Honestly, I think my family could eat this dish every week. My husband loves it and I love making it because…. it’s so simple to prepare.  Cajun baked spaghetti makes the perfect weeknight dinner. It takes no time to put together and it’s full of flavor. So when you don’t have a ton of time to spend in the kitchen, this is the recipe to make. I’ve also taken this dish to several potlucks and always come home with an empty bowl. Add our savory cheese muffins and you have a wonderful meal.

Ingredients Needed for Cajun Baked Spaghetti:

Andouille sausage (I have also used smoked sausage and smoked turkey sausage)

Spaghetti noodles

Diced onion

Sweet peppers or green pepper

Cajun seasoning

Smoked paprika

Cream cheese

Diced tomatoes, drained

Shredded cheddar cheese

Recipe Notes: If you don’t like Andouille sausage, you can always use smoked sausage or smoked turkey sausage. My family loves cheddar cheese but you could easily use mozzarella or parmesan in this recipe.  Cajun seasoning can be found in almost every grocery store. If you can’t find it, you can always make your own with our recipe.

If you liked easy-baked pasta dishes, then you might want to try our French Onion beef bake. It’s so good!
