This is an exceedingly yummy, decadent pasta dish with chicken, vegetables, and lots and lots of scrumptious carbs. It’s a cinch to throw together, and if you don’t have prepared Cajun spice in your cabinet, you can just throw a few spices together to make your own combination. Different Cajun spice mixtures use different combinations of ingredients, but if you stick to basics like cayenne pepper (important!), paprika, white pepper (plenty, to help the spice factor), and garlic or onion powder, you’re doing just fine. And you can add Cajun extras to this dish—things like Andouille sausage, crawfish, or shrimp. Play with it…have fun!
Just remember: part of the deliciousness of this pasta dish is the spicy kick. So don’t wimp out on me, baby.
Here’s how you make it.
