Week 25: Spicy Sausage Pasta

The Recipe
1/2 tbsp oil
1/2 lb sausage
1 diced onion
1 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chicken broth
5 oz salsa or stewed tomatoes
4tbsp milk or cream
2dl pasta
salt and pepper
1/2 cup cheese, shredded

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.

Add broth, tomatoes, milk / 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.

Remove skillet from heat and stir in half the cheese. Top with remaining cheese and broil until cheese is melted.

The Verdict
Quick and easy to make which is always a plus, but the dish as a whole was just okay. It's a good way to use up left-over sausage though. The recipe as stated serves 2 people nicely as long as they're not too hungry ;)
