This is a delicious spin on the Cajun dish called Jambalaya only it uses pasta instead of rice. You can adjust the amount of heat to taste.
I'm from Louisiana and this recipe is called Pastalaya, not Jambalasta. - 08 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Excellent! I made this as directed except I skipped the cornstarch (maybe my tomatoes, but I didn't need it), and tossed my sauce with the linguine. I also added the shrimp in the last few minutes with the pasta - I think they could have gotten too done as written. Anyway, fabulous idea and flavors - my guys were thrilled. I threw some chopped green and yellow peppers and chopped parsely on when I served it. Thanks for the recipe - nicely done! - 07 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I used rotini pasta instead of linguine because I like the way it holds the sauce. I didn't use chicken, but it was still yummy with just the shrimp and sausage. It was spicy, but my picky daughter liked it too. It made the house smell great while it was cooking. Will definitely make it again! - 11 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
