How Spicy is this Cajun Pasta Recipe?
Well, it’s moderately spicy. For those who are not familiar with the spicy life, this Cajun Sausage Pasta recipe might be just a little intense for you. If you’ve ever had some classic Mexican guacamole or some stuffed jalapeño poppers, I think you’ll be able to handle this spice just fine! The heat really comes from the Dickey’s Caribbean Chipotle Rub, so if you want it a little less spicy, just add a little less of the rub. Also, to keep in mind, the cream cheese in this recipe does break up a little bit of the spice. Our tip to you: Taste and Season as you go. You can always ADD seasoning but it’s a little tougher to kill the heat in a recipe after the fact. This Cajun Sausage Pasta recipe can literally be as spicy or not spicy as you like so just really go for it and experiment with your heat levels!
Which Shape of Pasta To Use in your Cajun Sausage Pasta?
Totally up to you! Some people like penne in their Cajun pasta while others are partial to linguine. Really any shape that you love will work in this Cajun Pasta Recipe so you don’t have to worry about going wrong with your pasta choice.
Cajun Sausage Pasta Recipe Pro Tips:
- Brown Your Kielbasa (Smoked Sausage) and save grease from the pan to add flavors to veggies
- Use cream cheese to add slight sweetness and thicken your sauce
- Use Dickey’s Caribbean Chipotle Rub to add spice and compliment the sweetness of the cream cheese
- Reserve a little pasta water for your sauce to help thicken as well. The starch in the pasta water will help bind your sauce to the pasta.
