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.

    I realize this is a silly question but am I adding the pasta cooked or is it cooking in the liquids I have added to the pan? Thanks!

  • Al at

    I’ve never posted a comment on any blog, but I had to comment on this recipe. This has become one of my go to recipes. It’s a little sweet, a little spicy, and perfect for when I’m craving comfort food!
    The recipe by itself is great, but I occasionally add all the pasta with a little extra of both liquids and tons of cheese 🙂

  • Robin Blaney at

    I made this using brussell sprouts, no apple, and cheddar instead of Jack. OMG it was soooo good. A huge hit!

  • Jessica at

    This dish is great! I didn’t have half of the ingredients so I had to swap a few ingredients and it still turned out great! I made it with whole wheat penne, gala Apple, yellow bell pepper and a bit of chipotle in adobo. I also didn’t have heavy cream so I used milk and a bit of cream cheese to thicken it up. Thanks for the recipe!

  • Michelle Green at

    I made this for dinner and OMG this was delicious.

  • Kris in FL at

    I made as written and there was too much pasta and it was too much work. I won’t bother again.

      Sorry it didn’t work out for you.

    I made this one night for my family. Unfortunately, my young boys wouldn’t eat it, but they are both picky eaters. I really liked it, with the exception of the sausage. I’m not big on sausage to begin with, and just didn’t really like the brand that I bought. My mother liked it, except for the kick from the tomatoes with chilis (she’s very sensitive to spice). Overall I think it’s a great recipe. I plan to try it again using a different sausage and maybe just regular canned tomatoes. I think I will definitely miss the chilis, but we’ll see!

    Just made this tonight. AWESOME!! I used beef smoked sausage (it was what was in the fridge) and pepper jack in place of the Monterey Jack. Will absolutely make this again. Thank you for sharing.

      Glad you enjoyed it!! Thanks!

    I’ve been looking at the picture of this recipe for quite some time and finally decided to make it today and it was fantastic! Thank you for posting the recipe. I will definitely pass it along

  • Julie at

    I love that comment about time! That was so funny! Also good looking dish. Nice website too. Good luck with the fall decor. I also tend to like country looking fall decor but it doesn’t match with my style either. Maybe it’s just a fall thing!

  • Melissa Tawney at

    Delicious! Made this last night using Sprouts French apple chicken sausage. Definitely a keeper on my dinner menu.


    Just made this and it was INCREDIBLE!! I didn’t have the Granny Smith apple so I left that out, but it was still amazing. I can’t wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I will make this again and again! Thanks!

  • nancy @ owen's olivia at

    Wow! This was amazing!!! I had to substitute for what I had on hand. Ultimate comfort food and definite recipe keeper.

    Subbed the apple with a red pepper, the pasta for rotini pasta, and the monterey jack with mozzarella.

    Thank you!

  • Amber DeGrace at

    I made this last night, as spelled out in your recipe. And it was fab! I used D’Artagnan chicken and apple sausage. So. Good. Cheers!

  • Babi at

    Thank you for this delicious recipe! I’m making it for the second time, my family loved it! It’s so simple and easy and so yummy! This one will definitely go in our family favorites!

  • Eileen at

    I use Aidells chicken apple sausage for quality; the Wacky Mac colorful spirals for fun; potato peeled strips of zucchini for healthiness; a small fresh diced jalapeno pepper in the saute mix for more spice; and I skip the apple. I DON’T skip the real cream 🙂

  • Nikki at

    Thank you for this recipe! It looked wonderful, and I pinned it and showed it to my boyfriend. We decided to make it last night and it smelled amazing cooking, and he fell into a happy food coma after eating it- That’s a sign of success in our house!

    We used a very flat, shallow pan and ended up needing to add more broth a few times- I’m wondering if it was the shape of pan that made a difference- what kind of pan do you use? We started lusting over it when we read the recipe.

    I think this will be a great recipe to teach his son, as well, because most ingredients are ones at home already, and though there is some prep, it really is minimal when you consider HOW MUCH FOOD this makes! We have leftovers for miles!
    I think adding frozen (or fresh) peas to this dish would add some good flavor, if you want to add a vegetable in there. Maybe omit the apple and add peas if it’s too sweet for you, but I think we will just add them over here 🙂

    Thank you again- good, solid comfort food and the only cleanup being the cutting board, knife, and pot- perfect. <3
