I was browsing Pinterest the other day looking for some easy one skillet meals and happened upon a variation of the dish I made tonight…Ingredients:

1 TBSP olive oil

½ cup dice onion

14 -1 6 oz. fully cooked smoked sausage, sliced in ¼ inch pieces

1 (12 oz) package Green Giant Garden Vegetable Medley

2 ½ cups chicken broth

½ cup milk

8 oz. dry Penne

½ cup grated parmesan cheese


1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil for 2 – 3 minutes

2. Add onion and sausage, cooking until onion is sautéed

3. Stir in bag of frozen vegetable medley

4. Pour in chicken broth and milk

5. Add uncooked Penne pasta, heat to boiling

6. Reduce heat, cover and cook for about 20 minutes or until pasta is al dente

7. Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese

I had forgotten how much I love smoked sausage!  This was so delicious and the leftovers were even better!  I will definitely be making this again.
