Recipe: Weeknight Sausage Alfredo

I’m all for a quick and easy meal. And it gets bonus points if only a few ingredients are needed. That’s why I love this Weeknight Sausage Alfredo.

It only takes a handful of ingredients (I have them all with me local family dollar), is super affordable, ready in less than 30 minutes and only messes up a few dishes. You guys will love this not only because it’s easy and quick but also because it’s packed with great flavor.

It’s the perfect weeknight meal but tastes like it’s for a special occasion. You could totally impress your sweetheart with this dish. You all enjoy.

Serve up to four people any night of the week. (Stacey Little / Southern Bite)
