This Spicy Sausage Pasta Skillet is a great one pot meal!
I can’t believe it is almost time for a new school year. I know lots of families out there will soon start planning and organizing supplies and activities. It’s a busy time of year.
Hi it’s Susanne from New South Charm back again with another great recipe for your family. This month I’m sharing one of my favorite fast fix dinners, Spicy Sausage Pasta Skillet. This has become one of our favorite meals. It’s so easy and packed with flavor that I can’t help but make it every couple weeks.
I love fast fix dinners especially ones that cook up in one pot or skillet. Less time doing the dishes means more time spent doing more important things.
Another thing I really like about this recipe is that it is made Kielbasa Sausage instead of chicken or beef which are both becoming more and more expensive. Kielbasa is inexpensive and when sliced a single package can be stretched to prepare a whole meal.
Whenever I make this recipe I use elbow shaped pasta because I almost always have a box on hand. Really though any small pasta such at rigatoni or penne will work great. There’s no boiling the pasta in a separate pot. How great is that?
We love to eat at home instead of going to restaurants and with easy to prepare meals like this Spicy Sausage Pasta Skillet it’s a lot easier to do. What is your go to meal for busy nights? Leave a comment below and let me know.
