Radiatore in a Sausage and Cream Sauce : Secret Recipe Club

radiatore in a sausage and cream sauce from Cookin' Mimi

It’s time for June’s SRC post. This month I received Spinach Tiger as my assignment . I had originally planned on making zucchini fritters until I saw the recipe for sausage and cream sauce over orecchiette. I did end up making a couple of changes to the recipe. I couldn’t find orecchiette locally so I decided to use radiatore , which I can find at Walmart, and instead of making my own sausage, because finding ground pork is hit and miss, I used already made Italian sausage.

This recipe is definitely a keeper and will be on my table for years to come.
