Savory Kielbasa Pasta Skillet

I love simple recipes and today’s offering takes hardly any time at all to make and includes only a few ingredients which makes it a winner in my book.  Great any time of year for a hearty and delicious meal—it may be what’s for dinner tonight.

Savory Kielbasa Pasta Skillet


1 pound package of any type of Kielbasa

8 ounces pasta—any kind works fine—I used penne for this recipe

1 package of chicken flavor boost (I used Swanson’s)

chopped colored peppers (optional)

2 cups fresh kale, collard greens or spinach (any green will work—just add for different flavors)


1. Boil pasta until al dente.  Drain and set aside.

2. While pasta is boiling slice  kielbasa into 1 inch segments and cook in 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet until slightly browned on both sides.

3. Prepare greens by washing and chopping into bite sized pieces.  Drain and set aside. If using peppers wash and cut into chunks.

4. When kielbasa is cooked, add pasta and flavor packet to the skillet and heat through.

5. Add greens to the skillet as well peppers if including them. Stir and  let wilt  and cook a little bit before serving.

Easy and simple.  A winner in our house.


  1. I make a similar meal and it’s always comforting. I will try adding kale and peppers. Mmm. . .

  2. Sounds like a perfect Saturday night meal. Thank you for the inspiration…it’s a nice pick me up on Saturday morning to look forward to answering “What’s for dinner tonight?”

  3. Sounds yummy, and of course you can substitute almost any type of sausage for the kielbasa. Italian sweet or hot would work, as well as, (if I could spell it) anduei endui, ondouy, on Dasher on Dancer, on Donna… Well you know!

  4. I may have to try this one out on my Hubby!

  5. We love kielbasa so this is great! We love kielbasa on the BBQ so when weather is nice I think I might grill it.. 🙂

  6. Helen Brown says:

    It sounds easy to fix and good to eat.

  7. This looks so good! Since Kelvin is German, he’s always ready to eat sausage of any kind!

  8. Quick, easy, and tasty–my favorite kind of food.
