One Pot Chicken Apple Sausage Pasta

One pot pasta dishes have been a recent favorite around here. I don't have as much time to cook with a toddler getting into everything and an infant who likes to be held a lot during dinner time. This particular dinner doesn't have much prep time, cooked in less than a half hour and was enjoyed by the entire family (including the toddler and my parents.) There wasn't any left over but if there was I'm sure it would have been just as good the next day for lunch. Enjoy! 


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 package chicken apple sausage, sliced (about 1lb)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 apple, chopped
2 cups chicken broth
1 (14.5 oz) can of diced tomatoes 
1/2 cup heavy cream
10 ounces penne pasta 
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
sliced green onions for garnish 
salt and pepper to taste
1. In a large skilled cook the sausage on medium high heat, until brown. 
2. Add in garlic and apples, cook for another minute.  
3. Once apples and garlic are cooked, add in chicken broth, tomatoes, cream, pasta, salt and pepper. Stir and bring to a boil. Once it's at a boil, reduce heat to medium low. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes or until pasta is cooked. 
4. Once pasta is cooked, add the cheese. Stir to combine. 
5. Once cheese is melted remove from heat and add the green onions.
