Cajun is in fact a mixture of spices that comes from the area of ​​New Orleans and has mostly good things (paprika powder, onion and garlic, thyme and oregano, etc.) that can be purchased in the supermarket or spices stores - its slightly spicy, very tasty, and does wonders to chicken. Pasta with Cajun chicken is a wonderfully rich pasta dish with lots of spices and peppers - after you’ve made this dish, you’ll find yourself thinking how you’ve had anything else up until this day! For those who keep kosher: There is cream in this recipe - I made the recipe with substitutions (soy milk cream) and the result was excellent.
