Reviews for Cajun Chicken Fettuccine
"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."
"Delicious. Make again."
"I've made this twice now and we love it. It's so easy and totally delicious. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"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. http://comfortablydomestic.com/2011/03/05/cajun-chicken-alfredo/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!"
"Absolutely delicious! I will make this again and again."
"My family loves this recipe. It is delicious!!!"
"It's the real deal."
"Very good! A little spicy for the kids...but they still ate it all up. I will definitely make this again!"
"This is my absolute favorite pasta recipe! Creamy and full of flavor!"
"Delicious! I had about half a jar of Alfredo sauce on hand, and it turned out great."
"We love this recipe! We make it all the time. Makes great leftovers."
"My BF & I enjoyed this recipe very much. Had it for Mardi Gras with homemade French Bread. I felt it was a bit spicy, so will add a bit less Cajun Seasoning next time. Would do this again."
"This recipe was really easy to execute and was very flavorful! I was skeptical to use all 4 tsp. of Cajun seasoning because my husband does not like spicy food at all (but I love it!). I decided to follow the recipe exactly the first time trying it (substituting linguine) and my husband and I LOVED it! He didn't think it was spicy at all but also had wonderful flavor! It turns out really creamy and delicious, definitely worth all 5 stars!"
"This is by far the most delicious pasta recipe I have ever made! Since my husband and I love shrimp I added some and it was delicious! I'm sure it would also be great with out. I will definitely make this again!"
"Yummy, everyone enjoyed it. It was easy to make. I loved the flavor made by mixing the Alfredo, spaghetti sauce and Cajun seasonings. I liked the suggestion of adding mushrooms. They added a nice flavor with the peppers and onions. We will be making this again."
"This was really good, though I wish I had been more careful and read the ingredients in my cajun seasoning--I don't know if it's normal, but the one I bought had salt as the first ingredient--not any real spices! I used the amount called for, and it was way too salty for my taste. I added a generous amount of chili powder and red pepper flakes to help balance it out, but wish i had used either less cajun seasoning and more spices of my own or had bought better seasoning! I also added asparagus and mushrooms, which were both great additions for some more vegetables!"
"My whole family loved it!"
"This recipe was absolutely delicious! Although I have to admit, I love cajun flavored food. I did not make any changes to this recipe and I would definitely make this again."
"That`s was not bad but it has fast food taste. I would not like to make it again I can find here much better recipe with homemade taste."
"This was fantastic! Everyone loved it!!"
"The flavors are excellent simple to make.... Family loves it one of our top favorites."
"This was so very good."
"I didn't add as much "cajun" seasoning b/c I wanted my toddler to be able to eat it. Everyone in our family really enjoyed this and next time I think I will add fresh spinach."
"Very flavorful and zesty. I made this for a group of guests and several of them requested the recipe. Delicious!"
"I may be a little bias on this recipe because I love the cajun flavor. The only change I made was to use linguine because that is what I had on hand. This dish is nice and creamy. Will make again."
"This is a great dish. My husband loved it!"
"I make this at least once a month now. My family LOVES it! Though they seem to like it more not baked. Still it is amazing and I make it for all my friends now. Thank you!"
"This recipe is absolutely fabulous! It has a restaurant quality to it without the restaurant expense. It will definitely become a regular favorite for our family."
"This was really, REALLY good. I served it with sub rolls, sliced in half, slathered with Cajun butter and broiled in the oven. Everyone loved it. Thank you for a wonderful recipe."
"Great tasting dish! My family loved it!"
"This is one of my favorite go-to recipes: easy and sooo delicious!"
"Really, REALLY tasty dish. Just the right amount of "Ummmm, what is that?" Thank you Rebecca for a delightful recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out really good. Next time I might try it with a different type of pasta, or beef or pork, but I will keep the seasonings exactly as they are. Thanks again for a really great recipe."
"LOVE, LOVE this recipe. Especially the creamy texture. Often times, pasta recipes come out a little on the dry side but NOPE! not this one. It's really GREAT!"
"I have made it several times and shared the recipe with co-workers who also enjoyed it!!"
"you can really lower the fat content just by using less Alfredo sauce. we usually use no more than half a jar, and just make up for it with extra red sauce."
"This is the BEST!!!! My entire family loved it and it's so easy to make!"
"Love this DISH! Even my 6yr old son, and 4 yr old daughter enjoy it! Not to mention the families in our cooking Co-Op! Not too spicy for those concerned about that!"
