This recipe is a must for all you pasta lovers out there. It's mildly spicy and easy to enjoy........ Chose a nice dry Italian wine to both cook with as well as serve to your guests. (If you don't like the Cajun Sausage chose Italian or spicy but I find Hilshire Farms Sausage has the best textured sausage for this dish.)
