Looking For A Sauce Recipe To Go With Pasta(not tomato)

Part of dinner tonight is tricolor pasta with sweet Italian sausage. I really need a light sauce to go with it,but I can't seem to think of anything

Yes this. Super super simple.

What I do....

Mince three cloves garlic and sauté in 2 tbsp of butter for just a min or two. Once they smell good, I add about 2 cups of Half & half and about 1 cup Parmesan cheese grated, turn the heat down to a simmer and whisk whisk whisk!!! It'll thicken up on its own. I then sing in my head 'just keep stirring, just keep stirring, just keep stirring stirring stirring...' don't ask. It just happens every time.

It would probably taste like an alfredo. Alfredo usually has cream in it too. But the taste wouldn't be much different without it since most of the flavor comes from the cheese.

With the sausage though it would probably be good just tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper, roasted or sauteed garlic and Italian seasonings. A little balsamic vinegar added to the mix would be good too.

I put in a search for pasta sauces excluding tomatos. This is what allrecipes came up with. I haven't tried any of them though.
