Before I got home from work my intention was to make a Chicken Tortellini Bake. Then I got home only to find that I didn’t have the tortellini that I thought I had. I was in the mood for a creamy chicken pasta dish so I went to allrecipes.com and went on the hunt. I came across a recipe for Cajun Chicken Pasta and the reviews people were leaving were really good. I saw restaurant quality menu several times. I had all the ingredients and it sounded like it would be a quick toss together for me so I got on the ball and started cooking!
I did make a few adjustments of my own to match what I had for ingredients. I tend to use fresh herbs when I have them and since my son and DIL had given me some pots of fresh herbs (one being basil) I substituted some fresh basil leaves chopped instead of the dried. While the recipe calls for heavy cream, which I know would make this even better, I don’t keep it on hand because I don’t need the calories involved 🙂 Here is how I made the meal!
