I combined two pasta sauces and added Cajun seasoning for kick in this quick- mix casserole. Using frozen onions and peppers speeds things up even more. Or try adding mushrooms or frozen peas. —Rebecca Reece, Henderson, Nevada

"Very Good. I roasted bone-in chicken breasts to get the 2 cups cooked chicken."

"Awesome recipe! We really enjoyed the creamy tomato sauce with the "kick" of Cajun. I used whole what spaghetti instead. I also did not assemble it into a casserole; I served the delicious sauce over servings of pasta. Will definitely make this again."

"You had me at "Cajun." We love spicy, so this caught my eye right away. My husband and I loved the creaminess of the sauce paired with the Cajun spice. Winner, Winner."

"My husband loved it! and it was better than I thought since Cajun seasoning doesn't appeal to me."

"T. Hanna, I completely agree. What's the point in pinning it, if someone just decides to take over with another recipe?!? I can't comment on this recipe but here's the link that this page used to take us to.

I'm having it for dinner tonight!"

"I'm wondering what happened to the site this recipe used to take me too, B/C it was a blog with a fantastic homemade alfredo sauce (no disgusting canned bologna) and I want that recipe! Did you guys buy rights or something b/c this version and it's ingredient list is disappointing to say the least."

"This is a great recipe and easy, too. My husband likes spicy pasta dishes and he loved this one.

In addition to the other ingredients, I added some sliced hot and spicy Polish sausage to the mixture as well. I'll be making this one again!"

"Really good....even after I made a mistake and had it in the oven before I realized I hadn't added the Cajun seasoning! I'd just stuck it in, so pulled it out, scraped the cheese off the top as best I could, then dumped it all in a pot and added the seasoning. (The moral of this story is....don't walk around with a telephone glued to your ear, chatting with a friend, while trying to read a recipe and cook!) I actually put in more seasoning than it called for before I realized it was mostly salt, so I thought it would be ruined, but it wasn't! Yummy! Will make again!"
