  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning

In a large pan, cook the sausage over medium-high heat, turning occasionally for 5 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream and Cajun seasoning then bring to a boil. When boiling, lower the heat and allow to simmer until mixture begins to thicken, about 3-4 minutes.

When ready, transfer to a serving bowl. Stir in Parmesan cheese then add cooked pasta to the bowl. Stir, allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.

Yummy Buttered Spaghetti

What you need:

  • 1 cup spaghetti pasta, cooked
  • 1 can whole peeled tomatoes

To make the sauce, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the garlic in the butter for 1 minute. Add the whole peeled tomatoes (including the juices) and a dash of cracked pepper.

Using a spoon, break the tomatoes into smaller chunks. Stir until ingredients are well combined. Allow to simmer, then lower the heat to medium-low and continue to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally (breaking the tomatoes into smaller pieces).

When ready, season with salt then add the cooked spaghetti. Stir until pasta is coated with the sauce. Serve warm.
