is almost done on the stove now and I can't stop snitching bites. It's amazing. Thanks for another easy weeknight meal idea!

    1. You sound like me! I like to call that "quality control testing"! LOL! So glad you are enjoyed the recipe.

  15. My husband refuses to eat smoked sausage so I used mild italian and I used sour cream instead of heavy cream and it was delicious!

  17. Your recipes are EXCELLENT!!! I know many just use them & don't respond. Know there are probably TONS out here who LOVE your techniques & tastes!!!!

  18. This looks fantastic! My husband will love it with the sausage. I'm adding it to our menu for next week. Thanks for sharing!
