Italian Turkey Sausage Skillet Dinner

This was one of those meals “on the fly,” put together last weekend at our little lake cottage filled with our six boys and our two dogs – Ellie, our adorable but snaggletoothed English bulldog and her brother, Buddy (Guy), the latte-colored and always very busy chihuahua that we adopted earlier this summer.

We’ve been using this great turkey Italian sausage for a while now.  I love the flavor and the non-greasy taste.  As an added bonus, each savory link contains a fraction of the fat content of pork sausage.   It goes very well on pizza, in spaghetti, in lasagna, and even as a breakfast side.

There is nothing like having a 17-year-old boy in the same kitchen with you to convey a sense of dire urgency while preparing a meal – of any kind.  Throw in some sauteed garlic and sausage on the stovetop and that urgency is heightened ten-fold, or so it seems.  As if he wasn’t enough of a virtual cattle prod, there was a chorus of echoes coming from the adjacent living room.

“Something smells good, Pa.”
“When are we eating?”
“What smells so good?”
“What time are we eating?”
“How much longer?”
“Do I smell hash browns?”

Comments from the dining room during lunch:

“This is great, Dad!”
“Can I have seconds?”
“What kind of meatballs are these?”
“Can you make this again?”

Go ahead, put this together.   I can’t wait to hear the comments that come your way.  Oh, and be sure to get back to us on those.  -Dan

    1. Hi Allyson, there’s a lot in this dish! You can add as many egg noodles as you like, but 6-8 oz should be sufficient to fill your skillet and the appetites of 8 people.
