"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

audreypierce 1 month agoAmazing. I do add a little cornstarch, a little cream cheese, some red pepper flakes, and a little shredded cheese. Honestly though, it is still great without it, I just like to make it a little bit my own. :) My husband and I have this once a month.
pollylj 1 month agoMy husband and friends love this. That being said I doubled the cajun spices as we like it spicy. I used less salt and, while the mushrooms are missing from ungredient list, its no bug deal. Its just as good w/o mushrooms. As with any recipe, I add and change things by 'playing'with it, makes it more 'my own.'
lawn2000 1 month agoGreat recipe. I substituted 1/3 of the heavy cream for cream cheese and added some corn starch to thicken. I also doubled the Cajun spice as others suggested and it came out with a great flavor. I might reduce the salt next time as I think there was enough in the Cajun spice I used. I also added cayenne pepper so it was very spicy which suited our tastes. Very easy and fast for after work.
Lmaxwell328 1 month agoMade this tonight and my hubby and I loved it, will definitely make it again. I used more Cajun seasoning than it said and it was so good. I love the Cajun pasta at BJ's Brewhouse and this was similar and just as good!

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

MauraSpeckt 3 months 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 4 months 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 4 months agoSounds amazing.....just hope the cajun seasoning is legit!
VeeW 5 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.
