We loved this dish. It has great flavor and is easy to make.
Very delicious! I used half & half in place heavy cream and added a dab of cream cheese.
Not the best pasta I've ever had, but definately the BEST PASTA I'VE EVER MADE!!! Very yummy!
This is one of our family favorites! Changes I made for us - omitted the peppers and added 1-2 Tablespoons of Crushed Red Pepper makes it a spicy creamy - and of course I make a much larger serving for leftovers!
I loved it...made a couple of changes..Stir fried chicken until done.....used freah chopped basil, 1 teaspoon lemon juice instead of lemon pepper(did not have any on hand), used garlic salt for the garlic powder and salt....I used Tony Chachere for the Cajun seasoning..will make again...delicious!
