One-Pot Jambalaya Pasta (With Video)

One Pot Jambalaya Pasta cooks in one pot and is packed with bold Cajun flavor straight out of Louisiana! It is made with all of your favorite jambalaya ingredients and it is sure to knock your socks off.

One Pot Pasta Dinners are my go-to weeknight meal. They taste great and everything cooks in one pot.

Yes, even the pasta cooks in the pot! Cooking everything in one skillet or one pot makes meal prep and clean up easy.

The slow simmer on the stove combines the flavors with minimal effort. When you are looking for a no-fuss family dinner, one pot meals are the best choice.

I'm Ashley from Spoonful of Flavor. I'm back this month with another quick and easy one pot meal. One Pot Jambalaya Pasta is packed with cajun flavor.

The entire meal cooks in less than 35 minutes and is made with the freshest flavors.

Combine chicken, Cajun seasoning, Andoulle sausage, shrimp, peppers, tomatoes, pasta, cheese and a few other simple ingredients in one pot to make dinner easy.

Top the pasta with freshly chopped chives before serving.

Or omit the cheese and sauce all together to make it dairy free. You can even substitute some tomato sauce for the cheese to add additional flavor.
  • You can omit the shrimp, if desired. Simply omit from the recipe.
  • This pasta tastes great (if not better) as leftovers so save some for later and reheat just prior to serving.
