Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 lb smoked sausage (used butterball turkey kielbasa)
    1.5 cups diced onion
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    1 (10 oz) can Ro-Tel tomatoes and green chiles, Mild
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    8 oz penne pasta (I used dream fields rotini, but it doesn't really matter)
    1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper, each
    1 cup mexican cheese, shredded
    1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions (optional)

Tips

I didn't put it in the oven (no oven safe skillets here) and it turned out fine.


Directions

1. Add olive oil to an oven-safe skillet over medium high heat until just smoking. Add sausage and onions and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

2. Add broth, tomatoes, cream, pasta, salt and pepper and stir. Bring to a boil, cover skillet, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until pasta is tender, about 15 minutes.

3. Remove skillet from heat and stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Top with remaining cheese and sprinkle with scallions. Broil until cheese is melted, spotty brown, and bubbly.

Serving Size: I did 6, but i would think it would make more than that, so if you broke it up more, it would be less cal, etc.
