Better than Leftovers, Jambalaya Cream Pasta

I promised a second meal and wouldn’t you know I deliver.  Introduce yourself to the better than leftovers Jambalaya Cream Pasta.  I don’t know about you, but cooking up a whole chicken left us with lots of extra cacciatore.  I sent a few rounds with Scott for lunch and ate a round or two of it myself, but sooner or later you’ve had enough of the same dish.

Scott’s been “not so subtly” hinting the past few days (love ya babe) that he really wanted a bowl of jambalaya to come and grace his dinner hour.  I am not one to disappoint, so I came up with this tasty little concoction.   This pasta was so good, that I could have eaten it every day for a week and not gotten sick of it.  I’m thinking I need to make cacciatore on a regular basis from here on out, just so I can have this pasta.

Oh, and if you get to the end, look at the picture and say “Mighty Mo!  Where did she get that beautiful roll?”  Well, you can find the recipe waaaaaay back on the website HERE.  It’s a recipe for breadsticks, but you can just make some balls, throw them into a muffin tin and cook up some gorgeous little beauties to accompany your meal.

Ingredients Needed:

2 Tbsp of Butter
1 Zucchini, Chopped
1 Large Celery Stalk, Chopped
1/2 Onion, Chopped
2 Cloves of Garlic, Minced
2 Cups of Cacciatore Chicken, Deboned
11/2 Cups of Diced Ham
1 Tbsp of Cajun Seasoning
2 Cups of Cacciatore Sauce
1/2 Cup of Chicken Broth
1/2 Cup of Heavy Cream
10oz of Small Penne Pasta

First up, add your butter to a large saucepan and melt it on medium heat.  Once melted add in your chopped zucchini, celery, onion, chicken, ham and garlic.  Cook it up for about 4 or 5 minutes.

Now add in your cajun seasoning.

Finally, turn the heat down to low and add in the chicken broth and the heavy cream.

Stir it up and let it heat through for a minute or two and Voila!  You’re done with your better than leftovers pasta. Dinner is served my friends; for the second time.
