"This is a one of my go-to options when feeding a large group on a small budget. Add in some bread sticks and a nice salad and this can feed 10 to 12 people for under $40."

  1. Cook the Italian sausages in a skillet over high heat, until lightly brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Discard excess grease.
  2. Combine Alfredo sauce, milk, and habanero pepper in the same skillet. Cook over medium heat until bubbly, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to a simmer and add 1/2 cup pepper Jack cheese. Cover and cook sauce until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain.
  4. Pour sauce over pasta; garnish with remaining pepper Jack cheese, diced tomatoes, and green onions.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • The heat in the sauce all hinges on the size and quality of the habanero peppers. I have added an extra 1/2 pepper if guests like extra heat but this can unbalance the dish to nothing but heat.
  • The sauce can also be prepared in the slow cooker on Low, for about 3 hours.
  • You can replace the mild Italian sausage with any sausage of your preference.
  • You can substitute milk with heavy whipping cream.
