Red Lobster Cajun Chicken Pasta

Thank you Pat!! This was really good and I'm not a big pasta eater. Very easy. I did put 2 cups of cream in it because it dries up when it cools off. And I used spaghetti noodles since i didn't have any linguini. The cajun seasoning I found online. There were a lot of different ones and since I had all the ingredients for this one, I tried it. Was very good!!
