Rotini with Spicy Andouille Sauce

"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!

    Wow, this was unusual, but we just loved it. Instead of the tabasco, I threw in one teaspoon of Cajun seasoning blend, and added 2 carrots to the veggies. It was easy, flavorful, and delicious. I loved the tangy, tart flavors. Thank you!

    Fantastic! Didn't have thyme, but everything else was on hand and it was delectable. Spicy, but worthwhile!

    i'm giving this 3 stars just because i think i may have messed it up by using jalepeno pepper sausage. it was a bit too tomato-y for my taste, but it was pretty good. i will definitely give it another shot. chalk this one up to operator error! :)
