Ingredients

12 oz. Linguine Pasta
6 Boneless Chicken Breasts, cut into bite size pieces
6 tsp. Cajun Seasoning
1 1/2 Tbs. Butter
1 Medium Red bell Pepper, sliced
3/4 Cup Sliced Mushrooms
3 Green Onions, sliced
1/2 Cup Half and Half
3/4 tsp. Basil
3/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 Cup Romano Cheese, grated
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Tbs. Flour


Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.



In a large ziplock bag, add chicken and cajun seasoning; toss until coated.



In a large skillet, over medium heat, melt butter. Add chicken and cook for 5 - 7 minutes, until almost cooked through. Add red bell pepper, mushrooms, and green onions. Saute for about 3 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.



In a small bowl, toss 1/2 romano chees with flour until well blended. Reduce heat in skillet and add half and half, basil, garlic powder, and flour/romano cheese mixture. Heat to a very low simmer and allow sauce to thicken, stirring occasionally.



In large pasta bowl, add cooked pasta and chicken mixture. Toss together well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with remaining romano cheese.



MEDITERANIAN STYLE: Substitute cajun season with Italian seasoning and add sundried tomatoes.

Thanks for posting this recipe. I prepared this for my family and they loved it. I was going to take a picture but they ate it so fast that I didn't get a chance to. LOL
