    Yum! Looks delicious. At first I thought the red peppers were sundried tomatoes, and I can't help but think that would be delicious!

    I tore this recipe out of that issue too! You're right about the con of the non-healthy part. But the wheel pasta is drawing me in.

    Love the cajun flavor – sounds like a great comfort meal! I did a long distance relationship with my now hubby for years – not fun!

    I made this tonight for my family and it was pretty tasty. I thought it needed a little salt.

    I stumbled upon this website/recipe when I googled Cajun mac and cheese.after enjoying a different Cajun mac and cheese at a restaurant that was delicious. That recipe also had chunks of chicken. That might be a good addition as well.

    Thanks for posting this for foodies like me!

      I think the salt level is really dependent on the sausage you use. Some sausage is so salty you may not need much salt in the rest of the dish! That's why it's best to taste as you go. Chicken sounds like a wonderful addition, thanks for the tip πŸ™‚

    My fiance and I did long distance for two years and it was tough! Honestly, I think if you can get through that as a couple, you can get through anything! When we did see each other it never mattered what we did because we we're just so excited to be with each other. Seriously, just going to the grocery store was exciting.

    On a separate note, this is the most unique Cajun recipe I've seen all day! I shared it with my readers in a Mardi Gras recipe round up. Thanks for sharing!

    I made this for donner last night – I totally loved it. I did use a few different kinds of cheese (that was what I had in the fridge) and cut down on the cajun spice so my kids would eat it and they loved it too! Thanks for a great recipe!
