Delicious Andouille Sausage makes any Cajun dish taste great. Pair it up with pasta and what a great meal! What’s nice about this dish is you can control the heat buy using more or less of the Cajun seasonings. If you’re not a big fan of the heat, leave the Cajun seasonings out all together as the Andouille Sausage has heat of its own. If you love the heat, add more Cajun seasonings.

If you are new to cooking or if you just don’t feel like making your own alfredo sauce, use store bought. By the time you add all of the ingredients, even the store bought Alfredo sauce will taste very good. I decided for a very quick meal and used a jar of Alfredo sauce which I don’t usually do. Whatever way you decide to make this, it will taste great.
