Fettuccine with Creamy Tomato Italian Sausage Sauce

Posted by on

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 shallots, chopped
  • 2 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1/2 pound spicy or hot Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 14.5-ounce cans diced tomatoes in juice
  • 1 Tbsp dried sage
  • 3/4 pound fettuccine
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Method

1 Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic and sauté until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add sausages and sauté until no longer pink, breaking up the sausages a bit, about 5 minutes. Add cream; simmer 5 minutes. Add tomatoes with juices. Add sage. Simmer until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.

2 Meanwhile, cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite. Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid.

3 Return pasta to same pot; add sauce. Toss over medium heat until sauce coats pasta, adding reserved cooking liquid by 1/4 cupfuls if mixture is dry. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to bowl; sprinkle with cheese and serve.
