1/2
cup thin bite-size strips green bell pepper
1/2
cup thin bite-size strips red bell pepper
1
small onion, cut into thin strips

1 1/2

  • 2 In same skillet, place uncooked pasta and seasoning mix (from Ultimate Hamburger Helper box), hot water, milk, thyme and pepper sauce. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
  • 3 Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in chicken, sausage and vegetables. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer about 8 minutes longer or until pasta and vegetables are tender. Remove from heat; stir in tomato herb sauce (from Ultimate Hamburger Helper box). Serve with additional pepper sauce, if desired.

Expert Tips

Andouille, a spicy smoked sausage, is often used in Cajun cooking. If you prefer a milder flavor, you can use kielbasa or any other smoked sausage for this recipe.

Don't care for sausage? Omit the sausage and double the chicken, or add 1 1/2 cups cooked shrimp instead.
