Jambalaya Fettuccine Recipe

© 2007 Peggy Trowbridge Filippone
Classic jambalaya ingredients, chicken, shrimp and sausage, come together over fettuccine pasta. This version is only mildly spicy. If you like it hot, increase the cayenne pepper or add hot sauce to taste. Feel free to substitute rice for the pasta.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 6 to 8 servings


  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 3/4 pound), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 pound fettuccine pasta
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound smoked kielbasa sausage, sliced 1-inch thick, then each slice cut into fourths
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1 small bell pepper, sliced into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 small white onion, sliced into 1/4-inch strips
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 1/4 cup white wine


Whisk together the salt, cayenne, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder.

Sprinkle chicken cubes with 1/3 of the seasoning mix and toss to coat. In a separate bowl, do the same with the shrimp using another 1/3 of the seasoning. Begin cooking the pasta.

Place a large, deep, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and swirl to coat the pan. Quickly sear chicken on two sides, about 3 minutes, then add shrimp and brown each side 30 seconds. Remove to a bowl.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to the pan and toss in the kielbasa sausage, tomatoes, bell pepper, and onion. Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 of the spice blend and cook over high heat until vegetables are browned and softened. Add half of the chicken stock and continue cooking over high heat until most of the stock has evaporated.

Add garlic and wine, stirring for 2 minutes. Add remaining chicken stock, along with the reserved chicken and shrimp. Stir, scraping up and browned bits from the bottom, and simmer another 3 minutes until slightly reduced.

Serve the jambalaya over the cooked fettuccine.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

love it., Member gringodemaio

I substituted chorizo for the kielbasa and increased the cayenne pepper a bit. It was delicious but much spicier than expected. I suspect that has more to do with the change in sausage than the extra CP. As an experiment the next day I mixed some of this with classico mushroom alfredo sauce and tossed with pasta. It works, though between the sauce and the sausage it was pretty fattening.
