yummy LOW FAT sub: white sauce with 1% milk. Heat 2 Tbsp butter, 2 Tbsp of flour and stir on low heat. Add 1 c of milk slowly. It's creamy enough. We also added shrimp at the end and it was very tasty. Read More

This is one of my favourite recipes to make but I've made some changes to suit my tastes. Instead of sweet sausage (which works great) I used hot italian sausage. The pasta I chose was fresh fettucini. A couple shakes of red pepper flakes made it just spicy enough to avoid ruining the other flavors. I also added some fresh ripped basil in right near the end to brighten up the peas a bit. Try it out! Hey I see njmom thinks like I do! Amen on that basil at the end. Read More

Very good when followed exactly. Delicious and creamy. To make it more alfredo-like, add the Parmesan cheese to cream sauce before pouring over pasta. Either way, it's delicious! Read More

Yum. Didn't have cream so I made a roux using 2 Tbs. fat from mild Italian sausage and 2 Tbs. flour then used milk. It was perfect! And very "creamy". Read More

This was so good! I did as someone else suggested and after the sausage and peas were ready, added a bit of flour and then milk to thicken it up and cut the fat. I did add some heavy cream a bit later, but only maybe 1/2 cup. My whole family really enjoyed this meal, including a husband, brother-in-law and 3 and 1 year old boys. Read More

This dish was neither complex nor difficult but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t incredibly delicious and satisfying. I deviated from the recipe somewhat, deglazing the pan with a good glug of white wine, then reducing it almost completely before adding the cream. Also, the peas needn’t be cooked for five minutes – tossing them in just before serving is all they need. The pasta does absorb a lot of the sauce, but rather than adding more cream I simply added some reserved pasta cooking water. “Super Easy Spinach and Red Pepper Salad” completed the meal. Our bellies were pleased. Read More

Fast Easy and Delisious! I made this in a pinch! I always have Italian Sausage in the Freezer and I always have Pasta on hand for those nights when I don't feel like "cooking". I was looking for something different to do with pasta and sausage and I found this a nice white sauce. We use spicy sausage we love the kick! Everyone especially my husband loved it. I love it especially because in 20 minutes I have a complete meal. Add bread w/ butter and a salad if you like. Read More

I made this for my family last night and it was a huge hit! I used 1 cup of heavy cream & 1/2 cup of half & half. I also used previous suggestions and added ground pepper and fresh basil at the end. Definitely a keeper! Read More
