Cajun Pasta gives you a fulfilling dinner with a side of spicy kick. Combining chicken, shrimp, and more makes this a delectable dish.
We went out to eat one weekend to one of our favorite restaurants and I tasted the most delectable pasta, and I knew that I would have to try and remake it to serve up this Valentine’s Day! While I have been on a dessert kick, trying to figure out the best sweets to send with my children to school for their Valentine’s party, I have been trying out different dinner dishes trying to figure out something perfect to serve my honey and kids! The pasta dish that I tried, I knew it would be perfect and I could put a few twists on the dish to make it perfect for my family.
My Cajun Pasta is made with two of my favorite proteins; chicken and shrimp! What says love more than shrimp, and I right?! Along with a few other additions, my family gave this recipe two thumbs up. While this dish is a little on the spicy side, you can add as little or as much cajun seasoning to your chicken, depending on how spicy you truly want it. Without further ado, my Cajun Pasta
