I just don’t think you can ever have too many one pot meals in your arsenal of recipes. It is even better when the one pot meal is loaded with TONS of flavor, cheese and is super easy.
One pot…thats all
The beauty of this dish is that with everything being cooked in the same pot the flavors just keep building as you continue cooking, giving this dish a TON of flavor. First you start with the chicken, spices then the sausage and then comes the cream and pasta.
Everything comes together perfectly and then you stir in the cheese to finish off this super easy meal.
OH the sauce
One of my favorite parts of this dish is the sauce. As the pasta cooks the cream and chicken stock come together to create a rich and velvety sauce that coats the pasta, chicken and sausage perfectly. Then when you add in the cheese it becomes even better.
Now if you do not want to add in the cheese you don’t have too but I highly recommend it.
Options, Options, Options
This dish is very versatile. I prefer chicken and sausage but if you would like to use only one you could use just chicken or just sausage. Just adjust cooking time in the beginning as needed.
You could also change up the cheese. I used parmesan but you could use a combo of cheese such as an italian blend.
A little kick
There is a little kick from the cajun seasoning but it is not too much. It has just enough to make it pop a little and bring out all the best flavors from the chicken and sausage.
If you do not want any spice you could use just salt, pepper, garlic powder and a little paprika.
