Creamy Smoked Sausage Pasta!!

You are going to LOVE this recipe! It is soooo creamy and uses Turkey Sausage! I have an addiction to Smoked Sausage. It’s just so versatile and the turkey sausage is 1/2 the fat. I also eat these as a guilt free hot dog when I’m having a craving! Who doesn’t love hot dogs? Anyways enough blabbing on to the recipe!!!

My favorite brand of the turkey smoke sausage is Butterball:

or if that isn’t on sale I go with Eckrich…

This one is ALWAYS 2 for $5 at Kroger and the Butterball is on occasion. I do not prefer the Kroger brand of these sausages. They just don’t taste as good!!!This type of meal is my favorite. I love being able to only dirty up one or two pans and not having to cook any sides! Below is all of the ingredients you will need:

643C7060-1E0C-4C8C-9BF6-015212F060AE

1 pkg. of smoked turkey sausage

8 oz. pasta (whichever kind you like)

2 cups of heavy whipping cream

1/2 grated Parmesan cheese

1 tbsp Creole seasoning

  1. Put pasta and water in a pot and boil until soft. Should take about 10-15 mins.
  2. While pasta is boiling cut up your sausage and saute in a pan for about 5 mins. I usually cut my sausage in half, then each half long ways, then slice them up into small pieces. I like to have a piece of sausage in every bite so I cut it into smaller pieces. You can do whatever tickles your pickle!
  3. Add cream and seasoning to the skillet and bring to a boil. I usually let it boil for about 5 minutes stirring constantly so it doesn’t stick. Then turn the heat down to medium and the sauce should thicken after about 10 mins. Continue to stir. 1
  4. Once the sauce has thickened, stir in your drained pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese!!!

**if your sauce doesn’t thicken after 5 mins on medium, bring back to a boil until it starts to thicken. You can even continue to heat it after the pasta has been added if you want it thicker!

YUMMY!! I love this recipe. It satisfies my carb craving but is still high in protein! I like to add a little extra Creole on my own plate. I could literally put creole on everything. I hope everyone enjoys this recipe. It’s sure to be a big hit! This serves about 7 people and is VERY filling! Below is the nutritional information. Its less than 500 calories a serving! I love when I can make whole meals for under 500 calories! Yummy yum yum yummmm! Enjoy!

Hi ya’ll!!

Hello everyone! Welcome to my new blog. I am so excited!! I am not new to the blogging world but I am new to WordPress. So any tips or suggestions are GREATLY appreciated!

I am going to dedicate this post to telling you a little about myself! My name is Keiliah (pronounced Kee-luh) I know, complicated. We will save the origin of my name for another post! I am 25 years old and I live in Bowling Green, Ky. I live with my long time boyfriend (6 years) Matthew in a little 800 square foot house. We are hoping to buy soon! I need more room for DIY! And an excuse to buy more furniture to redo. Literally we have no more room for furniture and currently have a baby changing table in our living room that I plan on making into a bar cart. But there is currently no where to put the bar cart haha! More ROOM PLEASE!!! Matthew is my rock and keeps me grounded. I honestly think he is the only person in this world who can put up with my crap. We both equally drive each other crazy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

I have the best family a girl could ask for. My parents and grandparents live a short 20 min drive from me and my sister is here in Bowling Green with me!! She is my best friend. I tell her way too many personal things and she tries not to judge me and give me the best advice. Sometimes my life is such a hot mess there is no response for it. She has a 20 month old daughter (Aimsley) who is my life! I am obsessed with her. Every Thursday since she was born we have Aimsley and Aunt Kei Kei Thursday and just hang out all night! Its my favorite day of the week. AND baby #2 is on the way!!! AHHHH we find out in 1 week what this one will be!!! 

I am currently an office manager for a large Construction management company. I don’t do anything exciting, but I get paid pretty good for the amount of work I do so I can’t complain! In the afternoons I like to COOK. I pretty much cook every night! Matthew eats enough for 3 people so I try to keep a pretty good variety! I will be sharing most of my recipes on here! I also cook on a budget and try to keep it healthy! I will share my tips soon! On the weekends if we aren’t at the lake, or attending a wedding (their EVERYWHERE) then I spend my weekends out with my girls (they’re the best) or DIYing! I am always bargain shopping and searching craigslist for something I can make new again. There is nothing like a good ole bargain!!! I like to think I can see the potential in things. I also use this approach when it comes to shopping for clothes. Before I buy a new outfit at the mall I will go to the local boutiques first! If I don’t find something there then I will hit up the clearance racks first! There is nothing more satisfying than getting a dress for 5 bucks that just needed a little love! Whether it be lengthening or a missing button I will take that price for 20 mins of sewing!

Well that’s pretty much the gist of my life! I look forward to sharing my recipes and craft ideas!! Check back daily for more!!! Thanks Ya’ll!!!
