In a noble effort to avoid a dinner rut, I'm always looking for recipes that I think Lee will like. He is a much more adventurous eater than I am, and he's usually willing to try just about anything. He likes foods with gravies, sauces and lots of spices; I do not. But I do like to cook. I don't mind making him something that I won't eat because I'm usually trying to count calories or eat a light dinner anyway.
As I was pinning like a madwoman one night, I ran across this Spicy Sausage Pasta recipe and immediately knew he'd love it. Also, the girl who posted the recipe said her husband loved it, too. And supposedly it was an easy, quick recipe to make.
The main ingredients are smoked sausage, onion, garlic, chicken broth, Ro-Tel, cheese and heavy whipping cream. I even got to use the ole iron skillet, which I'm sure will make my mama proud. You basically brown the sausage with the onion and garlic, mix everything together and bake long enough to melt the cheese. It didn't take long at all!
Our review: I, of course, did not eat it. I know, I know. Lee really liked it but did offer one nugget of advice for next time. He thought it was a bit too spicy, as did 2/3 of the kids. Next time, I will make sure to buy the MILD flavor Ro-Tel instead of the regular; I think that will make a big difference. Otherwise, make sure you have a gallon of milk and some Tums on hand for a chaser to this dinner.
