The writing/editing bug still has yet to bite me, but I remain hopeful that I will find the time and the motivation to get this last story completed (because I can assure you, it is made of total awesomeness). The good news is that I’ve had plenty of time to try new recipes and if you promise not to judge me for my blatant procrastination I will share one with you… alright who am I kidding, here you go.

Sausage and Spinach Alfredo

1 pkg. Jimmy Dean® Regular Flavor Pork Sausage Roll
1 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
½ cup dry white wine or chicken broth
½ pound fettuccine, cooked, drained
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1bag (6 ounces) baby spinach leaves (about 8 cups)
Cracked black pepper to taste

1. Cook sausage, onion, and garlic in stockpot over medium-high heat 8-10 minutes or until sausage is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently; drain. Return sausage mixture to pan.

2. Stir in wine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook 4-5 minutes or until most of the wine is cooked off.

3. Add pasta, cream and cheese; bring just to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 4-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is thickened. Remove from heat.

4. Stir in spinach; cover. Let stand 3 minutes. Season with pepper.

Cook’s Tips For best results, use grated, not shredded, Parmesan cheese. Prepare using 1 pkg. Jimmy Dean® Italian Flavor Pork Sausage Roll. Serve topped with additional Parmesan cheese.

Makes: 6 servings (about 1-1/4 cups each)
