My kids love sausage. They seriously love sausage, so we try to eat it a few times a month. I love cooking with it because I can have dinner ready in about 15 minutes so it makes it the perfect meal for those crazy evenings when your kids have practice or you are just too tired to cook. My family loves this Cheesy Pasta and Sausage Skillet Dinner.
Plus it is a one pot meal. That means you only have one dish to clean. These are my favorite kinds of dinners. When I can have dinner ready quickly and have hardly no clean up, I am a happy Mom.
I ran to my local Kroger to pick up what I needed for dinner. Barilla Pasta and Johnsonville Sausage are my brands of choice. They are the perfect picks for this easy dinner idea.
