Spicy Sausage Flatbread with Basil Cream Sauce

Ambretta Tuscan Sweet Tomato flatbread (I decided to try this and it was great), found in the bread isle of the grocery store
Hot Italian sausage (I love this stuff!)
Goat cheese
½ red bell pepper, sliced
1 garlic, minced
1-2 fresh Basil leaves, sliced in thin ribbons

Basil Cream Sauce:
¼ cup milk
1 Tbsp powdered Alfredo sauce
2 tsp Gourmet Garden Basil Herb Blend, found in the produce section of the grocery store next to the fresh herbs (these herb blends are great to have on hand, and to easily add extra flavor to any dish)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small sauce pan over med-high heat, combine milk and Alfredo sauce; bring to a boil while whisking. Turn heat to low and whisk in basil herb blend; set aside and allow to thicken.

In a small frying pan cook a few bite sized balls of sausage; cook at least half way through since the rest will be cooked in the oven.

Place flatbread on a baking sheet. Spoon and spread basil cream sauce on flatbread. Top with chunks of goat cheese, sliced bell pepper, cooked sausage and sprinkle with garlic. Top with fresh basil.

Bake for 11-13 minutes, until bread is crispy and cheese is melted.

Serve with another type of flatbread pizza for a variety or with your favorite side salad.
