  • 1 pkg 1 lb smoked sausage or kielbasa
  • 1 1/2 cups tubular pasta like penne or elbows
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tsp cajun/creole seasoning
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas defrosted
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 green onion sliced
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes


  • Slice sausage in 1/4-inch slices.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown sausage well. Remove from pan; set aside.
  • Return pan to heat and deglaze pan with the 1 1/2 cups water. Add the pasta. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Cook until water is absorbed by pasta (about 8 minutes).
  • Add the cream, peas, parmesan and cajun seasoning to the pan; stir well. Add the browned sausage back to the pan; heat through.
  • Top with sliced green onion and grape tomatoes. Serve immediately.
  • Serves 2-4, depending on appetite and accompanying dishes.
