Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound Smoked Turkey Sausage sliced
  • 1 cup diced onion about 1 medium onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic about 2-3 fresh cloves
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 10-ounce can diced tomatoes (with or without chiles) (like rotel)
  • 1/2 cup milk or heavy cream
  • 8 ounces dry pasta like rotini, penne or farfalle
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar-Jack cheese
  • 1/3 cup sliced scallions for garnish

Instructions

  • Add olive oil to a 5 quart saute pan over medium high heat. Add onions and sausage and cook until lightly browned. Add garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
  • Add chicken broth, tomatoes (undrained), milk, pasta, and seasonings. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until pasta is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Turn off the heat and stir in 1/2 cup of cheese. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and cover for about five minutes to allow cheese to melt. Top with sliced scallions and serve. (You could also broil for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese).
