  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve tomatoes.

    Stem poblano, seed, and cut into 1/2" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

    Remove sausage from casing, if necessary.

  2. 2

    Cook the Sausage

    Place a large pot over medium-high heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil and sausage to hot pot. Break into smaller pieces until no pink remains and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Transfer sausage to a plate. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Add the Vegetables and Sauce

    Return pot used to cook sausage to medium-high heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil, poblano, and tomatoes to hot pot. Stir occasionally until tender, 3-4 minutes.

    Add cream cheese, cream base, half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish), Cajun seasoning (to taste), 1/4 tsp. salt, a pinch of pepper, and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until cream cheese melts, 1-2 minutes.

  4. 4

    Add the Pasta

    Add pasta, cooked sausage, and a pinch of salt to hot pot.

    Stir occasionally until sauce thickens and pasta is heated through, 3-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping pasta with remaining Parmesan. Bon appétit!
