Pasta Jambalaya

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Tona C.

This was very good and easy to make. I used fat free cheese instead of what was called for so the points should be a little less. This is 5 points for those on the Weight Watchers diet. From the kitchen of Michele Harvey Thornburg, Moberly MO.

I found a new "favorite" recipe! I was in the mood for a cajun pasta, but not in the mood for a lot of work. This was so delicious and easy that I promptly made another batch after dinner, for the next night. I did add about a cup of tomato juice, since I wanted it to be more saucy. I added an extra tsp of seasoning, too. Both my teens liked it and that is saying a lot! I used a chicken kielbasa and omitted the green chilies. I used a sharp white cheddar and mozz. cheese since I had it on hand (the cheddar had a nice tangy flavor and the mozz. made it creamy). The leftovers reheat great, too. Thanks TLC- Roxygirl
