Serve up a spicy dinner for two with this hot and creamy linguini tossed with an eye-opening blend of chicken strips sauteed with Cajun seasoning, colorful bell peppers, mushrooms and onions. Cream, basil, lemon pepper and garlic powder finish the sauce.
"Great Recipe! i made my own changes but could have never done it without this recipe. Here is what I changed (family loved it!!) ... i needed to make more so i doubled the recipe and i used 2 cups of heavy cream and 1 cup of regular milk.... I used shrimp instead of chicken adding the shrimp after sauté of vegetables. I added a few caps of liquid crab to the water when boiling the noodles. After i mixed the noodles and the sauce together i added a 3oz can of parmesan cheese and mixed well. This was awesome! Crab boil gives it that cajun kick! "- Barbie0206

mom2paige 3 weeks agoSauce was not thick enough for me. Added a little cornstarch to thicken. Also, served over rice instead. It was good.
Corwin26 1 month agoWe were not fans of the. It did not have enough sauce and was not tasting very good. More seasoning and tweaking needed!

MauraSpeckt 1 month agoEasy to make, but my kids and hubby were not big fans of it. The adults here and kids alike say 'bland', and personally I think the lemon pepper just did not work with the other the flavoring. Would not make again.

hammettfreak1 1 month agoSo good. Quick and easy. I added a small head of broccoli to it as well, and used red and yellow bells for color.
vycraven 2 months agoSounds amazing.....just hope the cajun seasoning is legit!
VeeW 2 months agoWhat mushrooms? ! ? Got half way through the recipe and it suddenly said add mushrooms. These were not in the ingredients, so it had to go without. Still delicious.

Aimeelady 3 months agoIts an OK recipe but not really as flavorsome as it coulda been. My friends and me like lotsa flavor in food and I needed to raise the amount of seasoning by a lot to make it pass. What I am looking for is like what they have at the cheesecake factory and tgif. I can see a few differet recipes posted so will keep tryin.
