Cheesy Salsa Pasta

Apparently tonight’s dinner was an absolute home run. The husband said I could make this any time I want and he went back for seconds, not to mention nummy comments while he was eating. The sauce part of it only took as long as getting the water to boil and pasta cooked. You can adjust the spicy factor by using hotter or mild salsa. You could use just regular ground beef or turkey, but the sausage adds an extra layer of flavor (without any extra work).

6 oz uncooked pasta
1/2 pound turkey sausage
1/4 cup fat free cream cheese
3/4 shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup salsa

Cook the pasta according to the directions.
Cook the sausage in a large pan. Stir in the cream and cheddar cheeses. When it’s mostly melted add the pasta and salsa, stir until everything is well coated.
