Cajun Tortellini Alfredo – delicious 20 minute dinner recipe! Tortellini and smoked sausage in a delicious cajun alfredo sauce!
Heeeey guys! Today I have a recipe that includes all my favorite things.
Smoked sausage, cheese, and more cheese! And guess what. It’s so easy and will take you no time at all!
Cajun Tortellini Alfredo!
I used the Hillshire Farm® Beef Smoked Sausage in this recipe. This smoked sausage is one thing I know my kids will never complain about – I’ve been known to just brown it up and serve it with barbecue sauce when I’m not feeling like cooking and they really love that!
But for this Cajun Tortellini Afredo recipe, I browned it up with onions and garlic and then tossed in some Cajun seasoning. I used heavy cream and Parmesan cheese to make the Alfredo part of the recipe and then tossed in some cheese tortellini.
Ultimate comfort food! This is exactly the kind of meal I like this time of year. Plus, it was ready in less than 20 minutes! It’s perfect for a weeknight or a night you just don’t feel like being in the kitchen for an hour.
My kids didn’t find it too spicy but you can adjust the cajun seasoning to fit your taste.
This is definitely going to become a staple in our house!
