Dinner in 20 minutes? Yes it’s possible to have a delicious dinner packed with bell peppers and pasta in 20 minutes or less. Like most moms I’m busy in the evenings and I don’t always plan the best. That is one reason why I like this Easy 20 Minute Sausage Cajun Pasta. It has the ingredients that I always have on hand and requires minimal prep work. I can do the chopping, while my son is doing his reading, at the counter in the kitchen. In the time it takes him to do his reading, I can have dinner on the table!
Look at that amazing color in this dish. I am drawn to this dish because of the pop of color in everything, it just makes it so enticing for me and the family. Sometimes I can’t believe it can be cooked so quickly. Not only does this work for an easy and quick dinner, but it fits great into a busy lunch schedule. My husband comes home most days for lunch and it’s nice to not serve him a cold sandwich everyday, he appreciates my efforts too.
