This Cheesy Smoked Sausage Pasta Skillet is great comfort food and a quick, easy meal. Just add some cornbread muffins and a salad.
1 pound smoked sausage
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 medium onion, chopped or about 1 cup
1 green pepper, chopped or about 1/2 cup
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
few drops hot sauce, Optional
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 (14.5 ounce) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (4 ounce) can green chilis, drained
2 1/2 cups uncooked rotini pasta (could use shells, macaroni, penne)
1 cup shredded cheese of your choice (could use more cheese. I used Mozzarella cheese)
Melt butter in skillet and brown sausage, onion and green pepper. Add garlic, salt, pepper, chicken broth, tomatoes, green chilis and pasta. Bring to a boil and let cook on low, uncovered, until pasta is tender about 20 minutes. Sprinkle on cheese while still hot. Enjoy!
(Note: You could also make this without the pasta and serve over rice for another easy and different dish)
