This pasta dish is so easy to prepare and is perfect for a weeknight dinner. It takes less than 30 minutes to put this dish together and is full of cheesy goodness. The Cajun seasoning and smoked sausage add a wonderful flavor. This recipe can easily be doubled for a larger meal. Add a side salad and our garlic cheese biscuits and you’re set.

Ingredients needed for Smoked Sausage Pasta:


Smoked sausage

Diced tomatoes, drained (I use diced tomatoes that have green pepper, celery and onion included)

Heavy whipping cream

Shredded cheddar cheese

Cajun seasoning 

Garlic powder

Worcestershire sauce

Smoked paprika

Notes: This dish serves 3-4 but can easily be doubled. You could also use any type of pasta that your family enjoys. I’ve made this dish with turkey smoked sausage and it’s just as good. It’s also wonderful with andouille sausage.

If you like this dish, you might want to try our Cajun sausage and potatoes. This recipe is true comfort food and is super easy.
