Creamy Smoked Sausage Pasta

What do you need:

  • 1 cup pasta of your choice, cooked

  • 1 package (a little over 1/4 kg.) smoked turkey sausage, cut into 1/4-inch slices

  • 2 cups of heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning

In a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add heavy cream and Cajun seasoning then bring to a boil. When it boils, lower the heat and simmer until the mixture begins to thicken, about 3-4 minutes.

When done, transfer to a serving bowl. Add the Parmesan cheese, and then add the cooked pasta to the bowl. Stir, let cool a few minutes before serving.

Delicious spaghetti with butter

What do you need:

  • 1 cup spaghetti pasta, cooked

  • 1 can whole peeled tomatoes

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 4 tablespoons of salted butter

  • Salt and ground pepper to taste

To make the sauce, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté the garlic in the butter for 1 minute. Add whole peeled tomatoes (including juices) and a pinch of ground pepper.

Using a spoon, break the tomatoes into smaller pieces. Stir until ingredients are well combined. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally (breaking the tomatoes into smaller pieces).

When done, season with salt and then add the cooked spaghetti. Stir until the pasta is covered with the sauce. Serve warm.

Healthy Pumpkin Fettuccine

  • 2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

  • 5 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Sauté the garlic in a skillet over medium-high heat (preferably over butter) for 1 minute. Add the whipping cream and the pumpkin puree. Simmer for 3-4 minutes and then add the cheese.
