Sunday night SP asked for fettuccine alfredo with sausage and I decided to add some onions and peas for color and a veggie component:
I kinda threw this together so I was surprised by how well it turned out. I started by browning the sausage in the pan, then adding sliced onion and cooking it until it was soft. I mixed 1 cup of heavy cream with 1 cup half-and-half and added it to the pan with salt and pepper. While that reduced the fettuccine cooked. Right before I added the pasta to the pan I threw in 1 cup of frozen peas and 1/2 cup grated cheese, then tossed the pasta with the sauce to coat. It was rich and creamy, but not too heavy because of the peas. And the hot sausage was perfect, with just a little kick and great sausage flavor.
