One Pot Cajun Shrimp and Sausage Pasta
Things are busy during the week over at my house. No, I mean suuuuper busy.
Here’s my schedule: Mon-Wed I babysit my 1 yr old granddaughter from 8am to 2pm. Monday night’s we have Cub Scouts, Tues & Thurs nights we have Karate, every other Friday we drive Ethan to Arizona to spend the weekend with his ‘other’ grandparents. And, of course during the day, we work. I try to clean up the house but that’s if-y. You do if-y cleaning too, right? But, I still have to feed everyone. Every.Single.Night.
And, since I’m on my high horse about not throwing good $$ at drive-thru windows anymore, I have to actually cook. And no, cereal for dinner doesn’t count. I love one pot meals not only because they are quick and fit in my busy schedule but the clean-up…. ONE POT! My One Pot Cajun Shrimp & Sausage Pasta Recipe is an easy weeknight meal with peppers, onions, shrimp, sausage and kick’n spices. Almost no prep time, just throw it in the pot and go! As Emeril says “BAM”

For this One Pot Meal, I picked up some Jack Link’s Wild Side Sausages at Walmart. They’re on rollback for just $3.48 from now until Memorial Day. Look for them in the packaged meat section, grab a bunch for grilling up! For this dish, I used Jack Link’s Wild Side Sausages Original flavor.
Jack Link’s Wild Side Sausages are high in protein and come in 3 flavors – Original, Jalapeño, & Cheddar. They have no fillers, no added MSG, no artificial colors or flavors, and bonus for me, they’re gluten free. Happy taste buds, happy tummy!

Very nice recipe. It uses many uber-basic staples that I always have like Cajun seasoning, Old Bay, and fettuccine. Adding shopping tips is a great addition too, with tips about what’s on SALE. I love that! Your pics are nicely styled too, which adds so much to a recipe. After all we start enjoying a dish with our eyes, and our noses. I’m bookmarking you, and adding this one to my Pocket <http://getpocket.com".
