Cajun Chicken Pasta Bake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min.
Makes2 casseroles (6 servings each)
I went by the recipe except I used spiral pasta, cooked and deboned a whole chicken, and added cayenne pepper to the other seasonings. I put it all in a Paula Dean stone casserole pan. Didn’t have tin foil so just baked it without it next time I will do the same but add more chicken and shrimp ?? like someone else said. Yummo!!!!
My daughter really liked this, but I thought it was missing something. I added some red pepper flakes and grated Parmesan cheese to my leftovers. Not sure if that is what it needed, but it helped.
Biggest critic...my husband...has been going on and on about it. I will tell you...he's been angry ever since he heard I was making a CASSEROLE! Now that he's tried it...he's telling me that I should make this again. :) One kid liked it...one kid didn't. This is not a casserole family so...you know. I made this exactly like the recipe but had to leave out the red peppers as they somehow disappeared! Wouldn't make any changes!
Love how easy this is to prepare with the added bonus of ending up with two meals! I prepared it exactly as per instructions and everyone thought it was delicious. It's a keeper.

We are still enjoying this dish over and over and over again! So easy to make.
I tripled this recipe and froze it when I was expecting my first child. I'll admit, the flavor combination was a little different, and I wasn't 100% sure about it when I first made it. But it really grew on me - it's a favorite now, and I find myself cooking extra chicken when I make other meals just so that I can have leftover chicken to use in this recipe. I love it!! I did follow the advice of other reviewers and I slightly reduced the amount of noodles I used and I've had no problems with the dish being dry. For some reason I can't click on the "stars" to rate the dish, but I would give it 5 stars!
I have made this many times and my husband keeps asking for me. It is so easy to make and is very delicious!
