Honey Sausage Fettucini

January 03, 2007|by TARA REILLY

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
12-ounce package turkey sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 pound fresh fettuccini pasta
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat combine the oil and rosemary. When the oil is hot, add the sausage and saut until lightly browned, about 4 to 5 minutes.

Once the water has boiled, add the pasta and cook according to package directions.

While the pasta cooks, add the honey to the sausage and cook, stirring constantly, until it bubbles and thickens.

Once the pasta has cooked, reserve about 1/4 cup cooking water, then drain the fettuccini. Add the pasta and the reserved cooking water to the skillet and toss to coat. Add the cheese and toss again. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Serves 4.
