      Every time I go to The Cheesecake Factory I say I am going to try something new, but, every time I get this. I luv, luv luv it!!!! This recipe wasn't bad, but, I did have to tweak it a bit. I could not find spinach linguini so used all regular. It also was kind of bland so I doubled the Cajun seasoning and the cayenne. I also added some more butter so there was more juice. Other than that it was great. I will make this again, but, I still think if I go to The Cheesecake Factory I will order it again lol.

      I have made this 3 times now, super good each time and even better for left overs the next day. I did use a short cut and bought and used Cajun seasoning. DELISH!!

      It was good, and perhaps I will repeat. I even added Andouille sausage and okra for authenticity but somehow, this still needed SOMEthing to flavor it other than heat and salt. If anyone comes up with an idea PLEASE post.
