Guess where I found this recipe? That’s right. Pinterest. It’s been my main source of inspiration as of late.
This recipe is quick (I whipped it up in less than 30 minutes), easy and best of all, it only uses up one pot. Score!
Spicy Sausage Pasta
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb smoked sausage (I bought mine at our local butcher’s)
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small jalapeno, seeded and diced
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 (10 oz) can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup heavy cream (I used 5% and it was just fine)
8 oz pasta (I used bow tie but penne would work fine)
1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper, each
1 cup shredded cheese. The original recipe called for Monterey Jack but I had none and used a mixture of sharp cheddar and mozzarella instead
1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions
Add the olive oil to a small dutch oven over medium high heat. Add sausage and onions and cook until lightly browned. Add garlic and jalapeno and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add broth, tomatoes, cream, pasta, salt and pepper and stir. Bring to a boil, cover dutch oven and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until pasta is tender, about 15 minutes.
