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.

I didn't find this recipe to be creamy and I used heavy cream. It was too watery for my taste.

This is one of my favourite recipes to make, but I've made some changes to suit my tastes.<br><br> 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.<br><br> Try it out!<br><br> Hey, I see njmom thinks like I do! Amen on that basil at the end.

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!

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.

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".

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.

Very easy, very simple, and VERY tasty! I cut the recipe in half for just myself (with some leftovers for lunches) and added several heavy shakes of Penzey's Aleppo pepper for a bit of "bite". You could use half hot Italian sausage with half sweet Italian sausage for the same effect.
