This is probably the best pasta dish that I have ever made at home and HOW EASY it was! I did make some changes......I doubled the recipe, but only used 2 cups of heavy whipping cream (trying to lower calories), used 1 lb of fettuccini instead of linguine (I thought there would not be enough sauce, but it was fine) and 1/2 red pepper instead of sun-dried tomatoes (what I had on hand). I will use a whole red pepper next time. Thank you so much Lorac! 12/29/09 Update: I've made this numerous times and have followed the recipe exactly as written, but now replace the tomatoes with red, orange and yellow pepper.....one each in slices. Tastes and looks great!
Really good! Would be awesome with shrimp. I doubled the recipe and added 2 bell peppers and an onion, as well as some mushrooms. I used 2 different Cajun mixes I had, and they varied a lot as to the amount of salt in them. I didn't add any extra salt for that reason. The only reason I didn't give this recipe 5 stars is because the amount of whipping cream is out of control! I used half cream and half nonfat 1/2 and 1/2, which was good but probably not as thick as it could've been.
Quick, easy and tasty. Can't ask for too much more! Thanks for posting! :o)
Doubled the recipe and added red and green bell pepper strips and shitaki mushrooms and more cajun seasoning. Mmmmm Mmmmm good.
Excellent! I'm not really a pasta kind of guy, but was craving something that I don't make often. This fit the bill and then some! I did add mushrooms and red peppers as some had suggested. The red peppers were a great addition. I tripled the recipe and it turned out great. My wife even told me I needed to save this recipe! Thanks for sharing.
This is a BEAUTIFUL recipe. Have made it several times now, and it is always a hit. Everyone who has tried it, LOVES it. Will sometimes add a little less cream or a little flour to make it a little bit thicker, but the base flavours mean that i dont mind the minor adjustments because the taste is perfect!
I have made this three times this month already! It is super easy and we just love it. I stick to the recipe mostly but I do add some mushrooms and peppers because I love them in everything. Thanks for the great recipe.
WOW!!! This was so good!! I added a lot of cajun seasoning cause we like it spicy, but that's all it needed for me!
Not that this needs another 5 star,but we just had this for dinner. I did add fresh mushroom, yellow pepper,shrimp and canned roasted red peppers. Thanks for a great recipe.
