Crockpot Jambalaya โ€“ Pastalaya

This recipe for jambalaya can be made with rice, or served over pasta to make it pastalaya. Easily made right in your crockpot. Made with chicken, sausage and can even add shrimp.

When it comes to jambalaya, this is just one way of making it. Every Cajun cook has their own special way of making it. I really love it this way.
