Step 1

Place a Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liner in the insert of a 6- to 8-quart slow cooker, press it as flat as possible against the bottom and sides, then fold the liner over the top.

Step 2

Add the sausage, tomatoes, celery, green peppers, onions and scallion whites. Whisk together the tomato paste, flour, garlic, cayenne and 1/2 cup water in a small bowl.

Step 3

Add the mixture to the slow cooker with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Toss to coat well.

Step 4

Add the bay leaf, cover and cook until the vegetables are

cooked through and the stew thickens, 5 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

Step 5

Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and black pepper over the shrimp.

Step 6

Submerge the shrimp in the broth in the slow cooker, cover and leave undisturbed until the shrimp turn pink and are cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the scallion greens and serve over rice.
