  • Stir in the tomatoes, black-eyed peas, and chicken broth. Cover the skillet and reduce heat to medium-low. Let the mixture simmer until the vegetables are tender and the meat is thoroughly cooked, stirring occasionally, 18 to 20 minutes. Mix in the broken spaghetti and let the mixture cook until the pasta is tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Ladle into a heated serving bowl and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

I made this tonight for a special meal for my husband. The flavoring was very good but I was surprised at just how much pasta was in this dish. I might try customizing it with more sausage and celery but overall it was very warm very spicy and an excellent blend. Very filling. I used regular hot sausage. The seasoning was perfect. I made garlic bread to go with it which fit nicely. Thanks for the holiday submission! Read More

This was really good! The only thing I changed was adding a small can of tomato sauce to the broth because I knew my husband wouldn't like the tomato chunks and then a little bit of pepper. Read More

This is a great recipe for something fast, healthy, tasty, and inexpensive. It was very tasty, though not AMAZING, if you know what I mean. I will certainly be making it again, though. I added some kale I had so as to have a green vegetable in the meal, and it went well. Be sure you have a big enough skillet! This recipe really does have 6 servings. Read More

DELICIOUS! I substituted hot Italian venison sausage for the turkey sausage but otherwise followed the recipe as is. It was fantastic and the leftovers were even better! Disregard the other reviews that say it is just okay and give it a try; you won't be sorry!! Read More

This recipe was pretty good but I know why it calls for low sodium broth. Too salty... Oops. Read More

Really delicious with a 6 oz can of tomato paste & mild sausage! I used about half the pasta recommended & the dish turned out really well. Read More

Very good! I used regular Hot Italian Sausage which spiced it up a bit. Good way to get those New year's Black Eyed Peas. Read More

This is a really good recipe. I did not give it five stars because that rating should be saved for a knock your socks off dish. It had good flavor and I liked the components of this dish. Read More
