Easy Cajun Cream Sauce

This Cajun cream sauce recipe uses only a handful of ingredients, but it’s oh so delicious! You can use your own Cajun seasoning, or keep it simple with a purchased spice blend – both options work well! If you like a little more heat and want to make a spicy Cajun cream sauce, add up to 1 more tablespoon of Cajun seasoning than what is written below – that’ll surely kick it up a notch!

It’s easy to get in a dinner rut when you have hungry kids and are short on time! Chicken is usually my go-to ingredient in pastas because it’s quick and easy to prepare. But after making this delicious sausage dish, I might have to change my ways and add some sausage variety more often!

How To Make A Cajun Pasta Sauce

  1. Cook your sausage according to the directions on the package and then slice it into coin-sized pieces
  2. Over medium to high heat, cook the sausage and bell peppers in a skillet for about 3 minutes
  3. Be sure to turn them occasionally so one side doesn’t burn
  4. Add in the minced garlic and cook for an additional 30 seconds
  5. Add the heavy cream and Cajun seasoning to the skillet and bring everything to a boil
  6. Reduce the heat and let the sauce simmer for several minutes until it begins to thicken
  7. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese
