Ingredients

  • 14 Ounces Andouille Sausage sliced into medallions
  • ½ Onion thinly sliced
  • ½ Red Bell Pepper seeds removed and thinly sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Cajun Spice
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 14oz Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 ½ cups Chicken Broth
  • 8 ounce Pasta
  • ½ cup Parmesan Cheese freshly grated
  • 4 ounces Heavy Whipping Cream

Instructions

  • In a large skillet saute the andouille sausage over medium-high heat and sear on both sides. Removed and set a side.
  • To the same pan add the onions, peppers, Cajun spice and garlic. Cook for 3 - 5 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften.
  • Next, add the petite tomatoes and simmer for 3 - 5 minutes.
  • Now add chicken broth and pasta to the pan.
  • Cover and bring to a boil.
  • Turn the heat down and let the pasta simmer for 12 - 15 minutes. Stir the pasta every 2 - 3 minutes to keep it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the heavy whipping cream and Parmesan cheese. Simmer over low-heat until the sauce begins to thicken and all the ingredients are incorporated.
  • Options: Top with fresh parsley and red pepper flakes.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

TIPS
  1. Store any leftover pasta in an airtight container for up to three days in the refrigerator.
  2. The length of time the pasta takes to cook depends on the type of pasta.
  3. Andouille sausage is cooked.  If you use a sausage that is not pre-cooked, be sure to alter the cooking instructions to be sure that it is fully cooked.
