Creamy Cajun Pasta

If you enjoy a big bowl of spicy food every now and then, be sure to add this one to your SAVED recipes. I found the original recipe for Cajun Angel Hair on Delish.com. It was really good but we added additional heavy cream than their recipe. We like a sauce that's a little less thick and we tend to fix ahead and eat later.


INGREDIENTS:
1 small box pasta
1 lb. spicy sausage (bun sized sausage, not ground)
2 tbsp. butter
3 cloves minced garlic
Sliced green onions 
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 tbsp. Cajun seasoning
2 tsp. paprika
1/4 c. dry white wine
1 c. heavy cream (or more)
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
Handfull of mozzarella cheese

 Cook the pasta, drain and set aside while you saute sausage on medium-high stove in a little olive oil.
Move sausage to the side and add butter.
 I chopped about four green onions and about half of a red onion and added them to the butter.
Cook these until the red onions softened a little bit.
 Mix everything and add in the minced garlic. I usually buy the pre-minced garlic you
can find in the produce section. One teaspoon is the equivalent of a garlic clove.
Let it heat through and add the spices.
Reduce heat to medium.
Stir in the cream and wine until blended well. Mix in the seasonings.
Add the cheeses and stir.
Once the cheese is melted, it's ready to spoon over some pasta. 
Serve with garlic bread and a side salad.
