Goat Cheese Fettucini Alfredo with Italian Sausage


Sunday afternoon was rapidly passing and I asked the question to Z-man and Supergirl “What do you want for dinner?” and Supergirl said (emphatically) “FETTUCINI!” Z-man, with a characteristic teenage shrug did not seem to have an issue with this, so fettucini it was. I looked in the fridge to make sure I had everything (always a a concern on a Sunday afternoon) and found I had more than I expected so decided to spice it up a bit. What I ended up with was really fast and really good (so good that the kids inhaled it, always a good sign for a keeper recipe in my house).

I grabbed a package of Italian sausages and stripped the casings off


and tossed all the meat in a skillet to brown


While this is cooking grab a small saucepan and add 1 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup of butter (1 stick), 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan/romano cheese, 1 tablespoon of soft, unripened goat cheese and simmer on a medium heat for about 20 minutes until it starts to thicken.



Boil water and cook the pasta as directed (notice no pictures of this here at all because how exciting it is it to really see a picture of boiling water?!).

That’s pretty much it (I told you fast and easy!). To serve drain the pasta and place on a plate. Spread some of the sausage on top and then garnish with chopped tomato and sliced black olives and drizzle sauce over top of everything.
