I normally shy away from recipes that call for canned soup or bottled sauces as an ingredient, but I was intrigued by all the good reviews this recipe got. I should have followed my instincts. Maybe it was the brand of alfredo sauce I purchased, but it was a well-known, high-end brand. I should have tasted it before I dumped it into the pan. It had no flavor that came close to alfredo sauce, and the texture was gluey, almost gelatinous. I tried to fix it by adding some milk and some sauted onions and garlic, but it was no use. My husband ate his, but then he'll eat anything. I definitely will not make it again.-27 Jul 2007

This recipe was too perfect tonight! I was standing in the kitchen with a jar of alfredo in my hand wondering what to do with it. I checked here and this was #2- and I just bought some smoked sausage yesterday! I had the Roasted Garlic Alfredo by Classico which gave it an interesting flavor. I'll definitely be making this again and I plan on trying it with different types of alfredo. I omitted any additional salt since alfredo & kielbasa can be salty all on their own. Try it with fresh grated parmesan cheese on top- yum! I thought about adding peas but opted to stick to the original recipe- I can't imagine it would taste anything less than delish!-23 Apr 2007

This recipe was good. I tweeked it just a little. After I browned the sausage I took it out of the pan and then drained the fat and added 1tbsp of butter and a minced clove of garlic. I sauted it for less than a minute. Then I added the sausage back in, then the alfredo sauce and I used No-Yolk Kluski noodles. It was very good. My two year old son loved it!-19 Feb 2007

What kind of sausage to use?

I used a fully cooked Ukrainian sausage. Smoked sausages definitely vary, but whatever you can find/your favorite variety will be fine. Do use your best judgement when it comes to draining the fat, though. The kind I bought for this recipe wasn't too fatty at all, but some will release a lot of fat, so it's a good idea to spoon it out of the pan. You can use an uncooked sausage (e.g. Italian sausage) and cook it for this recipe (take it out of the casings and crumble it), but cooking time may be a bit longer.

Feel free to use a bit less than the 1 pound of sausage that's suggested. I just used the whole coil that I bought.

How to Make Cheesy Sausage Pasta

  • Everything cooks in one pan, so you don’t need to worry about boiling the noodles ahead of time
  • Use the oil get a golden brown color on the sausage and soften the onions
  • Dump everything into the pan and stir it together
  • You will put the lid on so that it all cooks faster and all of your liquid doesn’t evaporate. But you will want to take the lid off to stir a couple of times.
  • Do not let the pot boil over, this can cause your milk to curdle.
