Summer Skillet Pasta

Cheesy baked pasta with sauteed garlicky summer vegetables and andouille sausage! Even your picky eaters will gobble this right up!

So Ben looks at this picture this morning and asks, “What’s that?”

Me: It’s a summer pasta skillet.

Him: So is that rice on top?

Me: No, it’s cheese. Does it really look like rice?

Him: I don’t know. I don’t have my contacts on right now.

So if anyone else was wondering, I would like to clarify that this is not rice. It’s in fact, cheesy, melted goodness right on top. Something way better than said rice.

And, best of all, we get to use up all of our summer veggies in this! Zucchini, squash, bell peppers, onions – add them all right in! It pairs perfectly with the smoky andouille sausage but you can easily omit if you want to keep this strictly vegetarian.

Just remember to top this off with mozzarella cheese, not rice.
