This is Cheesy Tomato Italian Sausage skillet recipe is really easy and perfect for any weeknight meal.


The cheese makes it creamy and the tomatoes and pasta make it a great comfort food dish. Serve it with some Italian bread for a recipe you will make over and over again. I love that you can prepare it all in one skillet.

Cheesy Tomato Italian Sausage Skillet

2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 pound Italian sausage with casings removed
1/2 cup chopped green onions, (can use regular onions)
1 cup chopped green sweet peppers
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup milk
1 cup macaroni or whatever past you like, uncooked
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (can use whatever cheese you like)


Brown sausage in cooking oil along with onions and green peppers. Sprinkle on black pepper, salt, minced garlic and Italian seasoning. Pour in the can of diced tomatoes and the milk. Stir in the pasta and sprinkle on shredded cheese. Turn to simmer and cook about 20 minutes, uncovered, or until pasta is tender and has soaked up most of the liquid. Makes 8 servings. Enjoy!

Note: You can sprinkle on extra cheese to serve.
