I knew as soon as I read it that it was going to be a tad spicy for my little girls. So like many dishes I prepare I decided to make it a bit less spicy and it is fabulous, my 1-yr-old is gobbling up the noodles at this very moment.

The other thing I LOVED about this recipe is that you don’t boil the noodles separately. The noodles cook in the sauce which means one less pot to wash – SCORE!!! Just heat up some crusty bread and you are all set.

This is one of those easy recipes that’s so versatile. Take, for example, I’ve used chicken sausage, polish sausage, turkey sausage and all of them were delicious. I’ve also used different shaped kinds of pasta, I prefer a curly pasta but don’t let whats in your pantry limit you, be adventurous and try whatever you have. Same with the cheese, if you don’t have Colby-Jack, that’s fine too I’ve made this with cheddar and it’s great too.

  • 1 lb smoked sausage, sliced
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 14.5 oz can of petite diced tomatoes (do not drain)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Colby-Jack cheese, divided
  • 1/3 cup green onion, sliced

Instructions

  1. In large skillet with lid (oven safe if possible) heat olive oil on medium-high heat, add onion cooking until lightly browned. Add sausage and cook approximately 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook additional 1-2 minutes, stirring.

  5. My daughter and I were looking for new ways to cook up smoked sausage – both our husbands love it. This one looks good. I have all the ingredients on hand, but will use a small penne instead of the campanelle. Hope you’re having as much fun bloghopping as me.

    I made this for dinner tonight. I would suggest that you go ahead and drain the tomatoes and drop the chicken broth down to 3 cups. I doubled the recipe and used 16oz of elbow noodles and still came up with way too much extra liquids at the end so please learn from my mistake and do the the 4 cups of liquid/16oz noodles. I make my hamburger helpers like this all the time and you don’t need to use the broiler. Just add in all the cheese and stir until smooth. Top with green onions and serve. One pan happiness! =)
