    Pasta and smoked sausage really are the way to start a quick dinner. Smoked sausages are already cooked and pasta is ready in a snap. I like to use up whatever veggies are left in the crisper from the weekend before.

    Luckily, Creamy Cajun Pasta only uses a small amount of cream, which I generally have from coffee. Feel free to get crazy and add whatever ingredients you like, all those odds and ends.

    I’ve also made creamy cajun pasta in a big batches to freeze and packaged for lunch the next week. It is substantial enough to keep me full without being too heavy.

    The spices are delicious and provide a sweet heat, as does the sausage. You can adjust them as you please. Hubby loves things piping spicy, so I usually let him add his own crushed red pepper after the dish is done.
