I’ve mentioned before that almost any pasta meal is a family favorite at our house. I have a difficult time making enough of this Cajun Chicken Pasta to keep everyone happy. The girls even gobble it up as leftovers! It’s one of my favorites, not just for how great it tastes, but because it goes together quickly in the crock pot. I originally found this recipe in one of Sandra Lee’s Semi-Homemade cookbooks and then adapted it for our tastes.
Cajun Chicken Pasta
1 lb boneless, skinlesss chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces.
16 oz jar Alfredo pasta sauce
14.5 oz can petite diced tomatoes, drained
1 tsp cajun seasoning
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper, optional
1 lb bowtie pasta
In crockpot, stir all ingredients, except pasta, until combined. Cook on low 3-4 hours. Cook pasta as directed on package. Serve sauce over pasta.
To increase the spiciness of this dish, you can add a small can of chopped green chiles and/or increase the amount of cajun seasoning.
