Rotini with Spicy Andouille Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

I created this to celebrate my bit of Cajun heritage on Mardi Gras 2004 (many of my father's family lived near Lake Charles, Louisiana)! If you're not into hot and spicy andouille sausage, any smoked sausage can be substituted, but try to use rotini or any other similar pasta (penne, rigatoni or mostaciolli works well, too.)

This was great! I removed the andouille from the casing and crumbled it and used a big can of whole stewed tomatoes instead of crushed. We loved it. Thanks!
