Pin It and Do It: Cajun Chicken Pasta

I use Pinterest to keep recipes the links, and all-important photos, of recipes I want to give a try. The other day we had this delicious Cajun Chicken Pasta.

Okay, so it was exactly like this. I used shrimp instead of the chicken and left out the onion and scallions, simpy because I forgot. I have to say, it was very good. And it’s a nice meal for us, because you cook the protein seperately from the vegetables and pull everything together in the end. So I can keep some of the shrimp, in this case, out of the sauce and serve everything apart for Amber. She had plain pasta, shrimp, and raw veggies, while David and I had the whole dish as intended. This is definitely something I ‘ll make again, especially in mid-summer, once we start getting lots of tomatoes and peppers from the garden. Tomorrow, we’re going shopping for plants, so I’m thinking about the list of veggies, herbs and flowers I need.

Thanks to Trish at Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity for hosting Pin It and Do It this month. This is my third completed pin for the challenge. If you’re on Pinterest, let me know; I’m Carol Evans.

      Not exactly. I only cook one meal, just combine it in two different ways. I really don’t mind. When I was a kid I was pretty picky too. She’ll grow out of it.

  1. Looks delicious! I’ve been seeing so many recipes from Skinny Taste lately (and have cooked a few of them) and they’ve all been great. Love the idea of substituting shrimp for chicken.
