I made this spicy sausage pasta on the whim and it was a hit!! The words "Best dinner ever babe!" came out of John's mouth! Yes, it was THAT good!
Original blog post with recipe found here
1 t extra virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
13 oz Smoked Turkey Sausage, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 ¼ cups low sodium fat free chicken broth
10 oz can original Rotel
½ cup fat free half and half
½ t salt
½ t black pepper
10 oz uncooked wheat pasta
4 oz reduced fat Pepper jack cheese, shredded
2 medium scallions, diced
1. In a large skillet or sauté pan (oven-safe if you have it), add the olive oil and bring over medium heat. Add the onions and sausage to the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes until sausage is browned and onions are tender. Add the garlic and stir. Continue to cook for another 30 seconds until fragrant.
Special Notes From Me:
1. We omitted the half and half because we didn't have any and used skim milk instead. It worked fine!!
2. We used a regular calphalon skillet - they are oven safe up to 400 degrees. Just make sure it's a deep one because of all the liquid and pasta you add.
Now go out and get all the ingredients and make this TONIGHT!
