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!

Tried this recipe tonight and found it rather bland. I must agree with another post, just another pasta with tomato sauce dish.
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.
I'm a vegetarian so I cut out the meat but it was still super good. The flavors were really potent and zesty. And it was just the right amount of spicy! I will definitely be making this one again.
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 nicer in my opinion.
I also was running a little low on the sour cream, so I added 3 Tblsp. neufchatel cream cheese. It worked great!
I will definitely make this again. Myself and my husband --loved-- it!
