15 Minute Dinner Sausage Alfredo

15 Minute Dinner-Sausage Alfredo

Over the last few months I kept seeing a simple recipe for Sausage Alfredo by Hillshire Farms. I saw it over and over again in ads in the magazines we get at my husband’s office. The ingredients were so simple and it was a very quick and easy meal.

I kept thinking that I needed to try it. A few weeks ago, when I forgot to take the meat out of the freezer for the meal I had originally planned, I knew it was the perfect night to try it.

Of course I tweaked the recipe a little bit though. The original recipe called for all cream, and although I love cream, I thought I could cut down on it a little and use part milk. I also did not have quite the full amount of cream the recipe called for, so using milk seemed like a good solution. Cutting back on the cream worked fine.

The recipe suggested tomatoes as a stir in and I also thought tomatoes would be delicious added to the recipe. I knew it would make it more of a one dish meal that way. And again it worked great and we loved it. I let the tomatoes cook for a little bit, which made the dish not so pretty, but it was delicious. If you prefer you can just stir the tomatoes in at the end.

I love quick and easy pasta meals like this. We all need more get it on the table fast meals and this is a new favorite at our house.

  1. We usually eat a fairly low-carb diet, so I swapped a head of roasted cauliflower for the pasta. The first time I made it, it was basically soup so this time I only used the 1.5 cups of cream and no milk. Might depend on the size of the cauli head, but I probably could have cut back even more. Maybe the pasta absorbs some of the liquid? Anyway, just wanted to throw it out there in case you or any readers wanted to try it lower carb. It was delicious, so thanks for sharing!!

    • I am so glad that you found a way to make it low carb! I am guessing that the pasta absorbs quite a bit of liquid, but I am glad you found a way to make it work. Thanks for letting us know. I am sure other low carb readers will find it helpful.
