1 package Al Fresco Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage
1 1/2 cups Alfredo sauce
3/4 cup sweet bell pepper strips, mixed colors

After the two are well incorporated, add grated cheese and mix in as it melts. Bring to a small rapid bowl, remove from heat and set aside.
Some Al Fresco brand sausages you can buy already cooked or uncooked.
Al Fresco is a preferred brand, as it is minimally processed and no preservatives added.
In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat. Let sausage crumble to small bits.
Add Alfredo sauce, cooked pasta and vegetables. Stir until all are mixed well together.
Plate and serve. Add some slices of an Italian Rustic Bread loaf with melted provolone cheese. A great addition to plated pasta.
