Kielbasa Pasta with Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausages

There's no doubt about it: Aiden and I love us a good plate of pasta! So much so that we can go an entire week with eating it for dinner and when Hazel Eyes Babe (HEB) comes over, he picks something else up for himself to eat because he's sick of pasta. (#TheNerve #HisLoss)

I started making pasta when I was first learning how to cook and I realized just how simple it was to prepare (read: short, sweet, and, most importantly, easy). Not to mention that pasta was one of the first dishes I made that Aiden actually ate. Like, all of it. (I know, I know... I was totally cooking-impaired and on a huge struggle bus. Sigh.)

I'm a better cook now, but, honestly, it's mostly because I've learned how to make a few signature dishes and figured out how to jazz 'em up every now and then. Real talk. I don't make anything that's picture-perfect or Pinterest-worthy or anything, but it's good. And yummy.

I like it, Aiden eats it, and that's all that matters.

Recently, I've been jazzing up my pasta by adding different types of meat to it. Like Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausages that's made with quality cuts of meat and slow-cooked with natural spices. And, needless to say, my Kielbasa Pasta is delicious, savory, and, most importantly, quick! (#ImJustSaying)
