I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Smoked Sausage with Fettuccini

Simple yet satisfying

1 lb fettuccini
175 g smoked, fully cooked sausage, sliced
1 tbsp butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1 cup chicken or turkey broth
1 tsp capers with their juice
1/3 cup parmesan

Cook fettuccini as per package directions, and while it cooks heat butter in a large skillet and add sliced smokie. Stir in minced garlic, onion and peppers and cook 4-5 minutes, until lightly browned.

Pour about half the broth into the skillet to de-glaze the pan. Add the rest of the broth, pepper flakes, lemon pepper and capers and cook on medium heat 8-10 minutes.

Before draining the fettuccini reserve about 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Set aside and drain the pasta.

Mix the sausage mixture with the fettuccini, adding a small amount of pasta water to make it saucy. Stir in the parmesan cheese.
