For this one pot pasta recipe I used polish from Klement’s Sausage Company. They have a variety of products that I love. I’ve served their summer sausage at parties and we love making their Bratwurst on the grill in the summer.

For this cheesy polish and peppers one pot pasta recipe I used the Klement’s Polish smoked polish sausage variety. The flavor is robust and delicious and lends the perfect flavor to this one pot pasta dish.

Begin by slicing the polish. I sliced mine at an angle so the surface of the sliced polish was long. Then heat olive oil in a large pan (I used this one) over medium high heat and add polish. Cook until both sides of the polish are browned.

Then add garlic, pepper, onions, peppers, broth, tomatoes, milk and pasta. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium low and cover. Boil for 10 minutes or until pasta is al dente.

      1. Hey, I noticed I was having the same issue when I was cooking so I put a lid on mine and checked it every couple minutes to stir. It cooked perfectly!

        The temperature was high enough to create the liquid to have steam come off it so it would cook the noodles that were poking out of the liquid as well.

        If your pan/ pot doesn’t have a lid you can always use a pizza pan, Or a cookie sheet just make sure you put on oven mitts 🙂

  1. Yummy! We love polish sausage for dinner and this recipes sounds amazing. Going to add it to the menu for next week!

  2. What a great recipe. I have some polish sausage in the fridge. I will have to make this.

  3. I love this recipe and think it looks so delicious and I want to make this recipe for the family!

  4. Wow, this cooked amazingly. It was such a delicious dish I cannot wait to cook it again. The flavor was excellent.

      1. I cant eat peppers so leaving those out but what do you think about adding bacon in the mix? does this end up soupy with the broth milk and tomatoes?

  5. Amazing flavor! We used Andouille as we wanted some heat. Also sautéed the pepper flakes(more than called for) with the sausage. Loved it!
