    I love the flavors of this dish, but I used to much cream and that overpowered the dish. Will make again though

    It turned out amazing! I didn’t use as much cayenne as suggested and it still came out great!

    AMAZING!! I love pasta (so I’m a little biased) but I love the flavor I added some spinach and didn’t make the shrimp (kind of tired of shrimp). But I loved the flavor now I wish I made the shrimp lol

    I doubled the seasonings, switched to Rotini, and added mussels. I also added cajun seasoning for extra spice. I did not add any bell pepper. Best pasta I've ever had!

    ‘This meal is delicious. It was simple to make, I did substitute the chicken stock for chicken broth since I didn’t have stock but I can’t tell the difference. Reminds me of New Orleans. Thanks for the recipe!

    A used a store-bought Cajun seasoning and it turned out with bit more spice than I was prepared for but it was still a good recipe. I'll make some tweaks but I will be making it again.

    Loved this. Absolutely will do it again, often. All I did differently was I used about half the amount of fettuccini noodles that the recipe called for Still had plenty in it. Nice and meaty, super flavor.
