Healthy eating doesn't mean that you simply need to skip out on flavor and this Cajun Asparagus and Sausage Skillet delivers the flavour . Loaded with plenty of veggies and attractive spice, this sausage skillet may be a quick and straightforward weeknight meal that you simply can make in about 40 minutes. Your family won’t even realize they're eating a healthy recipe once you serve them this Cajun flavor explosion.

Back when my husband and that i were dating we visited to New Orleans for an extended weekend. We had a tremendous time seeing the sites, visiting voodoo shops, and touring the cemeteries. But our absolute favorite thing to try to to there was eat. i feel we'd have had four or five meals each day with great care we could try as many restaurants as possible. If you're curious about going there my friend Lauren has some great city guides on where to travel and what to try to to you'll inspect here.


We are always trying to find ways to bring a touch little bit of that flavor home to Missouri and this skillet does just that. i do know that we don’t include any seafood during this asparagus sausage skillet, but we sleep in Missouri. So fresh, flavorful seafood isn’t exactly available on every corner . We make due with what we've and dream of the day we get to travel back to the Gulf Coast .

The idea for this recipe actually came from my sister (thanks Aub!). She’s a busy mom of the worlds cutest toddler and fully understands just how hard it's cook with kids around on a deadline . You wouldn’t think that a four year old would be that busy but between swim practice and dance and preschool events there's hardly any time for long, tedious recipes. this is often a fast attend meal that the child will eat and therefore the adults will actually enjoy.
