  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Chipotle Crema

    Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions.

    In a mixing bowl, combine chipotle crema and 2 tsp. lime juice (reserve remaining for corn sauce). Set aside.

    In another mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup water and cornstarch. Set aside.

    Remove Italian sausage from casing, if necessary.

  2. 2

    Cook the Sausage

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil and Italian sausage to hot pan. Break into smaller pieces until no pink remains and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Transfer sausage to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  3. 3

    Make the Corn Sauce

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil and corn to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly browned, 2-4 minutes.

    Stir in cheese sauce, seasoning blend (to taste), and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 1-2 minutes.

    Add cornstarch mixture, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 2 tsp. remaining lime juice. Stir occasionally until thickened, 2-3 minutes.

  4. 4

    Add the Pasta and Sausage
