this is sooooo good. this is the kind of food i crave and what i usually order at restaurants. i did make a few changes that would work well for the calorie conscious...first of all i used about a T of the cajun seasoning that my boyfriend makes (i think it is emeril's recipe from food tv). i sauteed the chicken in pam, removed from the pan, sauteeed about 1/2 - 3/4 c of mushrooms, 2 T of finely chopped onion, and 1/2 T of chopped garlic in pam also. removed that. added about a tablespoon of butter to the pan and scraped up all the brown bits. added 1 T of flour and cooked a couple of minutes until thick. then i used a little more than a cup of fat free half and half. let it thicken, then i dumped everything back into the sauce, added one chopped roasted red pepper, and a deseeded and chopped tomato; i doubled all the seasonings. tossed this with pasta and it was spectacular. i know this isn't a particularly diet friendly recipe, even this way, but it sure beats the restaurants version of creamy pasta and i think it tastes even better. my boyfriend LOVED it and he hates cream sauces (he also has a huge aversion to low fat/fat free recipes, but he didn't know). This made about four servings. I think it would be wonderful in the summer w/ lots of fresh veggies. may add baby spinach next time or broccoli... thank you so much for this recipe!!!
