Smoked sausage had not been in my refrigerator for years. I am talking about the kind that you buy at the grocery in the packaged meat section. It had been the base of quick and easy meals when my sons were young  until finally my boys told me that they didn’t really like it. Apparently they only ate the sausage because I always served it with Mac and Cheese and they did not want to hurt my feelings.   My Mom used to make me eat Liver and Onions (yuck!!!)  when I was a kid even though I told her I HATED it…. and I remember that I harbored a grudge against her for a long time afterward:)  Feeling guilty, the smoked sausage quickly came off the menu.

Now that everyone is (supposed to be)  grown up, it was time to give smoked sausage another try. To my relief, this recipe was a complete hit.

Ingredients

1 (12-16 oz) package Smoked Sausage, cut into thin round slices

8 oz Bowtie pasta, cooked according to package directions

2 cups whipping cream

1 TBSP Minced garlic

1 TBSP Cajun Seasoning

3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

Directions

In a large skillet, saute the sausage slices until crispy and browned around the edges. Add the garlic just as the sausage is browning, and cook for about 1 minute.  Add the cream and cajun seasoning to the skillet with the sausage, stirring until the seasoning and cream are blended. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes, until the cream mixture starts the thicken. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the parmesan.  Add the pasta to the pan and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

This recipe was adapted from Plain Chicken. One of the changes I made was to use whipping cream instead of heavy cream. In my opinion, it makes the dish a little lighter, but does not change the flavor.  I also added minced garlic to add a little sweetness to the dish.

  1. Thank you! Adding shrimp sounds delicious:)

  2. Made this and it was delicious! I somewhat doubled the sausage and ingredients to make the sauce which turned out perfectly! Next time I’ll go a little lighter on the Cajun seasoning as it was a bit spicy for my oldest son. Not to spicy for me though. 🙂 Oh and add shrimp with the sausage. Mmmmm… family APPROVED!

  3. That sounds delicious! Sometimes I add a jar of drained roasted red peppers for variety too! Thanks for visiting!!

  4. Yummy. Hubs approved. Modified by adding sauteed onions and red peppers.

  5. Thank you! I may be biased but this is my favorite Cajun recipe…ever! You may find that you need to “step away” from the pan to stop eating:)
