Select a large frying pan that has a lid - preferably glass so you can monitor the cooking food.
Melt butter in frying pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and stir to coat with butter. Fry, stirring frequently to ensure even browning. As the edges turn crisp and golden add onions and sausage. Fry for an additional minute to heat sausage.
Add noodles, water, cream, pepper, garlic and Cajun seasoning. Stir to combine. Cover the pan and bring to a boil. After the pasta mixture comes to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cover. Check the pasta after 9 minutes. If it is not tender, cook an additional 1-3 minutes.
When pasta is tender, remove from heat and stir in cheese and parsley. Taste for salt and pepper. Add additional Cajun seasoning for more spice.
Serve immediately with steamed broccoli, crusty bread and additional Parmesan cheese.
