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!”

"Made this for dinner and everyone liked. It was simple to prepare. I like to cook kielbasa sausage and look for recipes that feature it. I left out the snow peas since I didn't have. For some reason mine came out way saucier than the picture. Except for the snow peas followed the directions. Not sure if I needed more cornstarch but it just gave it more of a pasta dish with sauce feel for me."

"This was a little bland for us. I added some chopped pimiento in with the peas and cheese to add color and a little more flavor. I probably won't be making this again as is."

"Loved this recipe......I had no snow peas so I used frozen broccoli instead.....and I used grated parmesan cheese in place of the cheddar cheese b/c I thought it sounded better. My 3 young children (5 yrs. and under) loved this as well. That's always a surefire sign it's good. Will definitely make it again....."
