I love a good one pot recipe, don’t you? I especially love all things pasta. I’m not sure what it is about the stuff but I could happily live on it! This ridiculously easy Cajun Sausage Pasta is high up there with my all time favourites. Just like my easy sausage casserole– made in just one pot with zero fuss & bags of flavour, this recipe is perfect for people who hate washing up and love great tasting food! So that’s pretty much all of us then right?

Here is what you will need to serve 4.


  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 200g Smoked Sausage, Sliced
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, Crushed
  • 500 ml Chicken Stock
  • 300 ml Double Cream
  • 1 tbsp Cajun Seasoning
  • 250g Tortiglioni Pasta *
  • 50g Parmesan Cheese, Grated
  • Handful of Fresh Parsley, Chopped (Optional)

*You can use any dried pasta shapes you like


Essential Equipment

  • Large Saucepan

Step 1: Cook the Sausage

First heat your large saucepan over a medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the oil and sliced sausage. Cook for a few minutes until it browns a little then add the garlic & cook for another minute or two until fragrant.

Step 2: Getting Saucy

Then add the stock, cream and cajun seasoning. Give it a good mix and bring it up to the boil.

Step 3: Turn Up the Heat

Next add in the pasta, give it a quick stir and bring back to the boil again. Reduce the heat to a simmering boil and cook for 15-20 minutes until the pasta is cooked to your liking.

Make sure to stir it frequently, particularly towards the end as you don’t want it to catch and burn on the bottom.

Step 4: Cheesy

Finally, when the pasta is cooked, add in the parmesan cheese and give it a good old mix until it’s melted and evenly distributed.

Step 5: Tadah!

If you like you can stir through a handful of chopped fresh parsley or simply scatter some on top for garnish. With or without, this is going to taste amazing – don’t worry!

This is a properly delicious dinner that is insanely easy to make and even easier to clean up after. There is literally nothing to not love about this recipe! I implore you to give it a try for yourself and see!

    Hi I like this recipe, but I was wondering if there is a dairy-free alternative recipe?

    Hey! Yeah you could totally do a dairy free version. Here in England we have plant based ‘double cream’ which would be a really nice alternative! Just skip the parmesan cheese and pay close attention to seasoning with salt and pepper instead :)

    Coconut milk might work, it would make the sauce a little thinner though. Almond milk would probably taste a bit odd against the Cajun flavour I think.

    That looks really good. In our area we do not have any double cream, I will substitute with heavy / whipping cream.
