We celebrate everyday here at our house! Life is too short to not celebrate! So why not make a weekly gourmet style dinner? We deserve it right? Let’s celebrate because life is a special occasion!
Morgan and I headed out to Walmart for some fun one on one time and to pick up the ingredients for our special dish. You can view our trip by clicking over to the shopping story I posted on Google+. The first sight that greeted us as we walked through the door was a Christmas Tree! Eeek! Already? I still need to get the Halloween Candy! Then Thanksgiving and my birthday! (November 28th, if you were wondering…I love Amazon Gift Cards!)
For this recipe I am using a Sausage from Hillshire Farm Gourmet Creations! It has Bacon in it! Who could say no to that?
- Hillshire Farm Gourmet Creations Beef & Bacon Sausage
- Bunch of Green Onions
- Small Onion
- Clove of Garlic
- Olive Oil
- Sea Salt
- Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Put a pot of water on to boil for cooking the Linguine! While you wait prepare all ingredients as instructed below.
Slice the green onions, the small onion and chop the garlic. Set aside.
Slice the sausage into bite size pieces. See those white chunks and the creaminess on the edges? That is Monterey Jack Cheese! It is all through the sausage!
Your water should be boiling by now, so go ahead and add your linguine. I add a splash of olive oil to my water. Cook linguine as directed on the box.
Prepare a skillet by heating up 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the sliced sausage to the hot oil and lightly brown. Once it begins to brown add 1/4 to 1/3 cup olive oil and the remaining ingredients.
Simmer until the onions have softened. This allows the flavors to infuse in the olive oil! You can add a bit of italian seasoning if you like at this point…I did! I also add sea salt at this point.
Mmmmm…..now stir this mixture into your cooked linguine and mix well, being sure that the oil coats the pasta evenly.
Serve topped with shredded Parmesan cheese and garlic bread.
