Cajun Pasta Sauage Shrimp

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces uncooked pasta (I used fettuccine)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb Andouille Sausage
  • 1 pound large shrimp (For this I used frozen deveined. If using fresh clean and devein)
  • 1 bell peppers, thinly sliced (I used a red bell pepper)
  • 1 small onion, peeled and diced

Creamy Cajun Alfredo Sauce Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 15 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning, homemade or store-bought (divided using a pinch to season the shrimp)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cook the fettuccine according to the package instructions, and keep warm.
  2. Cut the sausage into 1/4" -1/2" chunk size slightly diagonal. Season shrimp with salt and pepper and a pinch of Cajun seasoning.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil, add onion and bell pepper. When the onion is almost translucent, about 3 minutes then add garlic. Remove and set aside.
  4. Add sausage to brown and set aside. Pour out any excess grease leaving about 1 tablespoon, add the shrimp and cook until pink, curled and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side, then transfer to a plate.
  5. Add chicken broth, stirring and scraping up any brown bits from bottom of pan. Add crushed tomatoes, sugar, remaining Cajun seasoning, thyme and heavy cream then turn down to a simmer.
  6. Once simmering, add Parmesan and stir into sauce, simmer a few more minutes and taste if sauce needs any extra salt or pepper.
  7. If serving directly from the skillet, mix in pasta and top with shrimp, sausage and the parsley. Depending on the size of your skillet I poured the pasta into a serving dish, and topped with the sauce, shrimp, sausage and sprinkled the chopped parsley
