Jenni's notes for this recipe:
This is another recipe that came to be by just improvising with what I had in my fridge that needed to get used up. It turned out so good, and I will definitely be making it again!

Directions

1
In a large skillet, cook sliced sausage links over medium heat. Remove from skillet and set aside. Remove most of the grease from the skillet, leaving just what stays on its own. Add garlic and cook briefly.
2
Add butter and tomatoes. Stir while butter is melting; add salt, pepper, and italian seasoning - be generous. Whisk in heavy cream and cream cheese, using whisk to break down tomatoes somewhat. Bring sauce to a low simmer, whisking often; it will thicken slightly while it cooks.
3
~Meanwhile~ while sauce is cooking, boil your pasta.
4
When sauce has thickened slightly, remove from heat and whisk in parmesan cheese. Stir in italian sausage and pasta. Enjoy!

Hi My friend - looks like you have another winner!!! Just back from London again and cupboard is bare - looks like I know what to stock up on when I go shopping!
user Jenni K AnCsMom - Feb 11, 2012
One of my good friends was just visiting here from London and just went back home! Funny! I hope you had a great time there!
Yes, I had heavy cream that was expiring today, and tomatoes that needed to be used before going bad -- this is what resulted! Let me know if you try it!

You could probably use more cream cheese if you want to - I only had 3 oz, so that's what I used!

Always fun - not sure you remember my husband is living and working there - back again in March - but love it! Your fridge sounds like mine - and LOVE cream cheese so more is always better - how much do you think?
