Skillet Penne and Sausage Supper

Skillet Penne and Sausage Supper created by rsnelling42

Try this recipe if you're looking for something quick and easy with great flavor. The pasta cooks right in the skillet so there's no need for extra pots. Don't make this without the sun-dried tomatoes because it will not have as much flavor. My husband recently told me that this is his favorite of the pasta dishes I cook. Recipe is from America's Test Kitchen.

ingredients

directions

  • Heat olive oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. (Be sure to use at least a 12-inch size skillet to hold all ingredients.) Add the onion and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 4 minutes.
  • Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Sprinkle the sun-dried tomatoes and penne evenly over the sausage. Pour the broth and milk over the pasta. Cover and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the spinach a handful at a time and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. (It may seem like a lot of spinach, but it will wilt considerably.) Stir in the Parmesan and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Note: You can use Italian pork sausage, but you may have to spoon some of the fat off before adding the pasta.

    Made half a recipe and it was delicious. I did cook the pasta ahead of time and added it after the spinach.

    We really enjoyed this dinner in the sauce was absolutely delicious. I didn't want to make a tomato sauce because I didn't want to deal with heartburn. I found this recipe and the great reviews and figured I would try it. the sun-dried tomatoes gave it a nice flavor. This is a definite keeper. Thanks for sharing the recipe .

    This was really good! I used 1/2 Hot Sausage and 1/2 Sweet sausage. Very good flavor. Tasted like an authentic Italian Recipe
