Pasta is one of my absolute favorite meals and this One Pot Jambalaya Pasta recipe is the the perfect meal for lunch, dinner or even to reheat for breakfast. Throw everything in a pot and your meal is done in 20 minutes to 30 minutes.
My favorite thing about this jambalaya pasta is that its so easy to tweak and adjust to your taste and preference. If you don’t like shrimps, you can easily just leave them out or replace them with something you’d prefer, If you are more into spicy food, you can add more pepper, or even add any veggies of your choice to it. Same goes for the protein, i used smoked chicken and smoked chicken sausages, you can simply replace that with turkey, mushroom or you could even use all of them. Its still going to turn out amazingly delicious.
There are so many reasons this recipe is the best, It saves you the stress of doing so many dishes because it is ONE POT!, it is packed full of flavors, delicious, i could go on and on, but i believe you get the picture, lol. This recipe has so much flavor and spice to it and its absolutely scrumptious. Try this out and i want to hear all about it.
