How to make Easy Cajun Jambalaya Pasta?

Step 1: Add the chicken, shrimp, sausage, Cajun spices, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, red onion, garlic, Kosher salt, and black pepper in a large bowl. Mix well until blended.

Step 2: Heat the canola oil in a large skillet or a cast-iron skillet over high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the mixture to the bowl in two batches and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes or until cooked through.

Step 3: To the pan, add the tomatoes and pour in the chicken stock. Continue to cook with the ingredients in the pan for another 1 to 2 minutes. Add the cooked pasta and toss to coat with the sauce.

Step 4: Serve the Cajun Jambalaya Pasta right away garnished with some parsley and the remaining minced bell peppers. Enjoy!


To prevent the shrimp from overcooking, take them out of the pan and transfer them to a separate bowl. Return the shrimp to the pan after the ingredients are cooked.
