Evaporated fat-free milk and smoked turkey sausage are the calorie-busting secrets in this rich and creamy pasta favorite.
Updated Jul 14, 2014

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 1 cup evaporated fat-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon Creole or Cajun seasoning
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) roasted red bell peppers, drained
  • 1/2 pound fully cooked smoked turkey sausage, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)

Steps

  • 1
    Cook and drain fettuccine as directed on package.
  • 2
    While fettuccine is cooking, place milk, Creole seasoning and bell peppers in blender or food processor. Cover and blend on high speed until smooth.
  • 3
    Pour pepper mixture into 12-inch skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens. Stir in sausage; heat through but do not boil.
  • 4
    Serve sausage mixture over fettuccine. Sprinkle with onions.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You'll find smoked turkey sausage in links or rings near kielbasa and other smoked sausage.
  • tip 2
    “Snip” green onions with a scissors directly over the cooked fettuccine. You won’t dirty an extra knife or cutting board!
