dry fettuccine pasta
sweet Italian sausage, casing removed
heavy whipping cream
chopped fresh parsley
This is excellent, but very rich. I use double the pasta for the same amount of sauce, and usually use thin spaghetti instead of fettuccine. The cheese is Locatelli (not Locatella), which is Pecorino Romano. I have also made it using regular sausage rather than Italian sausage. I should also add that I now make the sauce in the microwave, just keeping an eye on it until it starts to boil. Comes out fine and saves a lot of time.
Um. I don't know about this. It was ok I guess, I sauteed some garlic with the sausage and then after tasting it I wound up adding parm and romano cheese. That was just personal prefrence, I like really bold flavors. I think it was the sausage that I wasn't fond of, strange texture maybe? I guess I am sticking with my normal recipe and using grilled chicken though. Thank you for the recipe anyway, it worked when I had completely forgotten to marinate chicken lol =)
I only gave this recipe 4 stars after reading the reviews and realizing how rich the sauce would be. After making a few changes, it now rates *5* (according to the family). Instead of 1 cup heavy cream, I used 1/2 cup of 2% milk and 1/2 cup of heavy cream. I also used only 1/4 cup of butter. (I made these changes for 2 reasons, one to reduce calories and the other to lighten the richness of the sauce). This turned out very creamy and light, but not heavy and rich!! No leftovers at my house. Will definately make again
great stuff... I couldn't find that particular cheese so I used a mix of romano, parmesan, and asiago cheeses... the cheese didn't really melt into the sauce but it still worked great for me... wonderful taste... i used cheese tortilini... everyone enjoyed it...
Made sauce with Heavy cream substitute taken from frugal living and it was fantastic....Will definitely use this again
Once I read that Locatella (Locatelli) is really Pecorino Romano, this was a snap, and unbelievably delicious. I used light cream instead of heavy whipping cream, and mixed in a bit of Parmesan with the Pecorino Romano. I also cooked some red pepper in with the sausage, and added some chopped asparagus to the pasta while it was cooking. Oh, and then I added some scallions in with the parsley, so I changed it up a bit but made it a bit healthier with the veggies. It was SOOOOO... absolutely delicious it's getting added to my "guest dinners" list!
I tried this recipe with the addition of shrimp and scallops...it was delicious!
