  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan and romiano cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced deli jalapenos the jarred kind
  • 1 tsp cilantro paste

The Rest

  • 1 package Barilla Gluten Free Penne
  • 1 package Aidells Chicken Apple Sausage
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 3 mini sweet peppers
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sweet corn kernels
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes sliced in half
  • 2 Tbs chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbs chicken stock for deglazing the pan


  • Start a large pot of water boiling in order to cook pasta noodles, cook according to package directions.

  • Cut Aidells apple sausage into rounds, and add to pan with hot oil
  • Brown sausage
  • Slice sweet mini peppers, and add into pan, let cook 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • Meanwhile, add all the sauce ingredients into a food processor or blender, and process until smooth
  • When sausage is browned, and noodles are nearly done cooking, add chicken stock to the pan to deglaze it, meaning to get the brown bits off the pan and make a nice sauce. Add in the tomatoes and corn and cilantro to the pan with the sausage, stir well.

  • Take pan off the heat.
  • Top with creamy alfredo, add cheddar cheese and stir until cheese is melted
