This zesty Cajun-style pasta is full of lean chicken, peppers and onions. Serve with sautéed green beans.

"This is a great recipe. The flavor is very fresh and the cajun seasoning makes it just a lil spicy! I doubled -everything- except the chicken since a box of pasta is usually 14-16 oz. I used bowtie pasta which made it look a little bit...

Very tasty!

This was really good. I used part chicken breast and part chicken sausage. Also used fat-free sour cream and added some crushed red pepper to up the heat. Served with garlic bread and steamed kale. Really good, super easy (practically a one-pot meal) and got rave reviews from the roommates! Would definitely make this again.

It's a keeper!

This was a good recipe. We added mushrooms, red pepper instead of green, and a pablano pepper to add more veggie content. We also used linguine instead of the cork screw pasta. The extra veggies really made this dish! I highly recommend adding them. I'd also recommend adding a bit of salt to the chicken. Overall good dish!

it was quite bland. the

it was quite bland. the crushed tomatoes were too over-powering.
i guess a stronger cajun blend would have helped...

Loved it!

Made this for the first time tonight. The name reminded me of my husband's fav dish at a well-known restaurant chain. I had printed it out awhile ago and just came across it today and was excited to try it. I loved it. I thought the flavors worked well together and I'm all about sneaking in some veggies undetected. Next time though, I will cut back on the cajun spice a little, since the kids complained it was too spicy. And I'll throw the green peppers in closer to the time of when the onions are cooking with the garlic, so the green peppers get softer too. Other than that it was delicious! Hopefully hubby will like it when he gets home from work!

"healthified" a fav restaurant recipe
Just so-so

Tried this recipe tonight and found it rather bland. I must agree with another post, just another pasta with tomato sauce dish.

Simple and Delicious

This was fantastic. My husband said this was not only a keeper but also a "10." I did a couple of things differently. I used Andouille Sausage instead of the chicken, I used fire roasted crushed tomatoes, I left out the bacon (because of the Andouille) and I diced the green bell pepper and onion.
