This skillet meal was born out of necessity on a busy weeknight. I pulled together a package of turkey sausage links, lasagna noodles and a bag of frozen peas and went to work. —Amy Freeze, Avon Park, Florida

  • 8 ounces uncooked lasagna noodles (about 10 noodles), broken into 2-in. pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 Italian turkey sausage links (about 1 pound), casings removed

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream

  1. Cook broken noodles according to package directions for al dente. Drain; rinse with water and drain again. Toss with oil to coat.
