I made this tonight for dinner. I also added diced red peppers like PSU Lioness and some chopped onions. I didn't have fettucine so I used bow-tie pasta instead which did a good job of holding the sauce. For those who are sensitive to hot spices just use 1 teaspoon of Cajun spice instead of two. I served this with French bread. Very delicious.

Wow! Delicious! I agree that this is not for the faint of heart because of the spices, but I expected it when I saw "Bourbon Street" in the title. The only think I changed is that I used penne pasta instead of fettucine and I diced some red peppers and added them to get some veggies in there. I thought it was fabulous. I will be making it again.

Hi I am a new mom. I have a 10 week old Daughter named Annabelle who is the love of my life right after my husband Darin who is in the USAF. I have no formal training but I was a cook at the officer's club on base for over a year and I learned a lot and loved it. My favorite cookbook is the joy of cooking. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
