Tess and Lilli's Jambalaya

Tessa Pasquill


My sister and I developed this recipe for jambalaya by combining various recipes together. Our whole family really liked it even those who don't normally enjoy spicy food. Even my sisters friends at school enjoyed it when she took the little bit of what was left over!
