In this post I’m sharing a recipe for my Cajun Chicken and Sausage Pasta. As busy mother, I’ve learned to appreciate quick budget dinners! Between helping my son with homework, and all of my other tasks, I honestly don’t have the luxury to create three course meals every day. When I’m I don’t have a lot of time to spare, I always turn to my trusty skillet. I know that I can always create some type of delicious skillet meal, with ease, in a timely matter. This meal is incredibly delicious, and can be made in under 20 minutes!
