Snakebite Sausage and Pasta

Snakebite Sausage and Pasta: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

As I was working on this post I thought I should create a category of 30 minute meals. Even better make a category of 30 minute and one pot or skillet meals. With school and all after school activities in full swing for the year, being able to have the dinner ready with minimal mess in 30 minutes or less is a wonderful thing. Plus being able to find them easily for meal planning would be even better.

This 30 minute one skillet dish is creamy and slightly spicy. In the dish, the tomatoes are added in after the heat has been turned off. By doing this, the tomatoes warm up a bit, but still have that crispness to them.

Snakebite Sausage and Pasta
Ingredients:
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 red pepper, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 small red onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
19.5 ounces spicy turkey sausage
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups penne pasta
2 ounces reduced fat cream cheese
1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half lengthwise
4 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions:
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil, over medium high heat. Add in the diced bell peppers, onion and garlic. Remove the sausage from the casing and add to the skillet as well. Cook for 10 minutes, crumbling the meat as it cooks.

Add the chicken broth, water, cayenne and pasta to the skillet. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook for the recommend time on the pasta box, stirring often.

Reduce the heat to medium and add in the cream cheese and parmesan cheese, stirring until melted.

Turn off the heat and add in the tomatoes and green onions. Allow the mixture to sit for 5-10 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.

Enjoy!!!
