Cajun Chicken Pasta


I may have a bit of a problem with making Cajun chicken pastas. It is reminiscent to my past Spaghetti Carbonara obsession.  As soon as I saw this recipe on All Recipes, I knew I had to make it.  I adore mushrooms, but I am the only one in the family who does.  So while we ate dinner, both C and Miss F piled my plate with their excess mushrooms.  We used fresh vegetables from Froberg Farm after a big afternoon of strawberry picking.  Miss F was a huge help in making  this dish, she is becoming much more confident working with things on the stove top, it's all quite exciting.
Cajun Chicken Pasta

16 ounces Penne pasta
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1” cubes
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons butter
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
4 fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 ½ cups heavy cream
½ teaspoon dried basil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Prepare the pasta per package directions, drain and set aside. Toss the chicken with the Cajun seasoning. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the chicken and sauté until cooked through, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the bell peppers and mushrooms, cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Add the cream, basil, salt, garlic and pepper, bring to a simmer and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 2 minutes more. Stir in the parmesan cheese and drained pasta, serve.
