  • 2 teaspoons Old Bay or Cajun seasoning
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and bell peppers and season with salt and pepper. Next, add the garlic then stir in andouille sausage, garlic, and tomato paste and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more.
