You’ll love this flavorful shrimp and sausage pasta! An Italian one pot pasta that comes together in under 30 minutes!

shrimp and sausage pasta

What’s more comforting and cozy than a big pile of pasta swimming in a flavorful sauce!? For us, pasta almost always comes to mind when we’re looking for comfort food. SO that being said I recently bought an electric pasta maker!

I feel like I still need to work out the kinks with the machine, but having homemade, fresh pasta has been so nice! Plus the machine is fun for the kids to watch and get excited about as it churns out the pasta.

And so, bring on all the noodle dishes! Or “noonies” as Hattie would say. This shrimp and sausage pasta is made in only one pot, which makes it perfect for an easy weeknight dinner.

How do you make this one pot pasta dish?

This dish is super simple! I like to cook it in my cast iron skillet but you can use a non-stick skillet or your favorite Dutch oven.

Gather all of your ingredients together before you begin. I always like measuring everything out before I start! Not only do you get to feel like you’re on a cooking show with everything all ready to go, it makes your life much, much easier.

Start this dish by cooking the onion and sundried tomato together until the onion becomes translucent. Add the sliced sausage and garlic and allow it to cook for a few minutes to crisp up on one side, about 4-5 minutes.

Next, add in almost all of the remaining ingredients:

  • dry pasta (I like to use fettuccine or linguine)
  • fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • chicken (or veggie) stock
  • tomato paste
  • Italian seasoning

Be sure that the noodles are as submerged in the cooking liquid as possible, and cover the pan, with the heat turned down to low-medium.

Cook until the noodles are al-dente, about 10 minutes. Give everything a stir every few minutes to ensure things don’t stick to the bottom of the dish, and add additional liquid if things look like they’re drying up too much.

Once the noodles are done cooking, add in the shrimp and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until pink, giving everything a good stir.

The last step is to add 1/2 cup cream! Stir it in and cook for an additional 1 minute, then remove the pan from heat and serve!

Can you make this shrimp and sausage pasta with chickapea pasta?

Yes! I’ve made this dish with chickapea pasta as well as rice noodles. Just keep in mind the cooking time for the noodles will vary depending on what you use. You can also make this dish with gluten-free noodles to keep things gluten-free friendly!

Can this recipe be made dairy-free?

I’ve made this dinner a couple of times using coconut cream instead of regular heavy cream. Doing so would turn this into a dairy-free dinner!

Do I have to use Italian seasoning?

I highly recommend using Italian seasoning, as it goes so well with the sundried tomatoes and fire-roasted tomatoes. You can find Italian seasoning in every grocery store, or you could also make your own!

If you aren’t a fan, I would try a seasoning that you know you enjoy, such as Cajun spice or creole seasoning for a little extra heat!

Since things are cooling down everywhere, we’re going to need all of the comfort foods. I hope you enjoy this one and make it again and again!

You’ll love this flavorful shrimp and sausage pasta! An Italian one pot pasta that comes together in under 30 minutes!


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup sundried tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 coil kolbassa (or similar) sausage (200g)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken (or veggie) stock, plus more as needed
  • 1 can (398mL) fire-roasted tomatoes, with juices
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 3 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 250g (10oz) fettuccine or other dry pasta
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  1. Add the olive oil into a deep skillet over medium-high heat and allow it to heat up for a few minutes, before adding the diced onion and sundried tomatoes. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until the onion becomes soft and translucent. Add the sliced sausage and garlic and cook for a few more minutes or until the sausage begins to crisp up on one side, about 4-5 minutes. 
  2. Add in the tomato paste, stock, fire-roasted tomatoes, paprika and Italian seasoning and give everything a good stir. Place the noodles into the dish and make sure they’re as submerged as possible into the liquid. Bring everything to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and place a lid on the pan, cooking for about 10 minutes or until the pasta is al dente. Stir the pasta every few minutes to ensure the ingredients don’t get stuck to the bottom, and add a bit more cooking liquid if things are looking too dry.
  3. Once the pasta is done cooking, remove the lid and add in the shrimp, stirring to combine. Cook until the shrimp has turned pink, about 2-3 minutes. Pour in the heavy cream and give it all a stir again, cooking for an additional 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Remove the pan from heat and serve.

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container (once cooled) in the fridge for 2-3 days. 


*To keep this dish dairy-free, use coconut cream in place of the heavy cream.
