Fettucini Alfredo with Sausage, Peppers, Onions and Tomatoes

1/2 green pepper, chopped

1/2 onion, chopped

1 lb. smoked sausage, grilled

1/2 tomato, diced

olive oil

Alfredo Sauce:

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

1 cup heavy cream or half and half (I used a combination of these)

3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

salt and pepper to taste

12 ounces Fettucini noodles (approximately, I used a little more than half of a one pound box)

Begin boiling water in a large pot for the noodles.  When water has come to a boil, add noodles and cook according to directions on the box.

While the noodles are cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet.  Add peppers and onions and saute over medium heat until tender, but not mushy, about 5 minutes.  Add chopped tomatoes and continue cooking over low heat for 3 more minutes.

Slice grilled sausage into small chunks.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan heat butter and cream, until butter has melted.  Remove from heat, add Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.  Stir until cheese has melted.

In a large bowl combine drained noodles, vegetables and sausage.  Pour alfredo sauce on top, toss and serve.
