Excellent recipe. I added some heavy cream and fresh grated Parmesan Reggiano.

Wow!! This is awesome! Love the flavor. I did up the cajun seasoning to 2Tbls, and used a can of drained diced tomatoes instead of fresh, and red onion. The juice is great for dipping a hot piece of bread. This is restaurant quality. Thanks for sharing.
