Ingredients
  • 1 large boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into small bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 pound andouille sausage cut into 1/4” rounds
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 5-6 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 ounces penne pasta
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch used to thicken sauce if needed
  • 2-3 roma tomatoes diced
  • Chopped parsley and shredded Parmesan cheese for garnish if desired
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet cook chicken, sausage and onions with the olive oil and cajun seasoning over medium heat. This takes about 5-7 minutes. Stir in the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the broth, milk, pasta and cream. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes (or until pasta is tender) stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  2. Stir in the grated Parmesan and if your sauce is thin combine the 1 teaspoon cornstarch with a little water and stir into the pasta and cook for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Top your pasta with the chopped tomatoes and garnish if desired.
