There is nothing like sitting down to a home cooked meal, after a busy day spent apart from one another, to discuss your day and reconnect with your family. I specifically use the Klement’s Sausage Company Italian Sausage in this cajun alfredo recipe because they  believe in old world flavor and the tradition of passing down recipes and enjoying a meal together as a family. Klement’s Cooked and Smoked Sausage are created from old world European recipes that have been passed down for generations using only the finest ingredients and comes in a variety of flavors.

The Klement’s Sausage story began 60 years ago when three brothers- John, George and Ron Klement purchased a small sausage company in South Milwaukee. Word about the genuine, old country flavor spread quickly and before long, Klement’s was a favorite. They’ve grown a lot since that small 6-person operation, but haven’t lost sight of what made their family business a success. Hard work, dedication, and perfectly seasoned sausage.

Slice the Klement Italian Sausage into 1/4” slices before adding it to the pan.

Begin by heating the olive oil over medium heat and adding the onions and green peppers to a saute pan. Cook for about 5 minutes until they begin to soften.

Next, add the sliced Italian sausage to the pan and turn the heat up to medium-high. Continue to cook until sausages begin to brown, about 5 minutes. By now your kitchen should smell amazing! The Italian sausages combined with the peppers and onions creates a tantalizing aroma!

Next, add 2 cups of heavy cream to the pan along with the black pepper and cajun seasoning. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 3-4 minutes until the mixture begins to thicken.
