An easy recipe of Pasta with Sausage and Cajun Cream Sauce the whole family will love.
- 3/4 1 lb. box bow tie pasta
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 4 links sweet sausage (about 1 lb. fresh link sausage)
- 1 pint heavy cream (or whipping cream)
- 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
- 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and put back in the pot.
While the pasta is cooking, using a sharp knife, make long slits on the outside casing of the sausage links. Gently remove the casing from the sausage.
Heat the skillet over medium heat and add the butter and oil. Cook onions for about 3 minutes and then add the garlic.
Bump the heat up to medium-high and add the crumbled sausage to the pan. Continue cooking for about 5-7 minutes, continuously breaking up sausage with a spatula as it cooks. Make sure sausage is cooked through.
Lightly salt and pepper as this cooks.
Add the heavy cream and Cajun seasoning to the skillet; stirring to combine. Let simmer for about 4-5 minutes.
Add the bow tie pasta to the skillet and gently stir until the pasta is well coated.
For this pasta recipe, use fresh Italian sausage from the meat counter if possible. You can lower the amount of sausage to 2 links and then use the other 2 links for another recipe. Try our sausage rice and beans recipe for another great family meal. This saves money on your grocery bill and the fresh sausage can be used in two recipes.
Add the cooked bow tie pasta to the skillet with the cooked sausage and cream. Don’t forget to add the Cajun seasonings!
