This meal couldn’t make dinnertime simpler! Not only is Kielbasa Bow Tie Skillet a real crowd-pleaser, it comes together in just one pan. It freezes and reheats beautifully, too, so you’ll want to fix extras for a fast entree later. “My daughters are picky eaters,” says Lori Daniels of Beverly, West Virginia, “but this reminds them of macaroni and cheese. I toss in their favorite veggies and they gobble it up!”

I also used fresh mushrooms. It was a delicious and hearty meal.

I lightened it up a bit by using turkey smoked sausage and 2% milk. As suggested by others, I doubled the sauce ingredients (butter, milk, cornstarch and cheese) and was glad I did. I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I also replaced the peas with steamed brocolli florets because not many in my house care for peas. Put in a bit of Mrs. Dash regular. I also saved a bit of the pasta water to add while mixing the sauce and pasta. Honestly, I wasn't sure how all these ingredients would taste when combined, but it was hearty and delicious.

All I can say is this is FABULOUS!!!! I wouldn't change a thing besides adding 8oz of fresh mushrooms instead of the 4.5 oz jar of mushrooms and add a 1/4 cup more shredded cheddar cheese! This is a GREAT RECIPE and QUICK ONE!!!!!!
