    Easy and turned out so good. Can’t wait to make this again! I cut the chicken breast into strips and put them in the air fryer for 10 min, then on the pan.

    This is a pretty good starting point for a Cajun chicken pasta. My Cajun seasoning consisted of: salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, oregano, and cayenne. I cooked a couple pieces of bacon in a cast iron. Once finished, I removed it and chopped it up to be a topping on each plate. I then tossed the chicken in a bowl so it would get an even coat of seasoning. After it was done cooking in the same pan as the bacon was cooked in, I chopped up a little Anaheim pepper and sautéed it in with the chicken and tossed it up a bit so the seasoning really soaked into the peppers. Then I added the green onions, sun dried tomatoes and everything else. I reserved a couple tablespoons of the pasta water and added it to the pan for extra richness and creaminess. When everything was mixed up nice and good, I transferred the pasta into the pan and mixed everything up in the pan. I let it sit for a few mins on super low heat while I baked garlic bread. I plated the food, putting bacon bits, shaved parmigiana, and fresh parsley on top! It was delicious! (I forgot the bacon bits when I took this photo, but don’t worry, I put them on when I remembered)

    Amazing! I doubled the sauce recipe just bc I like my pasta to be saucy and I use alot of cajun seasoning just bc i love it so much, I also added grated parmesan cheese to the sauce, about 1/4c and I also added about a 1/4tsp cayenne pepper to add a little spice. Definitely one of my favorite meals!

    Creamy and delicious! Didn’t have sun dried tomatoes, but used a sun dried tomato paste and it worked. Used a bit of smoked paprika and we loved it! Also added a bit of fresh grated Parmesan for a final garnish. Will definitely make again.

    The family all enjoyed this dish. I doubled the recipe to accommodate my family and I slightly tweaked the recipe. I added sliced garlic and 1 thinly sliced green bell pepper. I stirred in some parsley. And I did add pasta water in along with the pasta at the end along with 1 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese. It was a good meal. Quick & easy too.

    It’s so good! It’s one of my kids favorite dishes. I use a sundried tomato pesto that’s amazing. Also, added a little spinach to make it a bit healthier.

    This is SOOOO good! I didn't really "measure" any of the spices, just kind of threw them in and eye balled it, and it came out fantastic! I added just a little bit of milk at the end to lighten up the sauce and added a bit more pepper and my husband LOVED it. Will definitely make this again!

    This is fantastic! I used fresh basil though and garnished with some as well! I also added mushrooms and shrimp! I think it was the best pasta dish that I've ever had!
