Italian Sausage Roll

1 lb. Italian sausage
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tube crescent rolls
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1 cup Alfredo sauce with mushrooms
cheese for topping (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Crumble and brown Italian sausage. Drain well and cool completely. After cooling mix in cream cheese. Cover a cookie dish with foil sprayed with non-stick spray. Unroll crescent rolls and seal seams by pressing together. Form sausage mix into a roll placing it long-way down the center of dough. Top with shredded cheese. Bring sides up and over sausage roll. Bake 20-25 minutes or until slightly browned. Top with optional cheese and heat until melted. Heat Alfredo sauce in a saucepan. Cut Roll into slices topping with hot Alfredo. Serves 6-8

Changes - This one is fun to play with. Add very well squeezed spinach to meat mixture. Use different flavors of cheese such as sharpe or blended cheeses. Use Pizza or Spaghetti sauce in place of the Alfredo. You can also use a tube of thin crust pizza dough in place of the crescents.
