Turkey Sausage & Penne Skillet


The yumminess pasta.

That’s the title the kids asked me to give this dish. 

This was one of those throw togethers that I didn’t even really plan to blog.  But the kids absolutely shoveled it down with cries of, “Mom, what is this called?” You have to blog it!”

When I told them is didn’t have a name and no I hadn’t planned on blogging it, they coined it the yumminess pasta and asked for third helpings.


So when the Festive Foodies ladies decided to have a round up of our favorite comfort foods, I thought that this fit the bill perfectly!

Carby pasta delicious enough to be dubbed yumminess pasta?  Sounds like comfort food to me!

And with a winter storm on the way (again) I’m thinking we’ll probably make another batch of yumminess pasta tonight!

Enjoy these great #ComfortFood ideas from #FestiveFoodies!


Turkey Sausage & Penne Skillet

1 lb ground turkey
1 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp dried sage
½ tsp fennel
¼ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp fresh rosemary, minced
2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
12 oz whole wheat penne
4 cups chicken broth
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese


Place the turkey and onion in a large lidded skillet.  Cook until the turkey is browned and the onion is tender. 

Stir in the garlic and spices, including fresh herbs. Cook for an additional minute.

Add the penne and chicken broth.  Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed and pasta is cooked to al dente.  If the liquid absorbs before pasta is tender, add ¼ cup water.

Stir in the parmesan.  Heat through and serve.

  3. I make something along these lines, but with pepper in as well and hot Italian sausage and it was similarly an instant hit, so I can imagine this is tasty too.
