Cajun Pork Recipe

Tina Gantner of Matthews, Missouri writes, “It took me a few tries to perfect this recipe, but now it's a favorite in our household. More Cajun seasoning can be added, but it tends to make the dish too hot for children. Chicken breast can be substituted for the pork tenderloin and rice can be used instead of the noodles."
