Hello dears! How has your week been? I've been all over the map this week, hence the lack of posting. But, I'm back today with a seriously delicious recipe that you will absolutely love. It's spicy, hearty, and cheesy, and - maybe best of all - only dirties one pot! This makes a perfect weeknight dinner, but I'll take it any old night of the week.
One-Pot Spicy Sausage Pasta (adapted from Kevin & Amanda)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lb. spicy Italian sausage (I used turkey), casings removed
1 cup diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 (10 oz.) can Ro-Tel tomatoes and green chiles (I used the Hot variety)
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 oz. rigatoni pasta
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded
1/3 cup chopped scallions
Preheat the broiler.
Add olive oil to a Dutch oven or large, deep skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and onions and cook until browned and cooked through, breaking up with the back of a fork as it cooks. Add garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
Stir in broth, Ro-Tel, cream, pasta, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until pasta is tender, about 15 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Top with remaining cheese and sprinkle with scallions. Broil until cheesed is browned and bubbly.
