Heat a skillet over medium heat and brown the sausage until caramelized.
Add the onion and green pepper and stir fry for about 5 minutes or until vegetables are soft.
Deglaze the pan with a splash of white wine.
Cook until the wine is absorbed then add the tomatoes and chicken broth and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the Cajun seasoning and black pepper.
Add the cream, cover and simmer until reduced for about 10-15 minutes.
Add the pasta and cook for 2-3 minutes, until sauce is thickened and pasta is cooked through.
- For less spice, add less Cajun seasoning. If you add less Cajun seasoning, you may need to add additional salt to taste.
- Browning the sausage first helps to add a rich flavor to the dish. You can skip this step if you're in a hurry, but I highly recommend doing it for the best flavor.
- Cook the pasta al dente (not fully cooked) - it will finish cooking in the sauce. I recommend taking about 2 minutes off the package cook time.
