3 1/2 c 100% Fat free, low sodium chicken broth
1 c red pepper, diced
13 oz Hillshire Farm Turkey Smoked Sausage, chopped
2 c whole grain rotini, dry
2 c broccoli florets, uncooked, coarsely chopped
1 can 98% fat free broccoli cheese soup, undiluted
1/4 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1. Add turkey sausage into a large skillet over medium heat. Sautee until heated through.
2. Add red pepper and broccoli to sausage. Heat until vegetables are tender.
3. Pour in chicken broth and bring to a simmer (don’t bring to a full boil, it will boil over if broth gets too hot). Turn heat down to medium low and add dry rotini. Stir pasta in until completely covered by the liquid. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.
4. Remove lid, stir in salt, pepper, and broccoli cheese soup. Allow to simmer, uncovered, for an additional 5 minutes or until thickened. (if you like it thicker than the consistence after simmering for the additional 5 minutes, dissolve a tbsp of cornstarch in 2 tbsp of water in a small dish, then stir into rotini mixture and simmer for 5 minutes to thicken.)
