One Pan Sausage and Penne Skillet

Hubby asked me to create a Pinterest board for One Pot Meals.  This is one of the first recipes that we added to it.  To me, a one pot meals are easy clean up, easy meal planning and something that is hearty and delicious as the days get shorter and colder.  Just add a salad and beverage and you should be all set.  And with a pasta dish our son is always happy.  If he is working after school he will call  and ask what dinner was.  If we say Pasta, then he doesn’t bring home something from work.  

INGREDIENTS

4 links Italian turkey sausage
1/2 medium onion, finely diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry (Optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 1/2 teaspoon basil
2 cups crushed tomatoes
3 cups low sodium chicken broth
5 cups Penne  pasta
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

Remove turkey sausage from casings and fry in large skillet over medium-high heat until crumbled and brown, about 2-3 minutes. Add onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 2 minutes.
Add spinach, red pepper flakes, salt, parsley, oregano, basil, tomatoes and broth and stir until combined. Stir in the pasta. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium and cover. Cook, stirring often, until pasta is tender, about 12-15 minutes (smaller pasta will take less time). Top with cheese, cover and let sit until cheese is melted. Serve.
