As Heard On WROK – Cajun Chicken and Sausage Pasta

Makes 8 servings
Active Prep Time: 20 minutes  Cook Time: 20 minutes

“This is the perfect dish to make for company.  It makes a ton and it tastes so yummy.  My neighbor made this last  year for our crawfish boil and it was almost as big of a hit as the crawfish.”

    3 boneless skinless chicken breast halves – cut into bite sized chunks
    1 lb smoked sausages – sliced – andouille if you can find it   
    2 tablespoons olive oil                                        
    1/2 onion – chopped                                            
    1/2 green bell pepper – chopped                                
    5 cloves garlic – minced                                       
    1 15-ounce can diced stewed tomatoes                           
    2 – 3 teaspoons cajun seasoning                                
    1 lb penne pasta noodles                                                                       

1)  Boil pasta.

2)  In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook sliced sausage and chicken chunks until chicken is cooked through.  Drain grease and spoon chicken and sausage onto a plate.  Set aside.

3)  In the same skillet, over medium heat, pour olive oil into skillet.  Saute onion and bell pepper for 3 minutes.  Add garlic and saute for an additional 30 seconds.  Add tomatoes with juice and cajun seasoning.  Stir well.
