For too long, gumbo and pasta have been separate dishes. This recipe brings the two tasty flavors together in a Cajun-inspired pasta jam-packed with chicken and shrimp plus the gumbo flavors and spices you love.


  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 12 oz. Market District Cajun-style andouille sausage
  • ⅓ cup Giant Eagle pure canola oil
  • ½ cup Giant Eagle all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Market District chicken stock
  • 1 cup Contadina tomatoes, Roma style crushed in tomato purée
  • 1 cup Bertolli Vineyard marinara with burgundy wine sauce
  • 12 oz. Nature's Basket extra-large peeled & deveined raw shrimp, thawed
  • 10 oz. Pictsweet cut okra
  • ¾ tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tsp. Tony Chachere's creole seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp. Giant Eagle savory Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 lb. San Giorgio rigatoni pasta


  Prep Time: 15 min. • Cook Time: 45 min.

Peel and dice the yellow onion, celery, and bell pepper into ½-inch dice. Peel and chop the garlic. Slice the andouille sausage ½-inch thick.

In a large, heavy-bottomed stock pot, heat canola oil and flour over medium heat. Stirring constantly, cook the flour and oil until it turns the color of peanut butter. Be careful, as it will be very hot. Add the onions, celery, and bell peppers and cook another 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook another minute. Add the chicken stock, crushed tomatoes, and marinara and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once it comes to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes. Add the andouille, shrimp, okra, salt, creole seasoning, and Worcestershire sauce. Cook until the shrimp are cooked through*.

While the gumbo is cooking, cook the rigatoni pasta according to package directions.

Drain the pasta and add to the gumbo, stir well and cook for 2 minutes to combine flavors.

*For food safety, cook shrimp until pink and opaque.
