Fettuccine Alfredo with Sausage, Onions and Peas

I have a lot of hot Italian sausage in the freezer and no real idea of what to do with it so I looked back through my blog for inspiration. I found this post for Linguine with Sausage, Onions and Peas and decided that sounded like a good plan for dinner last night:


I got home late last night so this ended up being a great meal choice since it took almost no time at all to cook. I'd already cut the onion a few weeks ago when I made the caramelized onion orzo, so I didn't even have to chop anything. While the pasta water came to a boil I cooked the sausage and onions, then added cream and chicken stock, simmered that until it thickened, added about a cup of peas and the pasta and tossed to combine. I love easy meals like this.

  4. I love quick meals like this! I'd have to leave out the peas as my family isn't too crazy about them (I love them, though!). Looks delicious!

  9. Melissa - Fettuccine alfredo with sausage is a huge hit in our house, but I like this too because of the onions and peas. :)

    longhair - Ha! You crack me up.

    Patsyk - Quick meals are a huge hit in our house. I need to make more of them...even when I prep ingredients over the weekend I find it makes cooking during the week even more enjoyable.

    Judy - You're quite welcome! :)

    foodhoe - Sausage with alfredo is great...definitely give it a try sometime. Most restaurants will even make it for you if you ask. But make sure you get sliced sausage and not crumbled - it makes a world of difference!

    Maria - Definitely!

    RecipeGirl - Thanks! It's definitely a winner everytime.

  10. I`ll have to try this recipe sometime! It looks delicious and so simple.

    I always chop extra veggies and freeze them. It`s an amazing time saver, and if my boyfriend just wants a few green peppers for his eggs, it prevents waste!
