    1 tablespoon butter
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 medium onion, thinly sliced
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed

Add cream and simmer until sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Stir in 4 tablespoons parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite.
    Drain pasta; transfer to large bowl. Bring sauce to simmer. Pour sauce over pasta. Add 1/2 cup cheese and toss to coat. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and 2 tablespoons parsley.
