  • 1 ring (13 ounces) Andouille smoked sausage, sliced diagonally into ¼ inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced (approximately 1 cup, 160g)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces cherry tomatoes, quartered (approximately 1½ cups, 226g)
  • 3 cups (720 g) chicken broth
  • ½ cup (119g) heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 8 ounces dry campanelle pasta (or pasta of choice)
  • 1 cup (113g) Monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup (25g) parmesan cheese, grated
  • parsley for garnish (optional)


  • In a large pot over medium-high heat, add oil. Once hot, add sausage and cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side, or until brown.
  • Transfer to a plate and tent to keep warm. To the same pan add onions and cook until softened (about 5-8 minutes).
  • Add garlic. Cook for one more minute, or until fragrant.
  • Add tomatoes, broth, cream, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, dry pasta noodles, and cooked sausage, stir to combine. Press noodles down slightly so they are fully covered with the liquid.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until pasta is cooked al dente. Stir occasionally. (Please note: Cooking times may vary, depending on the type of noodle you used.)
  • Remove pot from heat. Add cheeses and stir together until cheeses are melted. Let rest, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve hot.
