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. I used fresh onions and garlic, cut the broth down to 1/2 cup, and used zucchini noodles instead of pasta. Really good! I do think next time I'll cut the broth out completely. It was still a bit soupy since zucchini doesn't absorb the water like pasta does. The flavor is really good though!

  2. Love this receipe!!! Making it for the 2nd time tonight. Doubled it since there were hardly any leftovers the 1st time I made it. Has anyone tried this with roasted chicken instead of sausage? May have to try that the next time!!

  3. I made this for my family last night and everyone loved it! My husband said, "That's a keeper!".
    I doubled the recipe for a larger family (and leftovers). I used 1 lb smoked sausage and 1 lb turkey sausage. I also use mild Rotel because the original is a bit spicy for me 🙂

  4. This was very good. My high school daughter took leftovers to school and her friend's commented that it tasted like it came from a restaurant.

  5. This was a wonderful recipe. I made it for our weekly lunches and it reheated beautifully. It paired perfectly with roasted broccoli.
