What’s Cooking With Trice!!! (Creamy Pasta w/ Turkey Sausage)

Hi Dolls,

I hope everyone’s 2012 has gotten off to a great start!  After the whirlwind of a holiday I had, it was challenging getting back to the swing of things in the “real world”. 

Now that things are back to normal and I want to share my first cooked dish of the year.  I got this quick, easy, and yummy recipe from my girl Monique over at Divas Can Cook!  She has awesome recipes that are delicious and easy to follow! It is a Creamy Pasta with Sausage!  This dish is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. 

Here’s what you need:


  • 2.5 cups of bowtie pasta

  • olive oil

  • 8 oz smoked turkey sausage (diced)

  • 1/2 cup onions (diced)

  • 1 clove of garlic (minced)

  • dash of red pepper flakes

  • 1.5 diced tomatoes

  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream

  • 2/3 cup of Italian Cheese Blend

  • 1 TBS Parsley Flakes

  • Seasoning of Choice

DIRECTIONS for this quick and easy meal!!!!!

1.) Boil pasta until al dente (Approximately 7 minutes)
and set aside.


2.) Brown your diced turkey sausage.


3.) Add garlic and diced onion to sausage. 


4.) Add a dash of red pepper flakes. (I always use red pepper flakes from the leftover little pizza packets) Photobucket

It’s smelling pretty good at this point!!!

5.) Add your cup of heavy whipping cream. Photobucket

6.) Once the cream thickens, add tomatoes and pasta. Photobucket

7.) Add a little seasoning of choice. Photobucket
8.) Add your cheese


9.) Garnish with the parsley flakes and…….


 I had a bottle of sparkling cider in the fridge that I thought would go  well with this dish.

  It did and VOILA!!!! The dish turned out perfectly!!!


  This year I want to do more cooking so hopefully this is a start to something great! I LOVE cooking and this will be added to my book of recipe keepers! Please try this, it only took about 15-20 minutes tops! Perfect during the work week. Talk to you later dolls!

    Oh boy, my mouth was watering as you cooked the pasta…then I saw the cider….now you're speakin' my lingo! 🙂 Yummmyyy!! I wish I cared about cooking enough to learn to do it. I seriously have never had a desire to really try it out. I mean, I can make a few meals, but do I like cooking? No. My mom always tried to teach me, telling me I 'needed' to learn, but all I wanted to do was play outside. My little sister's man eats way better than mine because of it. hahahaha Oh well, my hubby still loves me, and he's definitely better in the kitchen than I am. Opening a bottle of wine though? Oh, you can bet I have that covered. :DHave a great day, my fellow San Antonian! ♥
