Turkey Sausage Fettuccine Alfredo
This dish is a pantry meal find at it’s finest! When I am planning out my menu, I like to do a few things. First, I take inventory of what I have in my pantry, next I take inventory of what I have in my freezer. I try to build meals only using the meat I have on hand and the bulk of what I have in my pantry. This avoids food piling up that never gets used as well as saves me money because I am not buying tons of ingredients for each dish.
This past week I noticed that I have a lot of different sausage from Johnsonville in my freezer which included fully cooked Turkey Sausage. I started to rack my brain to come up with ways to use the sausage with what I had on hand which was fettuccine noodles, so instead of adding the traditional chicken to the Fettuccine Alfredo, I mixed it up with Turkey Sausage!
It came out tasting delicious and was a nice change to our usual chicken!
- 1 Package Fully Cooked Turkey Sausage
- 1 16oz Package Fettuccine Pasta Noodles (I use Tinkyada Gluten Free.)
- 1/2 Cup Warmed Peas (I use frozen then warm them in microwave.)
- 1 8oz Block of Cream Cheese, softened
- 1 Tbsp Butter
- 1 Cup Milk
- 1 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
- Garlic Salt to Taste
Begin by warming up the Turkey Sausage as according to the package, then slice the sausage up and set aside.
Cook the Fettuccine noodles as according package, then drain.
While they are in the strainer, in the warmed up stock pot that the pasta was cooked in add in the cream cheese, butter, milk, and cheese. Keep the heat on medium and continue stirring this until it is well mixed and creamy.
Once it is fully mixed and creamy, add the pasta, sausage, and peas. Mix this well.
Add garlic salt to taste typically 1-2 Tsp.
Garnish with a little more Parmesan Cheese and serve!
Note: If you are gluten free, I used Tinkyada Fettuccine Pasta.
