Cajun Chicken Pasta

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Oh Sherry

My husband made this for supper one night and I LOVED IT! I'm not sure where the recipe came from, it was his 'secret'. This is a recipe that could be played around with by adding shrimp, more seasoning, mushrooms, etc. Although, I liked it just the way it is.

This was very good and my son really liked it as well. I used shallots instead of green onion (that's all I had) and I cooked them with the chicken. I used about a tbsp of cajun seasoning on the chicken and added a little more before serving (we like our food spicy). I put the parmesan cheese in with the cream (I used half and half). It turned out great and it was very easy to make on a busy weeknight. I will be making this again. Thanks!
