ITALIAN SAUSAGE & BROCCOLI FETTUCCINE ALFREDO

One of my family’s favorite meals is chicken alfredo, so we eat it often!  I wanted to change it up a bit so we wouldn’t get tired of it!  So I went for Italian Sausage, well because it taste soo GOOD!  I CHOSE broccoli, well because it is healthy and easy to make!  Once I put it all together and added the fettuccine and alfredo sauce it was a BAM, POW KABOOM kinda moment!  I love it when I take one recipe, flip it dip it and make it something new and it ends up something incredible!

    Let me say, I love this recipe. The flavors marry very well and even better the next day. I used sweet Italian sausage. I didn’t have time to make alfredo sauce so I brought a jar of bertello original alfredo sauce and doctored it up with this sites suggestion of homemade sauce. This is now a stable in my house. This meal tastes like it was made with love and my family loved it. It’s not hard to make either.Thanks Utokia ! Keep up the good work. I love this site.
