Cajun Chicken Alfredo Pasta

Let’s take a trip down south and go to a place where Cajun flavors and creamy Alfredo sauce blend together in perfect harmony. Because this pasta recipe is so easy to make, I grew up enjoying a version of this recipe quite often.

The only difference in the recipe I enjoyed back then is the type of sausage used. For my recipe, I prefer to go with chicken sausage but feel free to use your favorite.

How to Making Cajun Chicken Alfredo Pasta:

  • Begin by cooking your onions and peppers for a few minutes until they become soft and the onions translucent.
  • Chop your sausage into slices and add to the pot along with the Holy Trinity.
  • Once everything starts to cook down, add your sauce ingredients to the same pot so that all of those flavors can infuse together.
  • Finally, add the pre-cooked pasta and mix everything together in one pot.
