4 ingredients and one pan! That’s all you need for this comforting and nourishing skillet meal. Made with Italian chicken sausage, cannellini beans, kale, and vodka sauce.

This meal could not be easier to make! The only thing you have to chop is the kale- that’s it!! It’s simple, high in protein and fiber, and so cozy. Plus, it makes for the perfect meal for dipping a crusty piece of buttery sourdough into 😉

This one pan meal is:

  • Gluten free
  • High protein
  • High fiber
  • 4 main ingredients
  • Can be made dairy free (just skip the burrata and use a dairy free vodka sauce!)

I love this vodka sauce skillet SO much, and I think you guys are really going to love this one too. I can’t wait to hear what you think if you make this one! Enjoy! xo

    This looks delicious. Thoughts on swapping the burrata for ricotta?

  2. Grace C. says:

    This recipe was AMAZING! So easy to make, delicious, and both filling + relatively healthy. It is definitely even better with sourdough, but tasted very delicious on its own as well! Just as easy to make as the directions say (and I even hand-ripped the kale instead of chopping, which was even easier), and I’ll definitely be adding it to my rotation.

    Absolutely loved this recipe. Very easy to make and delicious and filling! I substituted with ricotta cheese and baby spinach, and it was great. Excited to try more of your recipes 🙂
