I fixed this recipe using thin boneless pork chops instead of the sausage and it was great!!!! I am going to try using boneless, skinless chicken breasts next. I'm sure it will be just as good.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown sausage in a pre-heated pan. Drain fat and set sausage aside.
  2. Add cream to the hot pan and continue to cook over low heat for 4 minutes. Add saffron and reduce sauce to the desired consistency.
  3. Chop sausage and add it to sauce.
  4. Remove cooked pasta from pot, retaining a portion of the water. Immediately add pasta to sauce and season with Parmesan cheese, salt and freshly crushed black pepper. (Thin sauce with pasta water if needed.).
  5. Transfer to large serving platter, garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
