Mardi Gras Pasta
1 lb cooked pasta 1lb Cajun Sausage, sliced

1 jar cheese sauce 1lb Crawfish tails
(I like Ragu Double Cheddar) 1lb Shrimp

1 can of Rotel, drained Cajun Seasoning, black pepper, garlic powder to taste

Cook all the meat for a few minutes then add drained tomatoes and cheese and seasonings. Add cooked pasta and serve.

Chicken and Cajun Sausage Gumbo
First you make a Roux:

2 cups plain flour
1 cup vegetable oil
In a medium skillet over high heat add the flour and oil. Cook and stir constantly for 10 minutes or until the color of peanut butter. This can be done in the microwave in a glass dish, stirring every few minutes until dark enough.

4 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast
2 lbs. sliced Cajun sausage
Chopped green onion, celery and bell pepper
{as much or as little as you want}
Cajun Seasoning, black pepper, garlic powder to taste
3-4 quarts of hot water
After the roux is as dark as you want it, add all other ingredients and let it cook uncovered until chicken is cooked. If the gumbo is not dark enough, Kitchen Bouquet can be added for color.

Makes 7 cups

Any seafood or meat can be added. Cooked okra can be added.
Serve over hot white rice with a scoop of potato salad and crackers or french bread and enjoy!
