Coffee conversation with a good friend always turns to food. What’s for dinner? Anything in your crock pot? Tried any new recipes lately? Thanks Amy for sharing this winner. The fact that this is a one pan dish is a bonus.
1 T. olive oil
1 lb. smoked sausage, sliced
1 cup diced onion
2 cloves of garlic
2 cups of chicken broth (I use low sodium)
1 (10 oz can) of Ro-Tel tomatoes and green chilies, mild
1/2 c. heavy cream
8 oz penne pasta
1/2 t. salt and pepper
1 c. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
Add olive oil to an oven-safe skillet over medium heat until hot. Add sausage and onions and cook about 4 minutes, until browned. Add garlic and cook for one minute.
Add broth, Ro-Tel, cream, pasta, salt and pepper, and stir. Bring to a boil and cover. Reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked, about 15 minutes.
Remove skillet from heat and stir in 1/2 cup of cheese. Top with remaining cheese. Broil until cheese is melted, spotted brown, and bubbly.
