Cajun pasta with chicken and chicken sausage

My dinner tonight was delicious! I’ve seen a lot of recipes for Pasta with Chicken and sausage sauce over pasta – I’ve made a few variations myself, but this was my best one yet. The sauce isn’t super thick, which I really liked because it coated everything really well.

I had leftover chicken breasts, but if you make this from uncooked chicken, just cook the chicken breasts first and set aside.

The Chicken Sausage I used is fully cooked, just slice it into circles – this is the one I used from Aldi Foods.

If you make pasta often like I do, this is a great variation of what to make with pasta - I love using different shaped pasta to mix it up and make it fun!
