    Melissa_8201's Note:

    This is a wonderful recipe that I came across on another recipe site. I've modified it slightly to fit my tastes. This sauce is great served over pasta or dirty rice. This recipe is one I typically make for dinner parties or potlucks so it serves a crowd, but it can easily be cut down to a family appropriate amount.

      Oh my gosh, this recipe is scrumptious! I did halve the ingredients and it made the perfect amount for the five of us. I also had to make a couple of substitutions. I had to use a can of diced tomatoes as that was what I had on hand. Also, I've never found andouille sausage here where I live, so I used hickory smoked sausage. My son came home just about the time I got this done, and he asked what I was cooking that smelled sooooo good! Since my husband doesn't eat rice and I was tired of pasta, I decided to serve this over biscuits. It was simply delicious and I love that the whole recipe came together very quickly. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

      WAAAAYYY too salty for my taste. I would omit all salt. I would also look for a recipe for cajun seasoning to make on my own because the seasoning has salt in it too. Wonderful spicy flavor and overall simple to make but too salty!!!

      Excellent dish, I made only a few modifications (16 oz canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh) and left out the salt as the cajun seasoning I use is salty enough. I smoke fresh andouille in a lil chief smoker and it adds a great smokiness to the dish. Served over angel hair pasta - perfect.
