Creamy Cajun Pasta with Sausage


We are having the coldest weather in two years according to the local meteorologists. Cold weather like this calls for a great comfort food dish like this one. Creamy pasta with a kick. I tossed in some smoked turkey sausage that I had on hand and served it with a salad and breadsticks. It was delicious!
