Delicious! I used 1c plain full fat yogurt & 1c half & half because I found out too late that I was out of cream! Grr. It worked wonderfully! Be careful using both cajun seasoning & salt - my seasoning mix has salt in it & if I had used both, it would be too salty. Plus I used chicken broth (has salt) and the parm has salt. So I didn't add salt. ;) We loved this & will definitely make it again. Made for ZWT9 for Mike & the Appliance Killers!
Cant go wrong with this recipe, excellent, we loved it, could have this every night! I used linguini as per my husbands preference, but confess that I think a short pasta, penne or similar, would be a better choice. You could add shrimp or bacon or ... lots of stuff -- but it was great as was! Thank you, made for I Recommend tag game.
Love this recipe! I had family over and served this...everyone LOVED it! I used Bowtie pasta and added shrimp at the end. We all like our food spicy, so I added some cayenne pepper, just to heat it up a little! Served with a salad and bread, perfect, quick and easy meal! And leftovers taste just as good!!! *takes a bite*
Quick and easy, and quite tasty! I thought the smoked paprika was a nice addition to the sauce. I used mini bow tie pasta, and added shrimp. Tagged for Best of 2013 on 01/23, due 02/06/14.
Yum! I made this as directed and loved it. As others have mentioned, I can see lots of things to add to this. Chicken, andouille, mushrooms and any other kind of veggie comes to mind. It was yummy as is but I think I'm going to try different variations each time I make it again. Thanks Mikekey for a nice winner. Made for your win in the football pool. Congrats again!
Yummy pasta, loved the little zing you get from the Cajun seasoning!! I was worried that it would be too much of a tomato flavor, it really wasn't, but it looked like it was a tomato based recipe. I also always worry that it maybe too spicy for me, but, again, it worked for my tastes/heat. This was a new awesome experience for me to enjoy the taste of the South/New Orleans, what awesome foods I have been missing!!! I used Emeril's Essence for the seasoning and cut the recipe back to one serving(using mini penne pasta) for DH and I, which worked out to be more then enough for us. But we also had grilled garlic bread, yummy Cuban marinated grilled chicken and a salad. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!! Made for your win in the football pool, congrats!!!
Great combo of flavors. Kudo's to Elmo for mentioning the salt ratio, she's right on and I'm glad that I didn't add any. That said this was a marvelous way to say so long the the Cajun region od ZWT 9. Mike, you have many excellent recipes and I always enjoy them, this was no exception. The creamy spice sauce is tops and a very welcome change from the usual. It really perks up the pasta (I used a wide linguini). Thanks for another winner. :D
This was really really great! I loved the diff take on a cream sauce. The only change I made was to mix in some veggies at the end for a more complete meal.
I made this as written with the addition of salmon, diced tomatoes, and zucchini to turn it into a one pot meal. My husband and I both enjoyed it very much but the flavor of the sauce sort of overpowered the salmon, which I wasn't expecting. I'll have to try it again sometime plain, but even with the salmon, it'll be in our rotation now. Thanks!
