Bow Tie Cajun Pasta


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into thin strips
  • 2 teaspoons cajun seasoning
  • 1 tbl. margarine
  • 8 slices each green and sweet red pepper
  • 4 large fresh mushrooms sliced
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1 tb. cornstarch
  • 2 cups half and half, divided
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 oz.s bow tie pasta, cooked and drained
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh parsley


Place chicken and cajun seasoning in a resealable plastic bag; toss or shake to coat. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, saute chicken in margarine until almost tender, about 5-7 minutes. Add peppers, mushrooms and onion, cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat. Mix cornstarch with a little half and half, and add along with remainder of half and half and seasonings; heat through. Add cooked pasta and toss; heat through. Transfer to serving dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Garnish with chopped red pepper and snipped fresh parsley. NOTE: The fat content has been reduced by 1/2 from the original by cutting the margarine in half and using half and half instead of heavy cream.

Omigosh this sounds super flavorful and with all of those colorful veggies, I'm guessing it looks as yummy as it sounds. I appreciate the tip on cutting the fat but I kinda agree with Edmund on this one... sometimes butter is a good thing. I'm not sure if I'd go the half and half you think milk would be ok to use instead?

My wife and I both love Cajun food, and this sounds like a good recipe to try out. I'm not that concerned with restricting my fat intake, so I think I'd like to try making this with butter rather than margarine. The half-and-half instead of heavy cream is a substitution I can easily live with.
