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."
