People who love spicy Cajun dishes will quickly fall in love with this easy recipe for a delicious Jambalaya Pasta. I adapted the Cheesecake factory a bit to be less spicy and hope that you will enjoy my version.

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp salt

1/3 spicy paprika

1/2 cup heavy cream

6 oz fettucini or spaghetti noodles

2 tbsp olive oil

1 sliced red bell pepper

1 sliced yellow bell pepper

1 medium red onion, sliced

fresh parsley for garnish


1. Toss together the Cajun seasoning blend by combining the pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic powder and breadcrumbs in a small bowl. 

2. Take half of the seasoning blend and put it into another bowl.

3. Cut the chicken breast into bite-size pieces

9. Add the shrimp to the same pan and cook for another 2 minutes.

10. Take chicken and shrimp out of the pan and set aside. (Don't throw out the oil)

12. Add heavy cream and let the cream cook down, Stir often so the cream won't stick to the bottom of the pan. 

13. Plate by spooning the jambalaya over the pasta and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
