Sausage Farfalle Skillet Dinner

Here’s a quick and easy skillet dinner. Although I make my own sauce and grate my own cheese, you can use a jarred sauce and shredded cheese. I cook the dish in 25 minutes using my Kitchen Craft Electric Skillet, but you can adapt the recipe for baking in the oven.


Sausage Farfalle Skillet Dinner
Serves 4


  • 1 package chicken sausage (Italian Style)
  • 2 cups dried farfalle pasta (Bowties) or your choice
  • 16 oz. low sodium tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 yellow onion, quartered
  • 1 tsp. dried Italian seasonings
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 cups shredded Italian cheese (or Parmesan, Mozzarella mix)


  1. Preheat electric skillet to 225°
  2. Slice sausages into 1/4″ slices.
  3. In a blender (I use a Vitamix) combine all other ingredients except the pasta and cheese. Puree into a sauce.
  4. Cover bottom of skillet with sliced sausage. Layer farfalle pasta on top the sausage. Then pour the sauce over the layers, completely covering the pasta.
  5. Cover and cook 20 minutes.
  6. Lift lid, stir layers, then cover with the shredded cheeses. Cover and reduce heat to its lowest setting.
  7. Cook an additional 5 minutes then serve.
