Pastalaya pronounced pasta-lie-a (like jambalaya) is a cross between a pasta dish and jambalaya (the Cajun sausage and rice dish). Is that confusing enough? No matter Pastalaya is delicious! My family devours it, even in its whole food incarnation with whole wheat penne pasta.
I have been making Red Beans and Rice since I got married 30+ years ago. It is delicious, economical, and all ages love it.
An adaptation of a Cajun classic!
Shrimp Etouffee has been a special occasion meal in our home forever. My husband requests it each year on his birthday and Father’s Day. I think this recipe originated from a Baton Rouge Junior League cookbook from the 1980’s.
