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.

    This was so good! My whole family gobbled it up. Thank you so much.

    would like to make your Chicken Apple Sausage Pasta one pan dish but I have never heard of Chicken Apple Sausage. Can I just substitute regular sausage and will it taste the same.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Sherry, I really like the Chicken Apple Sausage in this recipe. You can certainly make any substitutions however I would expect it to change the taste. Surprising, Chicken Apple Sausage is available in most places today. In fact, I got mine at Walmart!

      Hope that helps.

      xo Michael

    Made this for dinner last night and it is delicious! I used mild Rotel for the tomatoes, but for me it is still very spicy. I recommend adding, for that step, that if people are sensitive to spicy foods they need to use just plain tomatoes or they can drain the juice which has a lot of the heat, and make up for it with 1/2 c. more chicken stock. I plain to drain the juice next time, but I will be making this again. 🙂

    Tried this tonight and it’s super yummy! I thought I had diced tomatoes so o skipped buying them at the store. Come home to find a 15oz can of tomato sauce so I used that instead plus a small can of green chiles. Still yummy!

  • Kristy at

    Love Love Love! I added some spinach to it for veggies for my kiddos! They loved it!!!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Great idea Kristy! I’ll have to try that.

      xo Michael

  • Melissa at

    I made this tonight and it is delicious! Thank you so much for sharing!

  • Jen at

    Thanks for the delicious recipe Michael! The chicken apple sausage is so good. My boyfriend and I had two servings each at dinner last night and I had it for lunch today. Thanks again!

  • Jennifer at

    All I can say is WOW. This dish is absolutely AMAZING! If you’re hesitating on making this, JUST DO IT (as Nike would say). The only negative thing I have to say is regarding the instructions. The recipe calls for 1 (14.5 oz) can of tomatoes and green chilies but no where in the directions does it say to put the green chilies in, so I got a little confused. I had initially bought 1 (14.5 oz can) of diced tomatoes as well as 1 (14.5 oz) can of diced green chilies but I only used half of each and it turned out PERFECT!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe 🙂

  • Tammy at

    Ever since I read this post, I’ve been thinking about this dish. Finally made it tonight, and it was FABULOUS. My husband can’t stop talking about it.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      You are so welcome, Tammy! I’m glad you both loved it so much. It’s easily become one of my favorites too!

      xo Michael

    Made this tonight. Subbed half and half for heavy cream and didn’t add the apple because I knew my husband wouldn’t like it. Glad I didn’t add though, because it was the perfect amount of sweet with a little spice. Apple would have messed with that balance in my opinion. But loved this new twist on one pot pasta! Thanks 🙂

  • Anjie Behunin at

    Thank you SO much for sharing this! We used this recipe for a One Pot Cook Off at our camp out this weekend and….. WE WON! It was so delicious, even my picky 11 year old son wants me to make it again at home. All of the flavors go together SO nicely, even those that think the apple is a weird ingredient loved it!

    Thanks again Michael!

  • Patty at

    p.s. It’s not 4am in California! Lol

  • Patty at

    I’m making this dish right now! I substituted half & half for the heavy cream, so I’ll let you know. What size is you pan Michael? I need to invest in a nice big pan like yours!

    • Susan Zabolotzky at

      Great one pot recipe. I loved the sweet and savory combination. Plus it was done in under 45 minutes!

    • Tracy Lynn Smiles at

      How did subbing half and half for cream work out?

      • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

        It should be a fine substitute. It will just be a touch less creamy.

        xo Michael

  • Trish at

    Forgot to say…I used Gluten-free fusilli pasta and it worked beautifully. 2

  • Trish at

    Great recipe! I made this tonight. I forgot to add the cheese, but it was really tasty without it. Next time I’m going to try adding spinach &/or artichoke hearts. And maybe swap greek yogurt for the cream….or not 😉
    Quick, easy, tasty and one dirty pan…that’s a keeper recipe! Thanks!

    Oh my gosh this post made me lol – not because of your stress (not fun) – but I too cannot be trusted to make pasta too often, I tend to eat it ALL! But this looks so ridiculously delish, I’ve definitely just printed this off to try this week- thanks for sharing, and can’t wait to see your home tour! XO, D

  • April was in CT now CA at

    • Mary at

      SO GOOD!! It is better than it looks and so easy.
      Tons of flavor. I used fire roasted tomatoes with green chili’s and gives it some kick.
