Mexican Pasta with Shrimp and Sausage

This is a recipe I created. I love to cook and try new things. Once I tried Chorizo sausage, I knew I had to create a recipe that incorporated the sausage and my other favorite food group – shrimp. My family loves shrimp and sausage. This makes a tasty dish. Serve it with a salad and bread. It is great!

Servings 4

1 pound uncooked chorizo sausage links.
1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp
1 large handful cilantro
4 cloves garlic - minced
1 cup white wine
1 1/2 cup chicken stock - or broth
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
1 lb linguini
2 tsp pepper divided
1 tsp salt divided
juice and zest of one lime
1/2 cup olive plus 1 tbsp

Slice sausage and cook in a large skillet with 1 tbsp olive oil until cooked through. Drain well both skillet and sausage. While sausage is cooking marinate shrimp in olive oil lime juice and zest, cajun seasoning, 1/2 salt and pepper. Cook pasta per package directions. While pasta is cooking saute garlic in the same skillet as sausage; add shrimp and cook until pink; deglaze pan with white wine. Add sausage, chicken stock, cumin, rest of salt and pepper, and cook for 5 minutes. Add drained pasta, cilantro, and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
