Quick Italian Skillet Dinner Reviews

  • This was delicious and super easy/fast. I pretty much followed the recipe as written, but I doubled it. I used a pound of Bob Evans italian sausage and a ring of Oscar Meyer selects italian herb "kielbasa style" sausage (I sliced it). I only had one can of crushed tomatoes, and since I doubled the recipe, I added a few fresh sliced tomatoes. I also threw in a little garlic, oregano, and basil. Super GREAT meal, and I my men loved it Cheers to the recipe contributor

  • Was super simple and delicious I added a couple different spices like pepper,garlic powder,and oregano leaves which made it great. I also let the cheese melt stirred it in and then put a little more on top to melt. Would definitely make this dish again.

  • Pretty good and really quick to make. I left out the cheese and added some garlic powder for more flavor.I used a no sodium vegetable broth instead of tomato juice bc my husband has really bad heartburn and also regular rice. cooked the rice for 20 mins once I added it to the skillet. Followed the recipie, except I didnt use concentrated tomato juice. I cut the sausages before I cooked them so they turned into balls instead of slices-added more weight to each bowl.

  • I used chicken broth instead of concentrated tomato juice. I thought it was a good base recipe, but came out bland. It needs more spices in my opinion. I added 1/2 Tbs. Italian seasoning and it still needed something. Also, next time I would cook the sausage without slicing and remove it, serving the rice mixture as a side dish, with the sausages in one piece.

  • Good recipe. I added a tsp of italian seasoning and garlic powder after adding the juice. I cooked the rice 18 mins then added to the boiling mix and let simmer for 5 then stir add cheese and cover and let sit for another 5. Came out great. Adding this to my list of regulars.

  • Very Yummy, however next time I think I may add noddles instead of rice and also add in some cottage or ricotta cheese to make it like a skillet lasagna.

  • GOOD I used Smoked sausage (I despise fennel) added chicken broth, italian seasoning and garlic. A simple, mild dinner.

  • I made this for my family tonight followed the recipe but added a 1lb of ground beef also and used fire roasted diced tomatoes and added yellow and red peppers. My family loved it. Will make this again. One thing I found faster I cut the Italian sausages first then cooked them.

  • Absolutely amazing Made this for my grandmother on Mothers Day and the whole family loved it. Would definitely make it again

  • This was absolutely delicious. I made it exactly as it was written using low-sodium tomato juice and it was very easy and a great comfort dish. I think it would be good to add more veggies in the mix next time, but otherwise, Id leave it exactly as is Awesome.

  • Awesome dinner. everyone loves it. quick and easy

  • Aint nothing about this Italian but it sure does make one heck of a good dinner

  • This is now one of my automatic go tos for the nights idk what else to do, also is a family favorite from my 3, 5, 8, and husband year olds. We have a celiac house and its an actual flavorful and delightful meal compared to anything like it we would make from a box... if we made boxed foods.

  • Very tasty meal. I included red capsicum and diced middle bacon rasher. Used crushed tomatos , Campbells chicken stock and Arborio rice.

  • My kids and I really enjoyed it.. I will definitely add other spices because it was bland but it was delicious.. I will be making this again ??

  • Delicious. I added mushrooms and used fire roasted tomatoes. The fire tomatoes definitely added a good flavor

  • Made as per recipe. Everyone had seconds and daughter took leftovers as her work lunch the next day. And, you can really make it in about 30 minutes.

  • Used smoked sausage instead. Tasted great

  • My husband absolutely loves this recipe

  • Great recipe just as it is without any modifications.

  • Made minor changes , for lack of a few exact ingredients , otherwise, I followed the directions. I will make it again.

  • Was quick and easy to make and didnt require too many ingredients. Would make again.

  • I used rice-a-roni. it was the Bomb. it so good and easy.

  • I will make it again and try it with noodles instead of rice.

  • This was great, had to use regular rice and still turned out great

  • This recipe is great I have four stars because theres not enough seasoning. Like the other reviewers, Id recommend adding garlic, Italian seasoning, and even a bay leaf. Made again but Spanish style with black beans and chorizo

  • Such an easy recipe with awesome taste

  • My family and I loved it. No leftover for once all the kids ate more then one bowl. Quick and easy to make. And not very spendy. Will be making it again for sure.

  • I changed a couple things. All wheat penne( no rice) , yellow bell pepper ( not green ). Thankful that I had made soup a couple days ago and had some vegetable broth left. It was a very quick, filling, and very flavorful.

  • Fine as written but needed more spice. Added three cloves of garlic, basil and Italian seasoning. Made with small pasta the second time (cooked pasta al dente before adding to skillet and no addition of juice needed). Overall very good and definitely satisfying.

  • The family loved this. Followed the suggestion of the top reviewer and doubled the recipe, using the 2 different kinds of sausage and twice the juice and rice. Would definitely make again.

  • This is a really tasty and easy recipe, I did add chopped garlic, basil and oregano. I didnt have vegetable juice so used beef broth. I think next time I will use regular rice instead of quick rice and simmer it on low for a bit longer just to absorb some more of the liquid. This reheats really well and was just as tasty the second day.

  • Easy and delicious Plus it makes a LOT, and is great leftover too.

  • This has become one of my favorite dishes to make for my family. I buy the ground sausage to make it quicker. As my husband avoids carbs during the week and I dont care much for rice, I drain the tomatoes thoroughly and leave out the vegetable broth. I melt the cheese over the sausage and serve over garbanzo beans for my husband and elbow macaroni for me Quick, easy, and delicious.

  • Super easy to make. Made for two of us and had plenty for leftovers for dinner tomorrow

  • We loved this simple, fast recipe. I doubled the onion, added 3 minced garlic cloves, one whole minced jalapeo, and I added some Italian seasoning. We used par-boiled pasta instead in instead rice. Delicious.

  • The family loved this, called it a keeper. I used regular rice, cooked in vegetable broth before adding to the onion, garlic and sausage mixture, then added vegetable juice and dried oregano instead of tomato juice. I threw half a can of cannellini beans in, then after adding the cheese, I topped the dish with fresh spinach leaves and let sit until the cheese melted, then stirred the spinach and cheese into the dish.

  • Delicious I didnt add the onions because my dad cant have them. I also didnt put cheese on it but I put a bowl of cheese on the table because my sister cant have diary. I also didnt use the instant rice I used a healthier rice. It took longer to cook but it was totally worth it I noticed that only me and my sister (we are teens) were the only ones to put cheese on it. I served this recipe with a salad. VERY GOOD I will definitely make this again Everybody liked it

  • Not a huge fan of tomatoes, glad I took a gamble. It was delicious, added some crushed red pepper for a little more heat. It was a great dinner on a cold evening. Will definitely make this again. ??

  • Very good my family loved it

  • This was good. My family liked but did not love it. Well have it again but next time I will add something to give it a lil more zip. Super easy though, gotta love that

  • Subbed pre-chopped and frozen peppers and onions as well as subbed diced italian tomatoez

  • Pretty good

  • Wow SO DELICIOUS I added more rice (regular) and vegetable juice so it took longer to cook. The flavor really surprises you Its very tasty.

  • Made recipe as directed with two exceptionswhen the onions and peppers were nearly done, I added two cloves of fresh minced garlic. Then I added a teaspoon of Italian Seasoning to the sauce before bringing to a simmer.

  • Looks right

  • Had to make a few substitutions based on what was on hand, but still turned out tasty. English bangers (sausage), medium and sharp cheddar instead of mozarella, and substituted the vegetable juice with chicken broth. Also had to add some olive oil when sauteeing the veg because bangers dont leave much grease. In the end, was a hit

  • Ive made this for years So glad its on here. I had lost my recipe years ago. Best if you get Italian sausage, but Ive used hamburger and ground turkey.

  • It was delicious, I used penne pasta instead.

  • I forgot to buy rice, so I used the half box of macaroni that I had. I cooked the macaroni separately and added it right before the cheese. I also added some basil and let it sit for about 5 minutes or so to let the macaroni soak up some of the sauce.

  • This was delicious I had to use turkey Italian sausage because thats what I had at the time. It was quick, easy, and my Dad and I loved it.

  • Delicious and super easy. I added some Italian seasoning fresh chopped basil towards the end.

  • Very good and tasty. Will definitely make it a recipe to use often.

  • I followed this reciipe to a "tee" and it turned out great. didnt even add any spices although you probably could add some italian seasonings but to me it was delicious just the way it was prepared. thanks for the recipe.

  • I substituted the sausage for chicken due to personal preference. I would use less onions and cheese. The cheese makes it difficult to scoop into a bowl. There seemed to be too many onions. Otherwise, it was pretty tasty. All About Trends
