Louisiana Chicken Pasta Recipe

 

This Louisiana Chicken Pasta Recipe was listed as a knock off recipe for Cheese Cake Factory, but after researching it a little bit it looked to me like there were a lot of differences. We don’t have Cheese Cake Factory restaurants in this area so I don’t know what their version of this recipe would taste like.

This recipe looked so good I thought I would give it a try. Regardless this Louisiana Chicken Pasta Recipe is an excellent dish. This is a simple recipe that cooks quickly so most of the time is taken up prepping the meat and vegetables. It’s a little bit on the spicy side but you can heat it up or cool it down a little bit by adjusting the cayenne pepper to taste.

If you like Cajun cuisine give this Louisiana Chicken Pasta Recipe a try, it’s delicious. Enjoy Adapted from Annie’s Eats
