Super Simple Sausage Skillet

Gina Davis


This simple dish is packed full of flavor! It never last for a late night snack! The whole skillet is gone in a flash. This dish brings all my kids home that night for some reason and they take anything left home with them to their significant others! I will post photo when I make this again. Sorry for not having one already.

How to Make Super Simple Sausage Skillet


  1. In a large skillet add sausage, peppers and onions. Cook until sausage is just done.
  2. Add garlic and tomatoes and cook until it starts to bubble.
  3. Add 2/3 box of dry pasta (or more if you like more pasta) fold into sausage mixture. Add 2 cups water and stir into the mix bring to a low boil and reduce heat to simmer. Cover and let simmer until pasta is done adding more water as pasta absorbs it if needed.
  4. When pasta is cooked through turn off heat and top with cheese and re cover to melt.
