Amazing. 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.

My 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."

Great 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.

Made 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!

Easy to make, and tasty! I added about 1 cup sliced mushrooms. Will definitely make again!

Sauce was not thick enough for me. Added a little cornstarch to thicken. Also, served over rice instead. It was good.

We were not fans of the. It did not have enough sauce and was not tasting very good. More seasoning and tweaking needed!

Easy 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.

Followed instructions and it turned out great

So good. Quick and easy. I added a small head of broccoli to it as well, and used red and yellow bells for color.

Sounds amazing.....just hope the cajun seasoning is legit!

What 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.

It's okay - probably wouldn't make again.

Its 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.

Loved this recipe. Added cream cheese and crushed red pepper flakes as others said in their review. Will definitely make this again.

Peppers are a little overpowering and sauce a little thin. A few modifications and it will be perfect.
