    Turned out great! I added a lot of Cajun spice that I bought from Target. It was creamy with some heat. I didn’t have green onions so I added Parmesan cheese. If you have any leftovers the pasta will absorb the sauce, so you might have to add some water.

    Wow. Simple ingredients (I only had to get the tomatoes and cream cheese) one pot and filling. Everyone loved it.

    Yum! Changed it a little, used smoked chicken, fresh tomatoes, green capsicum as well. Served on couscous, not pasta, still very good.

    This came out so good! i made a couple modifications: I used a can of tomato sauce and half & half instead of fire roasted tomatos and cream cheese. I also doubled the cayenne because we love spicy. Awesome meal!

    Turned out great! Added mozzarella cheese and a little more Cajun seasoning.

    Kind of did my own spin and added chipotle seasoning, perfect amount of heat. I absolutely love it!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this. I doubled the recipe and also added two stalks diced celery, one diced green bell pepper, and sliced andouille sausage with the onions. i also added a jar of sun-dried tomatoes that i diced with the broth, tomatoes, and pasta. I also added parsley when i stirred in the cream cheese.

    It took longer for the noodles to become tender than the recipe stated, but I kind of expected that in a one pot dish. I added a bit of extra chicken broth so there would be more liquid for the noodles to simmer in, and added spinach right at the end for some veggie content. Flavours were delicious and it reheated well. Would make again!

    Turned out well. Had to adjust the recipe a bit. Added heavy cream to thicken it. But otherwise it was great!

    Love one potters. Decided while walking through Wegmans to make this tonight. Followed precisely as we do with all new recipes before we make our own changes. You can really taste the smokey flavor from the fire roasted tomatoes and smoked paprika. Creamy enough with the amount of cream cheese it calls for. Over all. It was a nice change and think we’ll be adding some heat next time, if we make this again. Onto the next one potter.

    Had to add more cream cheese than instructed in order to get a nice, thick sauce. Would definitely do again - very easy
