Creamy Sausage, Broccoli, Cauliflower and Pasta Skillet

This creamy sausage, broccoli, cauliflower, and pasta skillet dinner is easy and perfect for busy days.

Easy dinner recipe that uses simple and basic ingredients. It is also low carb, trim healthy mama s. If you have a some sausage waiting to be used up in your fridge or freezer and a bag of frozen broccoli and cauliflower, this is the recipe to make. It comes together quickly and is a one skillet dinner (except for the pot to cook the pasta).

Let’s talk pasta.

Use whatever pasta you are comfortable eating. I used dreamfields in this recipe. Zoodles or spaghetti squash would also be amazing. My family isn’t a fan of either of those. I like them and have made spaghetti squash many times for me. Sometimes my life is busy and getting a good on plan meal is about all I can get on the table. If your family likes zoodles or spaghetti squash, or any other on plan, low carb alternative, use those instead.

I used a bag of frozen cauliflower and broccoli but you can use what you have in your freezer, or what your family likes.

If your family absolutely refuses to eat cauliflower (I have one of those but he liked it in this recipe), use all broccoli. Costco has some great frozen veggie medleys as well. The sausage is the star of the dish. It really adds so much flavor. Whatever veggies you choose, it will taste great. If you need a new easy weeknight dinner, try this one, it might become your family’s new favorite.
