Grandpa Les' Lucious Pasta Dish

Dish: Entrees
Dish Type: Pastas & Noodles
Cooking Method: Stove Top
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Prep Time:
Cook Time:

  • cup 1 - frozen shrimp (more or less to suit your taste)
  • each 1 - Sausage (Polish, Kielbasa, Cajun or Andullie - your choice)
  • each 1 - diced onion
  • each 1 - diced bell pepper
  • clove 3 - chopped garlic
  • each 1 - sliced zuchinni
  • each 1 - sliced carrots
  • cup 1 - corn
  • bag 1 - pasta (your choice)
  • tablespoon 3 - oil

Boil & drain your pasta
Sautee the chicken and sausage in a little oil until done. 

Add the hardest veggies (Carrots) and then the softer ones to follow along with the onions and peppers and garlic.

Add the shrimp and cook until just cooked through (they will finish cooking while you are getting them to the table).

Mix everything with your pasta. Salt & pepper to taste.
Serve with a green salad and Garlic Bread.
(We like to pour a little italian dressing on our pasta).
The cool thing about this recipe is that you can add or delete whatever you like, and it's still yummie.  Don't like shellfish?  Leave out the shrimp.  Vegetarian?  Just use the veggies.  Have leftover veggies from last night?  Use them and just add them at the end.

My question is the same as the previous reader's. Is there a sauce that binds these ingredients together? You might check with someone at teh web site about correcting your recipe since it is confusing about using chicken, but not listing it in the ingredients. It sounds good though

This sounds great. Just one question. I don't see chicken in the ingredients, but the directions say to cook chicken and sausage together. Can you clarify? Thanks!
