  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. While the pasta water is boiling, in a large skillet over medium heat, briefly saute garlic in oil. Stir in tomatoes and their juice and sprinkle with salt. When tomatoes are bubbly, mash slightly with a fork. Stir in parsley, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes more.
  3. Toss hot pasta with tomato sauce, Cajun seasoning, mozzarella and Parmesan.

I did use several cloves of minced garlic instead of measuring out teaspoons. I also used a homemade Cajun seasoning blend and omitted the additional salt. Oh, man. This is to DIE FOR. My family...

I added some fresh basil to this recipe, along with chicken and shrimp, and it was quite good. I think more tomatoes than recommended would be better next time.

This is a very easy to make recipe that is great when you are short on time. The cajun spice mix you use is everything to the recipe, so choose wisely.

I had to restrain myself from eating too much of this tonight. Yeah, it was that good. I sauteed some sweet mini peppers before adding the garlic and tomatoes just for a little more interest an...

Mmm this is amazing! I one-and-a-halfed this (not quite doubled it if that makes any sense), so I chopped 3 tomatoes to go along with one 28oz can of diced tomatoes. I added more minced garlic...
