Alfredo Sausage and Vegetables

I wasn't sure how this would turn out and my hubby isn't a big fan of white sauces but it was Wonderful!  Will definitely be made again.  It had really good flavor and a ton of veggies.  Not the best thing in the world for you but it sure was good!

Alfredo Sausage and Vegetables

1 pkg smoked sausage
8 oz uncooked fettuccini
1/4 cup margarine/butter
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup matchstick-cut zucchini
1/2 cup matchstick-cut carrots
1/2 cup matchstick-cut red pepper
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 cup heavy cream or half and half
1/3 cup grated parmesan
2 Tb chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste

Cut sausage into 1/4 inch slices; set aside.  Cook fettuccini; drain and keep warm.

While cooking pasta, melt butter in large skillet over medium heat.  Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally 3 to 4 minutes or until onion is tender.  Increase heat to medium high; add sausage, zucchini, carrots, pepper.  Cook, stirring frequently, 5 to 6 minutes or until carrots are crisp tender.

Stir in peas and cream; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through, but do not boil.  Stir in parmesan, parsley, salt, and pepper.  Toss with drained fettuccini.  Sprinkle with additional parmesan.

**I left the peas out since my husband doesn't really like them and I added in some broccoli since I had some to use up.  I think next time I might add some asparagus as well.

  1. My husband picked your recipe out (on Tasty Tuesday)as one that he thinks looks good—and I agree!

    I posted the Peanutty Chocolate Banana Bread

  2. This looks really good! I bet you could substitute left-over ham in for the sausage. I wonder if my picky eaters would actually eat their veggies if I cover them in Alfredo sauce? I'd love to try!

  3. You could probably substitute a lot of things for the sausage, looks delicious.
