  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink; drain.
  • 2
    Stir in uncooked Pasta, Sauce Mix and remaining ingredients except cheese and additional chili powder. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently.
  • 3
    Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat. Spoon into individual serving bowls; sprinkle with cheese and additional chili powder.

  • Make this tame dish wild by using 1 pound of hot or spicy pork sausage and substituting 1/4 cup cayenne pepper sauce (hot sauce) for the chili powder. Your taste buds will definitely be tickled!
  • You’ll want to use a 12-inch skillet for this recipe because of the amount of ingredients. If you don’t have a skillet that large, use a 4- or 5-quart Dutch oven.
