Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Recipe

Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 1 large sweet onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 4 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 jar (15 ounces) Alfredo sauce
  • 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • 1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion and peppers in oil until tender. Add the chicken, Cajun seasoning and garlic; heat through. Transfer to a large bowl. Drain fettuccine; add to chicken mixture. Stir in Alfredo and spaghetti sauces.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with cheeses. Cover and bake at 375° for 15 minutes. Uncover; bake 10-15 minutes longer or until golden brown. Yield: 8 servings.

"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."

"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!"

"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 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!"
