Cajun Chicken Pasta
4 ounces pasta (your choice)
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, sliced into thin strips
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons butter
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green onion, minced
1 jar of alfredo sauce (I cheated. I love Ragu alfredo sauce)
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1.Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.
2.Meanwhile, place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl, and toss to coat.
3.In a large skillet over medium heat, saute chicken in butter until no longer pink and juices run clear, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add green and red bell peppers, and green onions; cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat. Season the sauce with basil, salt, garlic powder and ground black pepper, and heat through.
4.In a large bowl, toss linguini with sauce. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
