Sausage & Shrimp Rigatoni in a Spicy Parmesan Cream Sauce
Hot sausage and succulent shrimp marry well smothered in a spicy Parmesan cream sauce atop of bed of rigatoni. Doesn’t that just sound absolutely delicious?
I love to try to re-create recipes I’ve enjoyed dining out. Pasta is easy to work with because it goes with so many different ingredients. It’s hard to mess up. And most pasta recipes are kid friendly. This recipe was easy to replicate.
Spicy bits of ground hot sausage and sweet shrimp get dunked in a spicy Parmesan cream sauce for a real Italian treat. Less than 30 minutes from pantry to table, this recipe it’s perfect for a mid week family meal or dinner for two.
Rigatoni holds creamy sauces extremely well. Penne pasta would also work well with this recipe. Sweet red bell peppers add color and contrast perfectly with the bite from the sauce.
This Parmesan cream sauce is the perfect balance between cream and tomatoes. I used marinara because I had a open jar in my fridge. But canned crushed or diced tomatoes would work just as well.
