Spicy Sausage & Pasta Bake

Acquired this recipe from the lovely, Emily Bites. Her recipes are geared towards individuals who are on weight watchers or are just looking for easy ways to cut the calories on simple meals. This recipe cost me under 10 bucks and was simple to make. Its spicy, cheesy and creamy. Whats convenient about this meal is you don’t even have to boil and cook the pasta! One pot meal! Any type of pasta noodle will do for this meal.

What you need:

1 t extra virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
13 oz Smoked Turkey Sausage, sliced (I used Hillshire Farms)
garlic minced
2 ¼ cups low sodium fat free chicken broth
10 oz can Ro-Tel tomatoes & green chiles, original
½ cup fat free half and half
½ t salt
½ t black pepper
10 oz uncooked wheat pasta
4 oz reduced fat Pepper jack cheese, shredded

Directions:

1.    In a large skillet or sauté pan add the olive oil and bring over medium heat. Add the onions and sausage to the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes until sausage is browned and onions are tender. Add the garlic and stir.
2.    Add the broth, Ro-Tel, half and half, salt and pepper and mix together. Add the uncooked pasta and stir together until the liquid covers the pasta. Cover the skillet and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and keep covered. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the pasta is cooked.
3.    Transfer to a 7×11 baking dish. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Cover with tin foil and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
