Recipe by Melissa Spangler

This is a classic jambalaya recipe substituting rotini pasta for the rice. I prefer the pasta over the rice. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown sausage in bacon drippings; remove, set aside and add flour. Use a heavy black pot and brown flour in drippings to make a dark roux.
  2. Add onions, parsley, and garlic. Cook until soft, then add water, salt & pepper and browned sausage. Bring to boil and add pasta.
  3. Lower heat and cook for about 30 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally to be sure pasta doesn't stick to bottom.
  4. After pasta is done and it's too watery, remove lid and let cook for a few minutes until liquid is absorbed.
