One Pot Pastalaya Recipe

This easy one pot pastalaya has AMAZING cajun flavor and is out of this world delicious.

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.
