Easy Sausage Alfredo

Here's a tasty dinner you can have on 
the table in 15 minutes. That's a good 
thing to have in your recipe file.

Ingredients:
1 pkg. Hillshire Farm® Smoked Sausage, 
diagonally cut into 1/4” slices
8-12 oz. pasta, cooked, drained
2 cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:
1. PREPARE pasta according to 
directions; drain and set aside.

2. SAUTE sausage in a large skillet over 
medium-high heat for 5 minutes, turning occasionally.

3. ADD cream and Cajun seasoning; bring to a 
boil. Reduce heat; simmer gently for 3-4 
minutes or until mixture begins to thicken. 
Remove from heat; stir in Parmesan cheese. 
Add pasta to the sauce.
STIR to combine.
I cut the recipe in half. Next time I'll make the 
whole recipe and have a little leftovers for
 lunch the next day. 

Tip:  For added fresh flavor, add 1 cup frozen green peas or broccoli in last 3-4 minutes of cooking pasta.  Continue as directed. Can also stir in chopped green onions and tomatoes before serving and sprinkle it all with fresh chopped parsley. Whatever you want.  Or just serve a green vegetable or salad on the side. 

Enjoy!
