This Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Rice Skillet is my go-to midweek dinner when the kids are back to school. I’m guessing if your family is like ours, the first few weeks after the kids go back to school are the most hectic while everyone gets used to the new routines and after school activities.

That’s why I make this one pan dinner weekly in the Fall. The kids love it. It’s super filling after a long day of school and activities and best of all, it only takes 30 minutes from start to table! I use Kielbasa sausage for this dish but you could use any sausage you like. It couldn’t be simpler – everything into the pan. Pour in the broth and there you have it! Read on to find out more.
