  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb kielbasa or smoked sausage
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (14oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup half n half, heavy whipping cream or milk
  • 8 oz dry penne pasta
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups cheddar jack shredded cheese



Heat oil in a large skillet with sides over medium high heat. Add kielbasa. Cook until browned.


Add minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 20 seconds.


Add chicken broth, diced tomatoes, half n half, dry pasta and black pepper.


Simmer for about 15 minutes or until pasta is tender.


Turn off heat and add 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Stir to combine.


Top with remaining shredded cheese. Serve warm.


I use low sodium chicken broth because the kielbasa and cheese has a lot of salt in it already and regular chicken broth is too salty for our tastes.
