Cajun Angel Hair Pasta

So I’m a big fan of spicy food! I partially blame my boyfriend, I cook for him most of the time and he LOVES spicy food, so I guess it’s grown on me. My mom told me that when I was baby I loved eating salsa, but as I grew up and became a preteen, spicy food was, well too spicy for me, so I rarely ate it. Guess you never stray far from the true you cause I’m back on to the heat 🔥 With that being said, when I saw this recipe on Delish, I knew I had to try it! Since I’m pretty well versed in making cajun pasta (trust me, it’s a staple at my place), I went ahead and did my own thing, so I didn’t follow the recipe exactly. I’ll post the link to the original recipe here, and below I’ll let y’all know what I did personally.

  • 12 oz. angel hair
  • 1 lb. chicken sausage

I decided to add some spinach to mine because I love to sneak in greens whenever I can. As for the brussel sprouts I just pan fried them in olive oil and seasoned them. This was my first time using and cooking chicken sausage. I really liked the robust flavor and less saltiness as opposed to regular sausage. This is something I’ll definitely be cooking again. This recipe was a hit for dinner last night. Let me know if you try this as well and what variations you used, if any! Hope y’all are all eatin good, cause you know I am 😋
