      I used about 1 tsp cajun seasoning, also had no green onions so I used a small red one and sliced that thinly. Had my son and his girlfriend with us to enjoy it and enjoy we did, very tasty. Thanks for posting. =)

      OMG!!!! This is SOOOO Good!! I used more Cajun seasoning and upped the spices a little. We like a little more flavor. Red and yellow or orange peppers make this a beautiful dish, as well. I omit the mushrooms as Dahling and I are not too crazy about them and the taste is still wonderful.This has quickly become a favorite at our house. It's really very quick and I make it in a large skillet so I have only the pasta pot and skillet for clean up. I serve it with a salad (dressed with a wonderful tangy dressing) and breadsticks or French bread. Yumm!!!!
