Re: what to do with heavy cream?

Best. Recipe. Ever.

Bowties with Sausage Cream Sauce

1 pkg bowtie pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 lb sweet or hot (your choice) Italian sausage, casings removed and crumbled
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup diced onion
1 (28 oz) can Italian-style plum tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups heavy cream (I've also used half & half)
1/2 tsp salt
3 tablespoons minced fresh basil

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to10 minutes, or until al dente; drain and set aside. Heat oil in a large, skillet over medium heat. Cook sausage and pepper flakes until sausage is evenly brown. Stir in onion and garlic, cook until onion is tender. Add tomatoes, half & half, and salt. Simmer until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Stir cooked pasta into sauce, and heat through. Sprinkle with basil and serve.

go to foodnetwork.com and search for pecan praline morsels. Made by Paula Deen. They are super easy and really really really tasty!

Re: what to do with heavy cream?

Oooo . . . this thread is making me hungry! We use cream in pureed veg soup (butternut squash is a favorite but potato is really good too ). Making a great big pot of soup means you've got enough for a large gathering or leftovers for several days, and you can use quite a bit of cream this way. It's also great to whip it up and top a dessert with it--just takes a few minutes but turns something ordinary into something really special.
