This was one of the best things we ate last week.  It reminded me a lot of jambalaya (that’s why I called it Creamy Jambalaya Pasta).  I’ve never had a pasta with smoked sausage in it and it turns out that I love it!  This dish had the perfect amount of spice in it – not too hot, but it definately had a little kick to it from the cajun seasoning. 

The sauce for this pasta is so decadent.  How could it not be with white wine and cream?  The sauce has an  amazing flavor that comes from reduicing it not once, but twice.  Don’t worry, this is still a quick weeknight meal.  It took less than 30 minutes to throw together.  I can’t wait to try different meats with the sauce.  I think this sauce would go well with chicken or shimp too.  I will be making this again very soon!

  6. That sounds and looks good. I've been on kitchen strike the past few days. Told hubby he had to eat up leftovers or cook his own.

    Mainly, I'm tired of something over rice…. I luv pasta and we have smoked sausage. Will have to give this a try.

  7. Since I'm a bigger fan of pasta than rice, this is right in my wheel house and it looks great. Like you said, some shrimp tossed in with the sausage would have kicked it up a notch or two. I'll have to give it a try.
