If you're needing to have a quick easy Cajun pasta ready for your family to enjoy during the football game, the Down Home Meats Pastalaya is perfect. I like to add some spicy chorizo to give it an extra spice factor. You can stick with the original Down Home Meats sausage or you can go HOT! I LOVE spicy, my boyfriend gets heartburn. So if he's going to be around I leave out the chorizo and use the regular sausage instead of Hot.
