Difficulty: Easy

Prep: 10 minutes

Cook: 20 minutes

Total: 30 minutes

Serves: 4


1 tsb. cooking oil

1 lb. Kountry Boys Smoked Jalapeño Pork & Beef Sausage, sliced into ¼-inch rounds

1 medium onion, diced

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

1 (10 oz.) can diced tomatoes with green chiles

1/2 cup heavy cream

8 oz. farfalle pasta, uncooked

salt and pepper to taste (optional)

1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

1/3 cup green onion, thinly sliced


Add cooking 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.

Add broth, tomatoes, cream, uncooked pasta, salt and pepper, then stir. Bring to a boil, cover skillet and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until pasta is tender, about 15 minutes.

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