One-Pot Cajun Pasta
for 12 servings
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 chicken breasts, diced
8 oz andouille sausage, or smoked sausage, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ yellow onion, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
2 cups mushroom
16 oz pasta, 1 box, of your choice, we used linguine
5 cups chicken broth
½ cup heavy cream
1 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
green onion, optional, for garnish
Cajun Spice Mix
cayenne pepper, equal parts
onion powder, equal parts
paprika, equal parts
garlic powder, equal parts
salt, equal parts
pepper, equal parts
Pour olive oil into the pot.
Add diced chicken breast to the pot, cover with cajun seasoning, and stir until the chicken is evenly seasoned.
Add sliced sausage and stir. Cook the meat on medium heat for 5-10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
Once the meat is cooked, add in the garlic, onion, peppers, and mushrooms, and stir. Continue stirring for 3-5 minutes as the veggies cook down.
Add the dry pasta to the pot (if using long, thin noodles, break in half), then pour in the chicken broth. Stir until everything is well-mixed.
Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, keep covered bring the heat down to a simmer for 10 minutes (stirring every two minutes).
NOTE: If there still extra chicken broth, you can discard it, cook longer until the liquid evaporates, or add a little cornstarch to thicken the liquid.
Lastly, add heavy cream and parmesan and stir until your pasta is well blended. Stir in parmesan cheese.
Garnish with green onions, more parmesan, a sprinkle of cajun seasoning (if you want some extra spice), and salt and pepper to taste.
