One Skillet Chicken Sausage and Pasta


Since we’re all very busy cleaning the house and organizing the cupboards in the New Year it’s nice to have an easy dinner the throw together that the whole family will love!

This dish is really nice because it’s got just a little spice in there and of course the chicken sausage is really flavorful and a healthier option to pork or beef. I grabbed an Italian Style chicken sausage, but if you want to kick up the spice a bit you should definitely go with a Southwestern variety.


  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 Johnsonville Chicken Sausage 3 Cheese Italian Style
  • 1/2 Onion, chopped
  • 1 clove minced Garlic
  • 2 Cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 Cup Pace Picante Medium Salsa
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 8 oz Cellentani pasta, or you could use macaroni
  • 1 1/2 Cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


In a large skillet over medium heat pour in the olive oil and add the chicken sausage and onion. Cook until lightly browned. Add garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes.

Add chicken broth, salsa and cream. Mix together and turn up the heat to bring it to a boil. Once it’s boiling add the pasta and reduce heat back to medium. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the pasta is al dente.  Stir in 1 cup of the cheese and remove from heat. Let it sit for about 3 minutes. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and let it sit covered for a few more minutes to let the sauce set.

Serve it up with some steamed veggies and enjoy!

Happy New Year everyone!
