Just when you thought you'd seen every possible version of mac & cheese, you realize there's one missing— Skillet Sausage & Pepper Mac & Cheese. The mashup of sausage and peppers and mac & cheese is the one you've been waiting for – two comfort foods that are even better together. And it's ready in only 30 minutes, since the penne cooks right in the skillet!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound mild or hot Italian pork sausage or Italian-style turkey sausage, casings removed
  • 3 cups Swanson® Unsalted Chicken Broth or 33% Less Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 8 ounces uncooked penne pasta (about 2 2/3 cups) 
  • 16 ounces frozen pepper and onion blend
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Step 1

    Cook the sausage in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat.  Remove the sausage from the skillet, cover and keep warm.

  • Step 2

    Add the broth, soup, garlic powder and onion powder and heat to a boil. Stir in the penne and frozen peppers and onions. Reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 15 minutes or until the penne is tender and the sauce has thickened, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 3

    Add the cheese and the sausage and stir until the cheese is melted.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.
