112 ounce package chicken apple sausage, cut on the diagonal  ( I used Sam’s Choice from Wal Mart )

1 large onion, sliced

2 tablespoons butter 

1 large granny mint apple, sliced

1/2 cup chicken stock

3 tablespoons brown sugar

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon grainy mustard

1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped

1 teaspoon fresh sage chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

Salt and pepper to taste

19 ounce package fresh black pepper fettuccine ( Aldi brand in the cooler section) but any fresh or dry pasta will work

Chopped parsley, toasted walnuts, and pepitas for garnish.


Set your Instant Pot to sear.

Melt butter and add onion and sausage. Cook stirring frequently until sausage begins to brown.

Add sliced apple, and the next 8 ingredients, plus salt and pepper to taste.

On high pressure (set according to your machine) cook 4 minutes. Allow pressure to natural release 10 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure.

Cook pasta according to package directions.

To serve place cooked past in a bowl and top with sausage apple mixture. Garnish with parsley, walnuts, and pepitas. 


This can easily be done in a skillet, you will need to adjust cooking time to get the apples to create a sauce.
