Menu Monday and A Recipe

I am linking up with Rachel over at In No Simple Language for Menu Monday! Here is what we are eating this week...

Monday: Spring Mix Salad w/toasted Almonds
Tuesday: Taco Tuesday
Wednesday: Hudson's Birthday Dinner - He chose Pizza
Friday: Dinner at a friends' house

So we aren't eating super healthy this week which means I will be working out extra hard!

The other week Erin posted an amazing recipe for Spicy Sausage Pasta that M and I just had to try! It was amazing! Here is the must make this!

1 tbsp olive oil

1 lb smoked sausage

1.5 cups diced onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

1 (10 oz) can Ro-Tel tomatoes and green chiles, Mild

1/2 cup heavy cream

8 oz penne pasta

1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper, each

1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions

1. 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.

2. Add broth, tomatoes, 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.

3. Remove skillet from heat and stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Top with remaining cheese and sprinkle with scallions. Broil until cheese is melted, spotty brown, and bubbly.

Makes 4 servings. Nutritional Information for this recipe can be found at
