One Pot Cheesy Smoked Sausage & Pasta Skillet

I am so excited to share this cheesy sausage skillet with you today! One pot meals are my favorite, and this one has just topped the list! Savory smoked sausage, creamy melted cheese, fragrant garlic, onions and tomatoes…all come together in a one skillet meal that is sure to please everyone in the family! 

One Pot Cheesy Smoked Sausage and Pasta Skillet - A 20 minutes meal that cooks all in one pot for less mess and goes quickly from stove to table!

 The best part is it takes only about 20 minutes from start to finish. These one pot meals have become my go-to weeknight dinners. Pair with a salad and you’re good to go!

I love smoked sausage, and  it was perfect paired with the other flavors in this recipe. I can’t wait to create some more! I took advantage of the #Buy3Save3 deal at Vons and saved $3 when I bought three packages of Hillshire Farm meat. I’ve got two more packages and another recipe I’m itching to test out, so be sure to be on the lookout! You can get your own $3 coupon by visiting the Safeway Just for U website.

The steps for this recipe are quick and easy. Saute your Hillshire Farm Smoked Turkey Sausage with some onion and garlic, then add tomatoes, pasta, cream, chicken broth and seasons. It only takes about 15 minutes to cook – add some cheese and you’re good to go!

A lot of people ask what pan I use. I use my Simply Calphalon Nonstick 5-qt. Sauté Pan. It’s a great non-stick pan, it’s held up fabulously for years, and clean up is a snap! I recently purchased a Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 12″ Everyday Pan and that one is just as fabulous. Both are perfect for my one pot meals.

    The flavoring of this dish was delicious, but mine ended up with too much liquid. In reading previous comments I would amend to 14.5 oz Chicken Broth instead of 2 cups, half-box small pasta instead of 8 oz. and diced tomatoes (drained). I am going to try this again with the modifications. I used Rotel Tomatoes and Andouille Sausage for added spice. Thanks for this simple recipe!

    So delicious! My family loved it. I added some ground red chili to mine. Yum. maybe some chopped green chili next time (from my freezer stash).

  3. Lacy says

    Just made this recipe – soo amazing! It’s definitely being added in the meal rotation! I didn’t have any issue with it being too liquidy as others seem to have and I even used a larger can of tomatoes undrained (14 1/2 oz). Maybe it depends on the type of pasta? I used bowties like shown above and it turned out perfect!

  4. Kathy says

    I am sooooo making this tonight. It looks amazing. I am going to add a half of a Green pepper, only because I need to use it be for it ruins. I am sure it will still taste great.

  5. Gina says

    This was delicious! I used rotel instead to give it a little kick plus some chopped bacon and a couple different cheeses…perfect! Thanks for sharing!!

    I doubled the recipe for a church potluck and used one link of Eckrich smoked Sausage and one link of their jalapeño and cheese sausage. It wasn’t too hot, actually no heat at all from the sausage, and it all gave it great flavor. I got many compliments on this dish. I transfered it to a Pam sprayed crockpot and kept on warm heat. Thanks for the recipe.

    Hi, this looks uber yummy…just a quick question; do you drain the tomatoes? or do you put them in with the water in the can….thanks :)

  8. Jessica says

    I just had to tell you how much my husband and I loved this recipe! Made for dinner tonight and substituted Italian sausage, we will also add pepper jack cheese next time too. Soo good!

  9. Emma says

    My family loves this. It is my go to meal. I do call it my Oompa Loompa meal because at least one of my twins always looks like one afterward.

  10. Holly says

    This was amazing!!!!! Hubbs went back for seconds, and even ate some cold this morning bc he couldn’t wait to heat it! Will make again and again! Thank u!!!

  11. Michele W says

    This was unbelievably good! I did not expect it to be so tasty! I mixed up the cheeses a little, used cheddar, a mozzerella/parmesan blend and some leftover fontina I had. It was so yummy this will definetely be in my rotation! Thanks for the recipe.
