Not only is this kielbasa pasta skillet a real crowd-pleaser, it comes together in just one pan. My daughters are picky eaters, but this reminds them of macaroni and cheese. I toss in their favorite veggies and they gobble it up! It freezes and reheats beautifully, too, so you’ll want to fix extras for a fast entree later. —Lori Daniels, Beverly, West Virginia
