Fettuccine Alfredo with Sausage
When I make this Fettuccine Alfredo with Sausage, I use my Fried Sage Leaves in the recipe. (Link for Fried Sage Leaves is below) If you don’t have fresh sage leaves you could substitute fresh spinach leaves instead. Either one you use, this will turn out fabulous! I also used Hot Italian Sausage links and took the casing off. That way the sausage stayed in chunks.

Ingredients – (olive oil is for
frying the sage leaves)
In a large pot cook Fettuccine according
to the package directions.
Drain the pasta and put it back into the
hot pot with a lid to keep warm.
Cut the sausage links into pieces and
remove the casing.
In a large frying pan cook the sausage
over medium heat until no longer pink
inside and drain grease.
Add the cream, garlic, salt and pepper
to the sausage. Bring to a boil over
Pour the sausage and cream into the pasta.
Toss pasta until combined.
Add the sage leaves and Parmesan cheese.
Toss until the cheese is melted.
Serve and enjoy!
