A great recipe my dad made for me. I had been craving it since, so today I made it at my mother-in-laws house and it was a huge hit there! A very tasty dish!

    Cook noodles
  2. Saute chicken until almost done, then add andouille sausage, onions, bell peppers, cajun seasoning, salt, pepper, and garlic. Cook for another 5-10 minutes or until bell peppers are soft. (warning: your kitchen will smell amazing!)
