"You can adjust the amount of jalapenos to control the heat in this recipe. If I am using spicy Italian sausage, I will only use one jalapeno or I'll use a bell pepper. The creamy sauce helps curb some of the heat, but depending on the peppers, it can get spicy."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cook the pasta according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

Step 2

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced Italian sausage and cook until browned and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Remove the sausage from the skillet and set aside.

Step 3

In the same skillet, add the diced jalapeno peppers and minced garlic. Sauté for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

Step 4

Return the cooked sausage to the skillet and add the can of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic & oregano (including the juice). Stir to combine and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Step 5

Reduce the heat to low and add the softened cream cheese to the skillet. Stir until the cream cheese melts and coats the sausage mixture.

Step 6

Gradually add the chicken or vegetable broth, stirring continuously, until a creamy sauce forms. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat through.

Step 7

Add the cooked pasta to the skillet and toss to coat the pasta evenly with the creamy sauce.

Step 8

Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and chopped basil or parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 9

Remove from heat and let the flavors meld for a few minutes.

Step 10

Garnished with additional Parmesan cheese and fresh herbs, if desired.
