I don’t let anything go to waste. In my last post I used sausage. Since I had some leftover, I froze it for a day when I didn’t feel like making anything complicated. Not that I ever make anything complicated and not that the day came too much later.  This is a somewhat simplified version of sausage Alfredo pasta.

Ingredients: 1/2 lb penne pasta, 3 spicy sausages casings removed and diced(the sausage not the casings), 2 cloves minced garlic, 1/2 cup cream, 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt and pepper to season

Begin by cooking the pasta to al dente. To a pan, on medium heat with olive oil, add sausage.

Cook until the sausage browns and add garlic, salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes before pouring in the cream.

Cook for 5 minutes and add 1/2 cup of cheese (leave the other 1/2 cup aside). Let the sauce thicken for another 5 minutes. Add sauce and butter to the pasta.

Mix together and top with the remaining cheese
