Creamy Sausage Alfredo Ingredients

The alfredo sauce is a mix of heavy cream and Parmesan cheese.

I added a little bit of Slap Ya Mama cajun seasoning.

My kids are not too keen on spicy foods but you could definitely add more.

I used penne pasta, but it would be wonderful with traditional fettuccine or your favorite pasta.

Cook that Pasta

Truthfully, it’ll probably take you longer to cook the pasta than to whip up the sausage and sauce.

Follow the package directions to cook the pasta.

Make sure you drain the pasta well.


Saute that Sausage

Start by cutting your sausage into 1/4 inch pieces them saute them over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes.

Flip the pieces over a few times while cooking to heat all sides.

Make That Sauce

Add the heavy cream and spices then bring the mixture to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for about 5 minutes until the sauce begins to thicken.

The sauce will not be super thick at this point.

Add the Parmesan cheese. Now things will get really interesting as the sauce starts to thicken up.

Sausages Cooking in Cream Sauce

Mix in the cheese well then add in the drained pasta.

Stir to coat everything well and there you have it – a delicious, creamy Sausage Alfredo with Penne Pasta.


Dish of Sausage Alfredo

Serve with your favorite veggie or a green salad and a big ‘ol glass of iced tea.
