CHEESY TOMATO ITALIAN SAUSAGE SKILLET

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. Leftovers are even better and keeps well a couple days refrigerated.  You might also like our recipe for crock pot Italian stew.
