Cheesy Smoked Sausage Pasta Skillet

Smoked Sausage Pasta Skillet is great comfort food and a quick, easy meal. Just add some cornbread muffins and a salad.  We love easy skillet meals during the week that you can just throw together with very little time in the kitchen.  This meal is good in summer and winter.  I like using fresh garden tomatoes and peppers in this recipe in summer.

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)
