Low Carb Sausage and Shrimp Cajun Skillet

This is such a flavorful and family friendly recipe. My family absolutely loves this. Shrimp is a family favorite but it is a little on the expensive side. Adding all of these vegetables not only adds to the bulk of the recipe and makes this so healthy.

I usually prep this one ahead. I chop of most of the veggies and sausage. It makes dinner come together in about 15-20 minutes. No need for a drive thru on a busy night. I love providing food that my family really loves and saves us money.

Make this as spicy as your family likes. I add a little Cajun seasoning to the skillet and then those that like more heat can sprinkle more on their individual servings.  If you don’t eat shrimp or want to save a little money, buy two packages of sausage. If you are eating this in the trim healthy mama S setting, or low carb, check the carb count on your sausage package. And as always, add more or less spice/seasonings for your family’s tastes.
