I was pleased with how this came out, my recipe below reflects a little tweaking in the herbs and spices department, and I had to use Parmesan cheese because I forgot to buy the mozzarella! Using the hot Italian sausage gives the dish a little kick - we really enjoyed this!
Cheesy Tomato Sausage Skillet
slightly adapted from ...and a cookie for dessert
Makes 3-4 servings
8 ounces ziti or penne pasta
8 ounces hot Italian sausage
1 can Healthy Request cream of chicken soup
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 1/2 cups skim milk
1 tablespoon dried basil
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella or freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta as directed until al dente. Drain and keep warm.
Heat a large skillet over mediun-high heat. Remove casings from sausage and crumble into pan. Cook until browned and cooked through. Reduce heat to medium; add soup, tomatoes, milk, and seasonings. Stir in cooked pasta. Cook about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until bubbly and heated through (sauce should slightly thicken).
Sprinkle with cheese and remove from heat. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Serve with more cheese if desired.
