I used to work at Bahama Breeze and came home one night to try and replicate their Jerk Chicken Pasta as close as possible, and this is the closest I've gotten, but it tastes JUST like it!

This was so good and so close to the dish at Bahama Breeze. The only changes I made were to use bow tie pasta, heavy cream, and left the cayenne out altogether and just left everyone add it to their own serving so even those that are "spice challenged" could enjoy it.
