440 Main's Jambalaya

Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

I have the Paula Deen version of Jambalaya posted, but this one, I have had the pleasure of eating at 440 Main, a very ritzy restaurant where I went to college. It's fancy and a bit on the expensive side, but well worth the money. When I took my gourmet cooking class, the teacher called the restaurant and got the recipe for us to make in class. I was SO happy! This recipe is quick cooking; the prep takes a bit, though.

Extremely easy recipe - flavorful and colorful! What a gret dish to satisfy your draving for Jambalaya when you don't have all day to slave - why would you? This recipe rocks! I used a little extra andouille and blackening spice in place of the shrimp boil seasoning. DD and I ate it for dinner and DH can't wait to get home to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!! You just have to try this one! ;)
