How do you make homemade Alfredo sauce?

Ohhh I just can’t get enough of this creamy homemade Alfredo sauce! It’s easy to make and so delicious. Alfredo sauce is essentially just heavy cream mixed with butter and some garlic or other seasonings.

For this Sausage Alfredo recipe, we’re going to make the sauce in the same pan that we used to cook the sausage. Not need to create more dirty dishes than necessary!

  1. After removing the sausages, drain the fat from the skillet
  2. Keep as much garlic in the pan as you can while draining
  3. Pour the cream into the skillet and bring it to a low boil
  4. Continuously stir & scrape the bottom of the pan to keep the cream liquidy as it melts

Once the Alfredo sauce is done cooking, you can add the sausage back in to mix it all together.

How do you make Fettuccine Alfredo with sausage?

  1. The first step in this Italian Sausage Pasta recipe is to cook the fettuccine. You want the pasta al dente, so cook it in a large pot of boiling water for about 8-10 minutes.
  2. While the fettuccine is boiling, go ahead and cook the sage in oil, then move straight on to the Italian Sausage.
  3. Create bite-sized pieces of sausage, let them cook through, add in the garlic, and then remove them from the skillet and set them aside.
  4. Next you’ll cook the homemade Alfredo sauce as outlined above.
  5. Once the fettuccine is cooked, drain the pasta, and add in the Alfredo and sausage. All done! You’ve got a tasty Sausage Alfredo ready for dinner.

Ingredients
  • 1 pound dried fettuccine
  • ½ pound hot Italian sausage
  • 20-24 fresh sage leaves
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Freshly grated black pepper
  • Freshly grated Parmigiana Reggiano
Instructions
  1. Cook fettuccine per package directions al dente.
  2. While the fettuccine cooks, heat a large skillet and add the oil. Heat the oil until it shimmers and fry the bay leaves (it only takes a few seconds), in batches, until all are fried. Leave the oil in the skillet and transfer the bay leaves to paper towels to dry.
  3. Separate the sausage into bite-size chunks and sauté them in the oil just until cooked through (don’t overcook or sear). Add the minced garlic and cook 15-30 seconds or until the garlic softens and blooms. Transfer the sausage to a plate and set aside.
  4. Pour off the fat from the skillet while trying to preserve as much garlic as possible. Add the cream and bring it to a low boil while scraping the bottom of the pan. Reduce the heat and return the sausage to the skillet, and season with salt & pepper, to taste. Remove from the heat.
  5. Drain the pasta and place it on a large serving platter or bowl. Pour the sauce over the pasta, toss gently and sprinkle on the fried sage leaves.
  6. Garnish with grated Parmigiana.
  7. Enjoy!
