This is REALLY good you guys!

I’m talking a five star dinner at our house. To be honest, not a lot of meals get the full 5 star rating here. It has to pass several points…….

How easy is it to prepare?  Is it full of flavor? Did everyone eat it?  and if they did how much did they like it? First lets talk about time and flavor.  You can’t really beat a delicious meal that you can have on the table in 15 minutes. Butterball Everyday Smoked Turkey Dinner Sausage make this really easy.  You simply blend the hardwood-smoked flavored sausage with a robust flavored Alfredo sauce, spinach, sun dried tomatoes and cheese in a skillet while the pasta cooks.  That’s it.

Did everyone eat it?  To my surprise…..yes!!

My husband doesn’t usually care for pasta with white sauce, but he was intrigued by the flavors and being a Turketarian, he was especially excited about the Smoked Turkey Sausage.  And guess what?!……….he had THREE SERVINGS!!  That’s unheard of you guys!  He really loved it, as did the rest of us.

This is one dish that will definitely stay in our dinner menu rotation.  The crushed red pepper gives it just a little zing, not too much kick, but fell free to use a little less if you’re worried about it being to spicy.
