Can you tell I have been loving these one-pot dinners? They are the best! I came up with this One Pot Jambalaya Pasta recipe when I was craving Jambalaya but I wanted to make it simplified somehow.
I have had the Jambalaya Pasta at Cheesecake Factory (one of my favs) and wanted to see if I could turn it into a one-pot meal like the One Pot Creamy Garlic Noodles. It was a HUGE success! It literally took minutes to throw this all together and all I had to do was stir it every once in a while. I love how the noodles in these one pot meals soak up all the flavor and seasonings… seriously, SO stinkin’ delicious!
After making this One Pot Jambalaya Pasta, my husband and I were totally fighting over the leftovers. If you want to add shrimp to the mix– don’t add it at the very beginning (they will get overcooked). Throw the shrimp in about 10-15 minutes into the simmering process. They will get nice and pink by the time you are ready to serve. Also, if you would like to give the smoked sausage a little boost of flavor- saute it in a little butter before adding all the other ingredients. If you are in a hurry (like I usually am) you can just throw it in with all the other ingredients. Either way it will taste amazing!
