Jammie's Pasta

I created this recipe a few years ago for a wedding reception. We needed an inexpensive way to feed a LOT of people and what a better way to fill hungry people up, than pasta! A family friend requested the recipe for her daughter's wedding reception, so I thought that I would share it with everyone. This recipe can be doubled, tripled, quadrupled, and so on to feed as many as you need to...I hope you enjoy!

Jammie’s Pasta
1 stick plus 2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 Tbsp minced garlic
6 green onions (white and green parts), sliced
16 ounces sliced mushrooms
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed
1 pound smoked sausage, sliced
Cajun seasoning to taste
32 ounces of your choice of pasta (I like to use different pastas with a variety of colors to make for a pretty presentation).

Bring a large stock pot full of salted water to boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions. Drain and return to stock pot; toss with 2 Tbsp butter and set aside.
 Melt remaining butter in a large skillet; add olive oil.  On medium heat add onions, garlic, bell pepper, mushroom, salt and pepper; sauté until all vegetables are tender. Remove vegetables and set aside. Add chicken and sausage and cook until the chicken is cooked thoroughly. 
Combine pasta, chicken, sausage, and vegetables to a large serving bowl; sprinkle with Cajun seasoning to taste; stir thoroughly to incorporate all ingredients. Enjoy!

Servings: 8-10 Dinner Servings or
Approximately 20-25 Party/Reception Servings
