OMG!  This was SO good!  The best part of this meal is that it only uses one pan.  The pasta cooks while it simmers in the sauce.  Yay for less dishes to clean!!

Our pasta was super spicy.  I sent Chicken Legs to the grocery store and he bought Hot Rotel.  Let me tell you, Hot Rotel is super spicy!  Fortunately, we both like spicy food!  I decided to splurge on calories and used Conech Smoked Sausage.  It had great flavor and smelled wonderful cooking.  Feel free to substitute smoked turkey sausage if you want to cut down on the calories.

This makes a ton.  We saved the leftovers for lunch.  I poured a little chicken broth in the container so the pasta wouldn’t dry out when we reheated it.  It was just as good leftover.

  1. Omg! This is one of the best recipes I have tried. Husband went back for 3rds! Took leftovers to a friend and she and her sister both asked for recipe. Making again next weekend to take to another friends (oyster roast) since I don't like oysters, I'll have something wonderful to eat. Thanks Stephanie! Keep up the great work with these recipes.

  2. I decided to make this dish for supper tonight because the picture looked so good, and it was DELICIOUS! It was creamy and cheesy, BUT, it was too spicy for me. I need to know it is was the Rotel or the Conecuh Sausage making it so spicy? !

  3. Love the look of the dish; perfect for my comfort-food loving husband! Think I will make it tomorrow night when he comes home from a business trip. Oh, the tablecloth is gorgeous as well. Source?

  4. Just made this tonight, and it was SOOO good (and so easy)! I pretty much followed your recipe, but used minced garlic since I had no garlic powder. I was surprised at how spicy the Rotel made it. A long time ago Ruby Tuesday's had this southwestern chicken pasta that I could never replicate, but this would work perfect, just with chicken, black beans, and a some fresh tomato when you serve it.

  5. From just the pic, I was going to say OMG that looks so good and with your OMG on the taste, it is an obvious must try. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  6. After seeing this yesterday, I had to make it last night – my husband and son LOVED it. I made very slight modifications (using what I had in the pantry, lol) – evaporated milk instead of heavy cream, mild Rotel, and shredded pepper jack cheese. I think this will become a 'go to' recipe for busy nights and hungry men, thanks!

  7. When I looked at the picture, I instantly wondered if I could use Conecuh and you answered the question for me. I love Conecuh.

  8. I would stand at the stove and eat this right out of the pan with a fork. Whoops, don't tell anyone I said that 🙂 Looks D-lish!!!
