2bell pepperscored, seeded and sliced (I used red and green)
1small yellow onionsliced or chopped
2tablespoonsCajun Spice Mix,recipe below
2cupsfreshly shredded Parmesan cheese
2tablespoonschopped fresh Italian Parsley
Donna's Cajun Spice Mix
Combine all Cajun Spice Mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Combine the chicken, sausage, peppers, onion, pasta, chicken stock, wine, 2 tablespoons Cajun Spice Mix, and salt in a Dutch oven or 12" braising pan. Stir to combine. Cover and bring to a boil. Remove the cover and cook until the pasta is al dente (has a bite to it), 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep the pasta from sticking.
Remove from the heat and add the Parmesan cheese. Stir until the cheese melts into the pasta. Add the cream and stir to combine. Sprinkle with the parsley.
Slightly adapted from The Simple Kitchen
You can easily control the spice level in this dish. If you'd prefer a more mild dish, use mild smoked sausage and cut the cayenne pepper down to 1/2 teaspoon.
