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

I followed the instructions (with the addition of an extra clove of garlic or two and a bit extra bacon), and it tasted like pasta with tomato sauce -- nothing special, in the least. The flavors from the cajun seasoning, the peppers, garlic, and onion just blended in with the tomatoes, and the sour cream didn't do much of anything.

A pretty solid 'eh'.


Made this the other night and had friends over for dinner. They LOVED it, as did I. I used minced garlic instead and went a little heavy as the previous poster mentioned. The only thing I'd do differently next time is cook the bacon to more of a crisp before sauteeing it, so there was a slight crunch to the bacon once it was part of the cream sauce. Overall, an awesome dish!


I loved it! I tried making it last night. I should have followed the instructions closely though. I think I may have put a pinch or two more of pepper than I should; it is a little spicy but I still enjoyed it. Also instead of 3 cloves of garlic, I added 5. The extra garlic was a good idea. Definitely a meal I'll make again.
