sausage-dinner

Oh my gracious…THIS is a GREAT new recipe I found last weekend! Its also super easy (and inexpensive) to throw together on a weeknight when you have very little time to devote to making dinner for the family. I’ll warn you…this recipe will literally punch you in the face with flavor! Its amazing 🙂

Ingredients:

1 TBSP Olive Oil
1 LB Smoked Sausage
1 ½ Cups Onion, diced
2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
2 Cups of Chicken Broth (all natural, or low sodium would be best)
1 (10oz) Can of Rotel
½ Cup Heavy Cream
8oz Penne Pasta
½ tsp Salt and Pepper
1 Cup Mexican Blend Cheese
⅓ Cup of Scallions, thinly sliced

Directions:

Lightly brown the sliced sausage and onions in the olive oil over medium-high heat in a deep skillet. Add the garlic and cook it in there for about 30 seconds. Add your broth, rotel, cream, pasta, salt and pepper to the pan and bring it all to a boil, then cover it and let it simmer for about 15 minutes (or until the pasta is tender). (I uncovered the dish after about 10 minutes and let it finish cooking uncovered to get rid of some of the extra broth/water). Add your cheese and scallions to the dish and stir well.
