Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil

  • 1 cup of parmesan cheese 

  • ¼ cup of fresh parsley for garnish

Method

  1. Heat your olive oil over high heat in a large pot. 

  2. Add the chopped garlic, sliced sausage, and chicken into the pot. Cook until the garlic begins to brown and the chicken is no longer pink.

  3. Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning over the mixture. Stir until the sausage and chicken are coated evenly with seasoning. 

  4. Toss in the heavy cream. Bring to a boil.

  5. Add in the cooked pasta. Stir until thoroughly combined. 

  6. Finish it off with parmesan cheese and parsley. Stir until the cheese fully melts and the mixture is coated in the thickened sauce.

You can make the cajun seasoning on your own if you’d like! This way you can control the amount of spice in it. We would recommend using: 

  • 2 tsp each smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder

  • 1 tsp salt & pepper

  • 1/2 cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 tbsp garlic herb blend seasoning
