I had some of those mini smoked sausages and wanted to make something for dinner with them. I could really only find recipes for snacks and such, sooo...I got creative.
Cajun Pasta Alfredo
16 oz. rotini pasta
15 oz jar Alfredo sauce (this makes it a little dry, so if you like it saucy, use 2)
1 T. Cajun seasoning (I like Tony Chachere's) (use more if you like a lot of spice)
1 package mini smoked sausages cut into 4 pieces (or sliced and quartered regular sized)
dry bread crumbs
Heat oven to 350.
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain.
Stir in sauce, sausage, and seasoning. Mix well.
Spoon pasta into a 9 x 13" baking pan, sprinkle with bread crumbs, and bake for 15-20 minutes.
Made this again tonight (5/10) but this time I used 2 jars of sauce...we like it saucy and last time was a little dry for our tastes. Also, there was some pork and chicken Italian sausage on sale that I used instead of smoked sausage and it was AMAZING!! The chicken in it, kept the sausage from being greasy and the spice in it (it was mild, but still had TONS of flavor!) meant I only needed a little Cajun seasoning. VERY GOOD!!!
