A luscious sauce of butter, heavy cream and Locatella or Parmesan cheese is made hearty with sweet Italian sausage. Served over fettuccini noodles, this recipe makes two large or three small servings.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 8 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
- 1/2 pound sweet Italian sausage, casing removed
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 5/8 cup Locatella cheese
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
In a large pot with boiling salted water cook fettuccini until al dente. Drain.
In a large skillet cook sausage until brown. Drain and set aside.
To make the Alfredo sauce, melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Add heavy cream and Locatella cheese and cook, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a soft boil. If desired, add parsley.
Pour Alfredo sauce over fettuccini noodles and top with the cooked sausage.
Serve immediately as sauce will separate upon cooling.
