Spicy Cajun Pasta Like Tgi Fridays

Recipe by lazyme

I found this copycat recipe online in a group called Dear Chef Secrets. It's supposed to be pretty close to the one served at the restaurant.

I made this as described, other than mixing the chicken in with the sauce. This made a lovely coating sauce, with a tangy flavour that we very much enjoyed. Even my rather picky younger daughter enjoyed this dish, the cayenne pepper is just enough to please the palate without being ' burny '. Thank you lazyme, lovely recipe, quickly prepared for a good midweek dinner, dish, this recipe was made for My 3 Chefs 2012.
