I’ve been on a spicy kick lately, so when andouille sausage went on sale at my local grocery store, I was pretty excited to cook up something new. As it so happened, fresh bruschetta was also on sale, and I knew that with those two ingredients, I was on my way to a pretty tasty dish. By throwing in a few more household staples, I had a great pasta meal in under 15 minutes from skillet to table! Break out your Mardi Gras beads, because tonight we’re making Ragin’ Cajun Pasta!
Ragin’ Cajun Pasta
4 links pre-cooked cajun style andouille sausage links (I like Aidells)
1 small tub of fresh bruschetta
1/2 cup green peppers, diced
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup grate parmesan
1 box penne or farfalle pasta
Cook pasta as directed.
While pasta is cooking, combine diced peppers, bruschetta, and chili powder in a skillet over medium heat. Stir and saute for 2-3 minutes. Cut andouille sausage into “penny” slices and add to skillet. Stir in 1/2 cup of chicken stock and simmer until pasta is cooked al-dente. Drain the pasta and toss into the sauce mixture. Top with fresh grated parmesan cheese, and enjoy!
Yep- that simple, kids!
Until next time- Happy Eating!!
