Creamy and tastes indulgent. We looked up what was in Cajun seasoning instead of buying "Cajun seasoning." It's stuff we already have around!

This was good but in my opinion would be better with rotisserie chicken. I used whole wheat pasta to add a little more fiber. Sauce was tasty. I will make this again.

This dish was medicore at best. I followed the recipe (including using the cajun spices from this website) but thought it to be a little bland. The rest of the family did not think it was that great either. I probably won't make this again.

Wonderful everyday dish....my family really enjoyed it. I did double the recipe for the creamy sauce and added cloves of garlic that I chopped and added to the vegetable saute mixture. I also saved a bit of the pasta/shrimp water to keep the pasta from drying out after it was prepared. A wonderful

I loved it! Everyone else not so much. Just the right amount of kick. I might try angel hair pasta next time and use a smaller bell pepper.
