Pinspired: Spicy Sausage Casserole

Most of my pins are fashion related but occasionally I love to find new recipes. I get in a rut in the kitchen just as much as I do trying to find an outfit so Pinterest usually saves the day in both departments. The recipes I choose depends on two things for me. I am a picky eater so ingredients matter. If I have to buy a bazillion different things or they are ingredients I don't care for, I'm out. Secondly, how easy is it for me to cook? I am no Paula Deen or Giada. Most of my meals consist of some type of can or box, lol. My poor husband and family...

I had to share a recipe I tried tonight that made everyone happy. It was super easy and super delicious! If you are looking for a new meal, try this! I served this with sauteed cabbage.

Spicy Sausage Pasta
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb smoked sausage
1.5 cups diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 (10 oz) can Ro-Tel tomatoes and green chiles, Mild
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 oz penne pasta
1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper, each
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions

1. Add olive oil to an oven-safe skillet over medium high heat until just smoking. Add sausage and onions and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

2. Add broth, tomatoes, cream, pasta, salt and pepper and stir. Bring to a boil, cover skillet, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until pasta is tender, about 15 minutes.

3. Remove skillet from heat and stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Top with remaining cheese and sprinkle with scallions. Broil until cheese is melted, spotty brown, and bubbly.

Makes 4 servings. Nutritional Information for this recipe can be found at
