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.

If you want a short cut, just use Cajun or Creole seasoning. Also, for that more authenic flavor, be sure to add some andoille sausage that has been browned and rendered of fat. It puts it over the top and will make you think you might be in Nawlins.

Loved it! It is very time consuming and I think the prep work before you start cooking anything is key. I did notice that in this recipe there is salt listed in the ingredients but not in the steps I added it when I added the chicken stock. Thumbs up! :)

This recipe is fabulous! I added a farmer sausage, double the sauce and mixed it all together....then bake in the oven til heated through at 350 degrees with some marble cheese on top! Hubby asks for it at least once a week.....definitely a keeper!

This dish is delish! My daughter ordered it at the Cheesecake Factory and I tasted it there. I loved it. Found the recipe here and made it at home. Still loved it! I had leftovers and froze them. We opened the bag to have it for dinner one night and I added a cream sauce to it to change it up a bit... it was great with the cream sauce as well! Great, versatile dish!

I just finished trying this one out. Going to make it for my annual New Years Even dinner party. Good stuff. Very close to the original. This is a keeper for a special occasion. Not good for a week night meal.

This pasta was yummy and easy to make. I just bought the cajun spice mix from the grocery store to make this recipe simpler. I will be making this again!

This was a great, if time consuming, recipe! I was worried that cooking so much on high heat with my best Calphalon pan might not work, but that's the novice chef in me. :) In reality, it worked out great, with excellent flavor, but I did have to babysit the pan the entire time. While it was a delicious dish that my entire family enjoyed (includint my DS, who has a tendency to be picky), it would not be practical for weekday cooking. We'll keep it in the special occasions cookbook, though, as it really delivered on authenticity! Thanks!
