Creamy Penne with Sausage



I saw this recipe on That Skinny Chick can Bake awhile ago.  I was immediately sold!  I had tomatoes and rosemary in my garden, and this was the perfect thing to use them in.  Well, I couldn't wait for my tomatoes - they just aren't turning red!  So I used canned tomatoes, and it awesome! As I told you the other day, I am cleaning my kitchen.  That doesn't just include getting rid of magazines and glasses that that were my parents, and haven't been used in 10 years.  That means my freezer and pantry as well.  So I had tomatoes that had been in the pantry forever, I have box upon box of pasta, and I had heavy cream from making this ice cream, that needed to get used.  So I was set! 

I wanted to lighten the recipe up just a tad - so I used turkey sausage, and cut back on the cream and cheese.  If you can't find Italian Turkey Sausage you can use just plain turkey sausage and add Italian seasoning while cooking.  I was out of onion, so I didn't use that part.  I will leave it in the recipe though, because normally I would have put it in!

My 6 year old absolutely LOVED this!  He was skeptical at first, took his first bite....immediately I heard "mmmm"!  I just started laughing, and he didn't get it.  He had no idea he vocally told me he liked it.  He told me he wanted me to dare him to eat leftovers the next day (he hates leftovers), but this he ate.  So thanks Liz for a great recipe!

Looks so tempting Erin, I can imagine the fragrant from the rosemary but you know what - it so difficult to grow rosemary at Malaysia.

I tried a couple of times but seems just don't want to grow.

I almost always use turkey sausage in place of regular sausage when I make pasta dishes like this. It still has lots of flavor and it makes my family and me feel a lot less guilty! This dish really captures so many of my favorite flavors with pasta. PS My dad's tomatoes are FINALLY starting to turn red, but it took all summer!

I love pasta dishes like this! My garden is pathetic this year. I have 1 tomato so far and I had to throw it out. Boo :( Cute story about your little one! I am always amazed when my kiddo's want the left-overs for lunch. They don't have a choice at dinner and they don't seem to mind them at dinner but they have a choice at lunch and it's never left-overs that they choose!

I think this should be a crucial repertoire of a 21st century Amazing mom-cook like you! I certainly make lots of this over the years. Hard to fault, easy to 'yum'!

I remember this recipe from Lizzy's. I usually don't bake so I don't have heavy whipping cream at home, but when I do, I really need some recipes to use up the rest. 1/2 cup of cream sounds like a perfect amount to finish it up. I have to cook this soon! Lizzy must be so happy you cook this! :-)
