Spicy Sausage Pasta Recipe

This Creamy Sausage Rotel Pasta is a new favorite! I’ve made this several times and absolutely LOVE it. I combined two of my favorite recipes (Creamy Noodles and 3-Ingredient Cream Cheese Sausage Dip) into one AH-MAZ-ING main dish! Pasta, sausage, Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles, in a creamy cheesy Alfredo style sauce. O-M-YUM! This only takes a few minutes to make and tastes great! I seriously could not stop eating this pasta. Heck, I dream about this yummy pasta! You MUST give it a try ASAP!

How to Make Creamy Sausage & Rotel Pasta

This pasta is super easy to make. Start with cooking the spaghetti. While the spaghetti is cooking, brown some sausage. Add cream cheese, garlic, butter, sour cream, heavy cream, and Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles. Cook until the cheese has melted and the sauce starts to thicken. Toss in the cooked spaghetti and serve.

  • I used Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage. You can use any brand or type of fresh pork sausage you prefer.
  • Don’t like spaghetti? You can use any pasta you prefer. Penne, bowtie, fettuccine, or linguine all work great.
  • Is Sausage & Rotel Pasta spicy? This pasta does have a kick to it. If you are sensitive to heat, use a can of Mild Rotel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chiles.
  • This pasta is best served immediately after preparing.
  • You may need to add more heavy cream, milk, or chicken broth to the pasta when reheating any leftovers.

What to Serve with Easy Skillet Pasta

As I said, this pasta has quickly become a favorite at our house. It is SO delicious and it is ready in about 15 minutes. I make this at least once a month. We usually serve this with a salad and some bread. This is also great with some roasted vegetables. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with this spicy pasta:

  1. I made this with veggie crumbles and it was delish!!! The base is so good, you can probably sub any protein or pasta. Will try it with turkey sausage next time, yummy!!

  2. So easy to make and super yummy. My husband said that it tasted like something served out of a fancy restaurant. When my son came home he was hoping we all liked it because he definitely wanted me to make it again. It really came together quickly. I did add a little more cream after it had sat a bit to thin it down. Will be making again soon!

  3. This recipe is going into rotation! I got your email, made my list, when straight to the store and made it that night. Everyone gave it 2 thumbs up and said “Make it again soon!”. It ranks right up there with your Million Dollar Taco Spaghetti!

  4. This was awesome and easy to make. My husband came into the kitchen while I was making it and said “just looking at the ingredients going in, it gets me all warm and fuzzy. It’s a keeper!!

  5. This dish sounds wonderful, but I’m not a big fan of this kind of sausage. Do you think it could be made with ground beef. If so would you suggest any seasonings to add to the beef?

  6. This was AMAZING!
    It popped up in my email a few days ago while I was making my grocery list and I’m so glad it did!
    Everyone enjoyed it so much that I’ll have to double it next time so I’ll have leftovers!

  7. I made this last night for my family – it was incredible!! I used a tri-color penne pasta simply because it’s easier to eat than a thin noodle. SO so good!! I also added a can of mushrooms juice and all to thin it out a bit and because we love mushrooms!! Will be making this again real soon!!
