Sausage Carbonara

My husband has gotten to spend quite a bit of time in Italy the last few years. Of course, Italy is known for their awesome pasta dishes. The sad thing is that my husband is not much of a pasta fan!
One type of pasta that he does like though is the carbonara pasta that is so popular over there.

This sausage carbonara is his take on the classic Italian carbonara, which uses eggs. Personally, I just couldn’t get over the idea of eggs in a pasta dish! Sausage, however, is another story, and after trying it, I must say that it is delicious!

Ingredients:

14 oz. Smoked Sausage (1 package) - sliced
1 small box of Pasta – angel hair
1 tomato - diced
1 onion - diced
1 Bell Pepper - diced
1 cup Butter 
½ cup heavy cream
1 ½ cup Parmesan cheese
Italian seasoning, Salt, pepper, and garlic to taste

Pre heat your wok (or deep skillet) over medium heat. While it is heating, slice the sausage and dice the tomatoes, peppers and onions. Prepare the pasta per the box instructions. Sauté the onions, peppers, tomatoes and sausage together until the onions become transluscent. Melt your butter, and add the pasta and sausage mix. Add the cream, parmesan cheese and seasonings. Mix well.

Serve and enjoy!
