One Pot Chicken Sausage & Kale Pasta

I love this concept of one pot meals! Have you had my One-Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta?? This is another one pot wonder we love! I am all for fewer dishes to wash after dinner!

Little Luca our newest baby is 2 months now and honestly, I feel like I have been up for 2 months🤣😴. My blog has truly saved my life these past few months. Look at recipes decide what I’m making for dinner and have the groceries delivered. I tackled grocery shopping with 2 babies a few weeks ago and well the baby lost it, I was in the check out Isla didn’t want to sit. I could not even hear myself think, I’m positive most people were staring… And I was just sweating from holding the baby and a little bit of embarrassment 🤯. Thus, I stick to grocery delivery unless I absolutely have to hit Trader Joe’s.

One Pot Chicken Sausage & Kale Pasta

What I love most about this One Pot Chicken Sausage & Kale Pasta aside from being delicious is truly the idea of only one pot to wash! I tell you dishes are my least favorite part of the job!! Unfortunately, it’s just not feasible to hire a dishwasher full time haha.

What Pasta Is Best For One Pot Pasta

Any kind of pasta will work! So feel free to use your favorite. We are huge fans of penne pasta around here. I love short pasta with holes because it makes up the saucy flavor. Longer pasta like spaghetti or linguini are also great in one pot pasta and tend to cook a few minutes faster.

Can I Replace Kale?

Yes, I like kale I love the taste, always have! My kids can be iffy about it, however, spinach would be a great substitute for the kale in this one pot pasta recipe.

How To Make One Pot Pasta

In a large pot add the pasta, crushed tomatoes, pesto, onion, garlic seasonings, sausage, and kale. Pout over chicken broth and stir combining ingredients. Over high heat bring pasta to a boil. Boil and stir frequently till broth is almost all evaporated, 12 minutes. Turn heat off and continue to stir for about 5 more minutes. Serve with parmesan and fresh basil.
