Before we get into why this smoked sausage alfredo recipe with Hillshire Farm® Smoked Sausage is so out of this world, let’s just be sure we’re on the same page. If you thought Alfredo was named for a certain famous actor and his onscreen traitor sibling, well, that would be cool, but no. Alfredo is actually a type of Italian pasta sauce that gets its name from a late-19th-century Roman chef. The rich and creamy gravy is traditionally made with emulsified Parmesan cheese and butter. The sauce — along with the fettucini noodles it’s traditionally served with — likely jumped the pond from Italy to America when magazines and travel books began writing about the dish and the famous chef who invented it…

Alfredo sauce may sound complicated, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Our recipe, which calls for using a package of fully cooked, Hillshire Farm® Smoked Sausage, takes just 15 minutes, from countertop to table.

Something people seem to enjoy a lot about our recipe is that it’s a Cajun and Italian fusion. The Italian flavors derive from the Alfredo, naturally. But by combining it with Cajun seasonings and Hillshire Farm® smoked sausage, made with choice cuts of beef, turkey, and pork, it’s a whole new kind of rich and deeply smoky-flavored meal the entire family will love.

    Very good! 2 stars on the reheat though - more grease than sauce, but still edible.

    This is excellent. I have made this many many times! My family is not super tomato fans so I substitute green peas and add green onion if I have it. Has become family staple.

    It turned out amazing! The cherry tomatoes definitely add a slight crunch. Also, helps tune down the saltiness of the dish. I added chopped portobello mushrooms with the sausage and that tasted great! I probably would’ve added a little less Parmesan cheese personally but overall great!

    Really tasty! Seems like it could use one more component, maybe mushrooms or something with a tiny bit of crunch but all in all this is a very good dish.

    I made this for my family for dinner tonight and everyone LOVED it! I followed the recipe but added more tomatoes and cooked them with the sausage.
