Cajun Pasta Skillet simple ingredients:

Linguine Pasta

Raw Shrimp

Andouille Sausage

White Onion

Heavy Cream

Cream Cheese

Smoked Paprika

Cajun Seasoning

Garlic Seasoning

Olive Oil

I have found that some pasta dishes don’t reheat well but this one does since it is covered in a creamy sauce. This dish is wonderful to enjoy with family and friends. The combination of shrimp and sausage is so good and the extra seasonings really makes this dish. You season the shrimp and sausage separately so they have a wonderful flavor. The cream cheese and heavy cream really makes this dish great. Made this for out of town guests and they loved it!
