Cajun mac and cheese

I combined a yummy cajun chicken alfredo recipe with my favorite way to cook mac and cheese. This made more than four servings. I made my own Cajun Seasoning from a recipe on All Recipes, but it was a little heavy on the salt. I used 2 oz cheddar, 2 oz fontina, and 1 oz parmesan.

  • 6 0z pasta (I used a fun looking orichette)
  • 1 link andouille sausage, uncooked, casings removed
  • 1 cup sun dried tomatoes
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 2 chicken thighs, cooked and chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup milk/cream mixed
  • 5 oz cheese, plus a little for on top
  • Cajun seasoning

Make the cheese sauce after cooking and crumbling the sausage in the pot. Check the seasoning and get a good consistency, then stir in sausage, chicken, sun dried tomatoes, green onions, and cajun seasoning, and pasta. Sprinkle cheese and/or buttered topping, then place under broiler for 2 ish minutes.
