2 out of 5
- 1 lb. Nugget Markets' Fresh To Market Mild Italian Sausage (about 3 links)
- 2 red bell peppers, diced medium
- 1 yellow onion, diced medium
- ½ lb. button mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1½ teaspoons Italian seasoning
- ½ cup parsley
- ½ lemon, juiced
- 1 jar Alfredo Sauce
- 1 jar Roasted Garlic Alfredo Sauce
- 1 lb. pasta (your choice)*
Sear sausage in a large stockpot; remove and set aside. Add olive oil to pot; sauté bell peppers, onion, mushrooms, garlic and Italian seasoning for about 6 minutes. Slice sausage into thin rounds, return to pot and cook an additional 6 minutes. Pour both Classico sauces into pot; add parsley and lemon juice. Reduce heat to low; simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a separate pot, bring lightly salted water to a boil. Cook 1 lb. of pasta to al dente. Strain; pour pasta into stewed sausage and alfredo and simmer together for 4-5 minutes.
*Our pasta of choice is a cut called radiatori. It has deep ridges, which are perfect for holding sauce. Any pasta cut will do though!
Serve with garlic bread and a light Caesar salad on the side.
