Cajun Shrimp & Sausage Pasta

A bowl full of creamy noodles and loaded with tons of veggies, cajun seasoning and lots of protein is the epitome of comfort food.  A Creatively Delish favorite and top recipe!

The great part about a dish like this is you can play around with how spicy you actually want it.  Over here at my place, we like things spicy and full of oomph, but maybe you don't like that so much...not a biggie, just slowly add seasoning until it's where you want it!

Go ahead and sautee those veggies to perfectly cooked yet crisp perfection.

sautee the veggies

And it will all come together in magical, creamy, Cajun perfection.
