Melt butter in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add sausage, onion, red pepper, and Cajun seasoning; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until vegetables have softened and sausage is blistered. Stir in chicken broth, tomatoes, and macaroni. Cover, bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cook 10 to 12 minutes or until pasta is al dente.
The best part about this creamy Cajun-inspired pasta is that it comes together in just one pot! Even better: You can control the spice level by adding as much (or as little) Cajun seasoning as you like.
