Used Penne pasta instead. Excellent. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

This was a very good recipe. I used additional cajun seasoning, because I like my food spicy. I did not add cornstarch, as the pasta thickened the sauce when mixed together. I will definately make this again.

This is an excellent meal! I substituted milk and a bit of cornstarch dissolved to thicken it.Wonderful!
