Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

This 20-minute dinner has been a lifesaver for us for over 25 years. It's a favorite of most of the men who've tried it.—Mary Jane McConahay of Indianapolis, Indiana


  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 2 medium leeks (white portion only), sliced
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream


  1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage and leeks over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and leeks are tender; drain. Add mushrooms; cook for 3-4 minutes or until tender.
  2. Stir in cream. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until heated through (do not boil).
  3. Drain fettuccine; serve with sausage mixture.
