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.

Smoked Sausage Pasta

8 ounces of rigatoni

8 ounces of smoked sausage, sliced

14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes, drained (I use diced tomatoes that have green pepper, celery and onion included)

1 cup of heavy whipping cream

2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning 

1 teaspoon of garlic powder

1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon of smoked paprika

Cook pasta according to package. Brown sausage over medium heat in an oven safe skillet for about 4-5 minutes until browned.  Mix in diced tomatoes, cream, Cajun seasoning, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce and smoked paprika and simmer for 5 minutes to blend spices. Add in pasta and cheese and stir. Broil in oven for 5 minutes to get the cheese really cheesy.

Serves 3-4.
