Cheesy Smoked Sausage Skillet
This one-skillet, no-boil meals are right up my alley. It’s something I’ve done several times, and every time it’s been a hit and my family loves every inch! They can be prepared and cleaned up in less than half an hour. Seriously, who wouldn’t enjoy that?
This meal is always a huge hit! The sausage had a good smokiness to it. We used smoked turkey sausage, but standard smoked sausage would also taste delicious! And the sauce was divine! The Parmesan cheese complemented the sauce well. There was enough leftover for lunch, and it warmed just as well. This Cheesy Smoked Sausage Skillet will undoubtedly become a regular dinner option in our home! And we love serving this skillet meal with a salad and garlic bread.
