Spicy Shrimp and Smoked Sausage Pasta

Recipe by graniteangel
READY IN: 1hr 15mins




  • Cook Tortellini in boiling water just until they start to float. Rinse with cold water. Toss pasta with the teaspoon of olive oil to avoid sticking.
  • Try to use either andouille or Emeril's kicked up smoked sausage. You want a spicy sausage for this dish.
  • Melt the butter in a sauce pan. Saute smoked sausage, onion, celery, bell peppers, and garlic. Let cook on Med-high for 3-4 minutes. Add shrimp and let cook another 2 minutes, or until shrimp looks mostly pink.
  • Add wine, cream, creole seasoning, herbs, hot sauce and fresh black pepper. Turn temp down to Med and let reduce for 3-4 minutes.
  • Pour sauce over the pasta and toss in the Parmesan cheese.
  • Serve imediately with french bread and butter. Goes great with a nice salad. I recommend a nice crisp chardonnay wine to go with it.
  • Sometimes I even add catfish nuggets to this dish. I saute them with the shrimp and sausage. It's pretty good that way too.
