This Italian sausage and potatoes are the best! I have never loved a dish like this before. I serve it all the time! The creaminess of this dish is superb! The sauce alone will satisfy you to your bones! I have listed all the steps and ingredients but feel free to give it your take. For example, if you want to make it meatier, try adding crispy bacon. The smokey taste of bacon will take this dish to the next level. You all have a blessed day. Enjoy!
