Sausage and Garlic Alfredo Primavera

Submitted by: IVORY1825

Introduction

This is an on-the-fly pasta dish that I made one night. It turned out fabulous, especially if you like garlic! This is an on-the-fly pasta dish that I made one night. It turned out fabulous, especially if you like garlic!
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 tbsp flour (mine's gluten-free)
    3/4 cup almond milk, unsweetened
    2 oz Italian shredded cheese (mine contained mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, and romano)

    2 oz pasta, mine's rice pasta

    2 sausage links, hot or mild
    2 cups chopped broccoli and cauliflower
    1/2 red pepper chopped
    6-10 cloves of garlic (depending on how much you like garlic) chopped into quarters (so they are large chunks)
    1 diced tomato

Directions

Most of the following steps are happening at about the same time.

Cook pasta al dente

Heat oven to 450 and put in garlic and red peppers to roast

Cook broccoli, cauliflower, and sausage and cut into small pieces

Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the flour to make a slurry
Add the almond milk and stir constantly until thickened
Turn down the hear and add most of the cheese (can reserve some to sprinkle on top) and mix until the cheese is melted
Add onion powder, salt, and pepper to taste

Mix everything into the sauce and allow flavors to mingle for a couple of minutes over low heat while stirring

You can easily cut back some calories with lower fat meat/meat substitute and cheese but I can't guarantee the flavor, however the garlic adds a lot and the contribution of the sausage seemed minimal. I would make sure you have a blend of cheeses, I think that was an important part of the flavor.
