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.

    My whole family really enjoyed this recipe, including my 2 and 5 year olds. I did have to add extra milk to the recipe as it actually got dry towards the end. Super flavorful and was not too difficult at all, total of maybe 30-40 min. Served with a salad.
    way to greasy. no modifications. no i will not be making this again.
    at first i thought it was alittle salty but after adding the noodles it mellowed out and had very good flavors. I did add some red pepper flakes 1/2 of a tsp and a tsp of cornstarch because i like spicy and thicker sauces.

    Delicious and easy, my family and I love it! (only used half the spice, b/c we're weak mouths, but no other changes)
    really good! I had to adapt a little using an almost ready sauce. Next time I'll cook the full receipt

    Husband love, love, loved. Want to try a healthier alternative than heavy cream though but every now and then...okay.

    treated great, even reheated. i skipped the cajun seasoning (delicate palates at my house 😉). i also through in some chopped broccoli because i had it. to reheat, i microwaved with a wet paper towel laying over it. so good.

    Great! I made a double recipe and would probably keep the seasoning to 3 tsp instead of 4 as it was really rich, but it was tasty!

    Delish! My fam loves spicy so I used hot Italian sausage and instead of cherry, used canned diced tomatoes. Found a Creole Cajun spice mix also. When my kids tell me to make it again - I keep the recipe 👍🏻
    it was really good, but you need to add cherry tomatoes to the list of ingredients, I seen them in the picture but not theblist and when shopping or even adding list to shopping list, the tomatoes not listed.

    This one is a good one! It's very quick to make and super tasty. Definitely on my list to make on a regular basis just cut down on the spice or it won't be edible!
