Recipe: One Pot Cheesy Sausage & Pasta

I'm always looking for quick & easy dinners - especially one pot - less dishes for me to clean up after! I pinned this one quite a while ago in my "Recipes I Want To Try" and finally added it into the meal plan for this week. Here we go with a One Pot Cheesy Sausage Pasta Skillet! 

I have this great Farberware skillet I got from Vocalpoint - and sauteed shallots, garlic and turkey sausage.

After they are sauteed, add chicken broth, tomatoes, mushrooms, milk, pasta and seasoning. Bring this to a boil and then let it simmer. This allows the noodles to cook while melding the ingredients together. The milk adds a creamy texture without the heaviness of cream.

Once the noodles are all plumped up - you remove it from the heat and then stir in half of the cheese! This adds to the milk to make it a really cheesy cream sauce. Then you'll top it with the rest of the cheese for a melty top.

My husband is not a fan of sausage - knowing that - I didn't think he would eat hardly any of this. He ate HALF of it!! I thought for sure I'd have leftovers for days - NOPE! That says it all in this house. :-) I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as we did! Thanks to Yellow Bliss Road for the idea!
