Chicken Apple Sausage One Pan Pasta:

Sorry I didn’t post yesterday. I was WAY behind in my bookkeeping (my least favorite part about being self-employed), so I spent most of the day catching up on that. Before I knew it, the clock read 7 PM, and the day was gone. Apparently time also flies when you’re not having fun.

Lately I’ve been planning some ideas for fall decor, and in all honesty, I’m really stressed out about it. In the past, I didn’t do much indoor fall decorating. This year, however, I’m participating in a fall home tour, so I thought a few touches here and there would be good.

I’m trying to stay away from super country decor (which I love) because I don’t think it will work with my current style. So, in addition to my bookkeeping catch up yesterday, I spray painted some gourds. I’m not sure I like the results, but regardless of what I decide about them, the Fall Tour will be live next Wednesday, so you’ll see what I’ve come up with then.

Having said all that, I thought I’d take a break from decorating today and make something delicious to deal with my stress. Over the past month I’ve seen countless one pan pasta dishes on the Web. I try to stay away from recipes that contain mostly pasta, because as you know, I live by myself, love pasta, and don’t know when enough pasta is enough. However, I’ve been dying to try one of these recipes, so I figured I’d cook up a batch today and portion it out the rest of the week. (Unless I still can’t figure out my fall decor, stress out, and eat it all in one sitting.) I’m making One Pan Apple Chicken Sausage Pasta.\

How to Make Chicken Apple Sausage One Pan Pasta

I’ve changed things up a bit and am using one of my favorite sausages – chicken apple. There is something about the flavor combo that I just love. Plus, it seems especially fitting for fall.

What I love most about this recipe is that it comes together SO quickly. I kid you not. Thirty minutes tops. It’s all done in one pan, so cleanup is a breeze as well. And on top of all that, this recipe is super flavorful. The pasta actually cooks in chicken stock, cream, and the juice from the tomatoes. Yum!

The variations to this recipe are endless. Throw in any type of sausage or meat and feel free to add whatever veggies you like. You can even switch up the cheese. I’m already thinking about using steak, Gorgonzola, and sun-dried tomatoes the next time I make this. Sounds like heaven in a pan!

Whatever you decide to put in, give this recipe a try and let me know what you think.

  1. Delicious! I subbed butternut squash for the diced tomatoes (can’t eat nightshades), left out the green chilies, added a 1/2 cup of extra chicken broth, and seasoned to taste. The apple adds the perfect amount of sweetness. My whole family devoured it. It’s definitely going into my recipe rotation.

  2. This recipe was so delicious! We added more veggies (bell pepper, spinach, fresh tomatoes) and doubled the recipe and all worked out really well. This will definitely be going on our weekly dinner rotations.

  3. This is a favorite in our house! We’ve been using this recipe for over a year now and it just seems better every time we have it! I don’t add apples to it, but sometimes will add spinach if we have it on hand… I just put it in at the end before we add the cheese.

  4. Excellent flavor! I used one box of pasta 16 oz so increased broth by another cup and cream 1/4 cup. Also just used one whole can of Rotel. It was so good and not too heavy. I did not increase the sausage because one pound is enough. My husband loved it so much. Wonderful blend of flavors and it was not spicy or hot at all. Thank you for this recipe.

  5. I know this post is old but wanted to comment we LOVE this recipe! It is a regular for our family of 4! I think of it being a strange meld of flavors but we are fans! A more adult version of mac and cheese!

  6. Just tried this recipe and it was very tasty. I didn’t add the apples, but I added Spinach and wilted it when I added the garlic. My kids both enjoyed it. I used Rotel, Original, and next time I may use Mild as it was a little spicy, but was very good. This will be a recipe we fix again 🙂

  7. I made this recipe the other night and it was delicious! I was looking for anther recipe to use chicken sausage and this did the trick, love the granny smith apple in there, it added nice flavor. I used fire roasted diced tomatoes. I also added a little red wine. Served it with some roasted carrots. I’m definitely putting it in my monthly rotation, thanks Michael!

  8. I found this recipe when I was wondering what to do with a pound of pork sausage with French apple seasoning. It was absolutely delicious, but I had to add liquid several times during the cooking process, and it still stuck to the bottom of the pan.

  9. Made this tonight with some apple sausage my husband picked up from Costco. I wasn’t a huge fan, and felt it lacked seasoning. Just sort of one note.

    But that being said, I can’t tell if it’s because I’m not a huge fan of the sausage or the dish itself.

    If I were to try again, I’d likely cook the pasta separate and make an actual cheese sauce separate.

    It was an okay weeknight meal. My kids wouldn’t touch it.

  10. This is so delicious!! I forgot to take chicken out to thaw and only had chicken apple sausage available. I stumbled across this recipe and I’m so glad I did. I had to substitute a lot to make it work and it’s still amazing. My kids are eating this up and my husband too. Thank you for this one pot wonder!
