Cooking Instructions

Step 1: In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil.  Add onion and peppers and cook until soft, then add sausages and cook until browned.  Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute, then add chicken.  Season with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper and cook, stirring often, until chicken is golden and cooked through.

Step 2: Add penne and stir, then pour in diced tomatoes and chicken broth.  Simmer until pasta is al dente and almost all liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

Step 3: Stir in heavy cream and cheddar until melty.

Step 4: Serve with Parmesan and parsley.
