Cajun Chicken Pasta {w/ recipes}

happy friday! you've made it. now go out and celebrate. or stay in and make this delicious cajun pasta.


Steven made this dinner the other night. If you've never tried Cajun pasta - it's a fun one. Our friend Zac introduced us to the concept a few years ago. Zac is a fun character- a Texan, who calls his sweet wife " darlin' " and gets louder when he's excited about something. His recipe is very good, but when we were making this dinner the other night we didn't have everything we needed, so we decided to improvise.

Steven found a recipe online and we adapted it to our own tastes and what happened to be in our pantry. I had some spicy red peppers on hand from my neighbor's garden and some fresh tomatoes from mine.
