Cajun Chicken Pasta

I love trying new recipes every now & then. However, long recipes are quite intimidating. I am not a huge pasta lover, but this one just caught my attention in the paper a few weeks ago. I decided to give it a try & we are all glad that I did!

Cajun Chicken Pasta

4 oz. Pasta, cooked

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked. (We were in a hurry, so I pulled the Tyson already cooked chicken breasts from the freezer. They added a great smokey flavor.) Slice into thin strips or dice into bite size pieces.

Combine the chicken & pasta.

Add 2 Tbsp. Butter & 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream. Mix well.

Add the following seasonings:

2 tsp. cajun seasonings

1/2 tsp. dried basil

1/2 tsp. lemon pepper

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

1/8 tsp. ground black pepper

1 green bell pepper finely chopped

1 red bell pepper finely chopped

green onions finely chopped

4 fresh mushrooms, diced

Coat the chicken & pasta well.

Reduce heat.

Stir in 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream or half & half

Top with 2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese.
