This is the perfect weeknight recipe for a family, or for individuals looking to enjoy leftovers the next day. The flavours are bold, delicious, has the perfect amount of spice yet creamy at the same time. I love serving this dish with a side of toasted buttery garlic bread and adding on garnishes like parmesan and fresh parsley.

What’s Cajun Seasoning?

It’s a seasoning blend originating in southern America, but mainly Louisiana. The seasoning is a spicy blend featuring paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, peppers, oregano and thyme.

How to Make Cajun Shrimp Pasta with Sausage

First start by prepping your ingredients. Ensure all ingredients are nearby as things will come together rather quickly. Next, season, saute, and remove from pan your the shrimp. Add your sausage and cook until browned and nicely caramelized, then remove. In the same skillet, add your onions and garlic, saute until transparent and fragrant, then add liquids – chicken stock, cream, crushed tomatoes and worcestershire sauce. Add in your seasoning, cajun seasoning, granulated white sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, dried parsley flakes, cayenne pepper (optional), smoked paprika, salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Lastly add your parmesan cheese, allow to simmer until blended then add back your pasta and sausage then shrimp. Mix together until incorporated using a tong, garnish with more parm and fresh parsley, serve and enjoy.

TSS Note – sugar cuts the acidity of the tomatoes and creates an overall more balanced sauce

Instructions

1

Season shrimp with cajun seasoning, salt and freshly ground black pepper until well coated.

2

Slice sausage, cut onions, mince garlic and set aside.

3

Heat a large pot of water to boil pasta.

4

Heat a large skillet or saute pan over medium high heat and drizzle with 1 tbsp of olive oil.

5

Add shrimp and cook for 2-4 minutes, flipping at the halfway point. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Add sausage and a little more olive oil if needed to brown sausage until caramelized on both sides, around 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

6

Add pasta to boiling water and cook pasta according to package instructions or until al dente.

7

If needed add another drizzle of olive oil to the pan, and saute onions, garlic, and thyme until fragrant and softened.

8

Add chicken broth, cream, crushed tomatoes and worcestershire sauce stir until combined and bring to a simmer scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan.

9

Continue to allow sauce to simmer, and flavour with cajun seasoning, granulated white sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, dried parsley flakes, cayenne pepper (optional), smoked paprika, salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Stir until well combined and allow to simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes.

10

Add in parmesan cheese, and continue to stir occasionally for another 5 minutes. Then add in cooked pasta and sausage stirring to combine and heated through around 2 - 3 minutes. Then add shrimp, stir and remove.

11

Garnish with fresh parsley, fresh cracked black pepper and more parmesan cheese if desired.

Notes

The longer you simmer, the more the flavours will come out. Allow a few minutes in-between steps for the sauce to come to life. // The sugar cuts the acidity of the tomatoes and creates an overall more balanced sauce.

      Hi Randy, the thyme sprigs are to be added when sauteeing the onions and garlic, the worcestershire sauce to be added with the chicken broth, cream, and crushed tomatoes. Thank you so much, everything should be reflected now. Enjoy!
