I’m sure you’ve all heard of Jambalaya, right?
It’s pretty delicious. But have you heard of Pastalaya?
I didn’t even realize it was a thing until we went to my sister-in-law and brother-in-law’s wedding reception in Baton Rouge, Louisiana back in 2014.
But I’m so glad I know what it is, because it’s so good. I like it more than Jambalaya!
It’s pasta with a few different veggies, sausage, chicken, and sometimes shrimp.
Forrest and I have been wanting to make it for awhile now, but it’s one of those things that just always got pushed the to the side.
Until a few weeks ago! I saw some Hillshire Farm sausages at the store, and it reminded me of Pastalaya. I decided to pick up a package of the Hillshire Smoked Sausage. I was all set to take out some chicken to defrost at home, when I noticed they had chicken sausage! Forrest and I thought it would be fun to use this instead of traditional chicken breast. Our Kroger Store (King Soopers) was having a great sale – two Hillshire Farm sausages for $5 (this deal is one until the 19th of April while supplies last!), so that made this meal even more affordable. We always love cooking with sausage, so I couldn’t wait to get home to get cooking!
We made this for my parents, and we all loved it (well, except Jack. He said he liked the pasta only. Ha!) It’s a very easy, one pot meal that is packed with TONS of flavor.
I can’t wait to make it again. Seriously soooo good!
