Sausage & Potato Pasta

My brother C.J. lived in Italy for 2 years and came home with some great recipes. I couldn't find my original instructions (which were vague), so after a brief conversation with my sister this is what I came up with. So there are some variations to how C.J. would make it. I added some onion. This is a very filling meal!
Sausage & Potato Pasta
1 lbs ground pork sausage
2-3 russet potatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 tsp rosemary
1 lbs favorite pasta
olive oil
2 c cream
1/4 of an onion, diced
In a large frying pan combine the sausage and the onion and cook till meat is browned and cooked through. Remove the onion and sausage mixture to a bowl and set aside. Add the potatoes to the pan and cook them in the sausage grease. If needed add some olive oil. Sprinkle the potatoes with rosemary, and season with salt and pepper. Cook the potatoes till they are tender to a fork. Add the meat and onions to the potatoes in the pan, and add the cream. Stir till well combined. Let simmer (while pasta is cooking) stirring occasionally. Check your seasonings you may want to add more rosemary and salt and pepper.
Cook your pasta and serve with the sauce.
