penne and italian sausage with cream sauce

I am in love with this dish so I wanted to share with you all!

1 batch of cooked penne pasta
1 pkg sweet italian sausage (turkey)
1 pint heavy whipping cream
dash of garlic powder
dash of black pepper

Cook pasta and drain. Squeeze sausage from casings. Cook sausage in hot pan until browned. Drain all grease from pan and dab meat with papertowels to get any extra off. Return to pan and pour in heavy cream. Sprinkle with seasonings. Bring to boil while stirring and continue cooking for 5 to 10 minutes over a medium heat until sauce thickens some. It will still be pretty runny but will thicken more as it cools. Add pasta and toss. Serve with toast to soak up all the delicious sauce.

You can top this with parmesan cheese if you like. You could also add chopped scallions and mushrooms while cooking if you like them.
