Creamy Sausage Alfredo Pasta

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz (1 pound) of your favorite pasta (such as fettuccine, penne, or spaghetti)
  • 1 pound smoked sausage (e.g., kielbasa or smoked turkey sausage), sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 jar (15 oz) Alfredo sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for serving
  • Fresh parsley or basil leaves for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Cook the Pasta:
    • Follow the package instructions to cook the pasta until it’s al dente. Usually, this takes about 8-10 minutes. Drain the pasta and set it aside.
  2. Prepare the Sausage:
    • While the pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Add the sliced sausage to the skillet and cook until it’s lightly browned and heated through, which should take about 5-7 minutes. You can use a little cooking spray or oil if necessary, but the sausage may release some oil as it cooks.
  3. Combine Pasta, Sausage, and Alfredo Sauce:
    • Once the sausage is cooked, reduce the heat to low.
    • Add the cooked pasta to the skillet with the sausage.
    • Pour the entire jar of Alfredo sauce over the pasta and sausage.
  4. Season and Heat:
    • Sprinkle the black pepper and onion powder over the mixture.
    • Gently stir everything together to ensure the pasta, sausage, and Alfredo sauce are evenly combined.
    • Continue cooking on low heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is heated through. This should only take a few minutes.
  5. Serve:
    • Once everything is warmed through, transfer the creamy sausage Alfredo pasta to serving plates.
    • Optionally, sprinkle each serving with grated Parmesan cheese for extra flavor.
    • Garnish with fresh parsley or basil leaves if you have them on hand for a touch of color and freshness.

Creamy Sausage Alfredo Pasta is not considered low-carb. This dish typically contains pasta, which is a significant source of carbohydrates. Additionally, the Alfredo sauce often includes ingredients like heavy cream and cheese, which also contribute to the carb content.

If you’re looking for a low-carb alternative, you can consider using low-carb pasta substitutes such as zucchini noodles (zoodles), spaghetti squash, or shirataki noodles. These options have fewer carbohydrates than traditional wheat pasta. You can also make a creamy Alfredo sauce using ingredients like heavy cream, butter, and Parmesan cheese, which are low in carbohydrates.

By making these substitutions, you can create a low-carb version of Creamy Sausage Alfredo Pasta that fits within a low-carb or keto diet.
