Equipment

  • large skillet with a lid that fits

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced (or 1 tbsp minced from a jar)
  • 1 13 oz pkg Turkey Smoked Sausage (I use Hillshire Farm, but any brand will do. Chicken Sausage would also be good in this!) cut into rounds and then in half
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 tsp Lawry's Seasoned Salt
  • 8 oz (dry) noodles (orecchiette, medium shells, elbows, bowties will work)
  • 5 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1.5 oz freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  • In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add in diced onion, minced garlic, and the slices of turkey smoked sausage. Cook until sausage is browned and the onion is softened.
  • Stir in chicken broth, milk, seasoned salt, noodles, and broccoli florets.
  • Bring to a boil then cover and reduce the heat to low. Continue to simmer for about 12-14 minutes or until the liquid has reduced and the noodles are cooked through.
  • Take off heat and stir in grated parmesan cheese! Enjoy!

*Note: I have made this at least 10 times now because we love it so much and it's so easy. But, a couple of the times I've made it the liquid didn't completely reduce, but the noodles were totally done. I have no idea why! But, if that happens to you. Here's what you do: If the noodles are cooked through and the liquid hasn't fully reduced then turn up the heat to medium high and stir constantly for a minute or two until completely reduced. Easy fix!
