Cajun Chicken Pasta

Cajun Chicken Pasta
Note: Since this recipe is featured on the Food Network episode this morning, I’m bringing it to the front for easy reference. This really is one of my favorite recipes here on The Pioneer Woman Cooks, and I regularly hear from people who’ve made it with great success. Crowd-pleaser! This is an exceedingly yummy, decadent pasta dish with chicken, vegetables, and lots and lots of scrumptious carbs. It’s a cinch to throw together, and if you don’t have prepared Cajun spice in your cabinet, you can just throw a few spices together to make your own combination. Different Cajun spice mixtures use different combinations of ingredients, but if you stick to basics like cayenne pepper (important!) Just remember: part of the deliciousness of this pasta dish is the spicy kick. Here’s how you make it. Oh. Start by slicing the veggies: Lop the top and bottom off of the red pepper… Then slice the pepper down the middle. Rip out the innards… Then make slices—not too thick, not too thin. Be generous! Yum.

Hash Brown Wrapped Eggs It's been hard for me to switch gears from the whole "Stuffed" concept. It's too late to get this guy into the book, so here it is, Stuffed DVD special features!

Roast the potatoes until tender. Baked Lemon Pasta I love simple dishes like this. They remind me of my single vegetarian days in L.A. when I’d often come home from work and find a total of three grocery items in my kitchen. This is in contrast to the 9.446 grocery items in my kitchen now—everything from bacon grease to a freezer full of beef, but we won’t go there today.

Spinach Artichoke Dip Pasta Did I ever tell you guys about that (one) time my kids ate spinach? Like, they looked at the plate of food with the green stuff in it. They sniffed around the plate for an offensive smell. They tentatively raised a forkful of the green stuff to their whine-hole. They put the vegetable in their mouth and chewed. They swallowed. Make Your Own Ice Cream in Five Minutes Photo Credit: Sarah Fernandez I have such fond memories of making homemade ice cream in the summer when we were kids. We used to go pick fresh strawberries and blackberries and then come home and pull out the electric machine and load in the ingredients.

Spinach Artichoke Pasta I love spinach artichoke dip. I’ve loved it for over half my life. And I’ll love it till the day I croak or become allergic to artichokes. Whichever comes first. I posted my Spinach Artichoke Dip here over the (long, hot, thank goodness it’s over) summer, and it’s tremendously terrific. But a couple of weeks ago I decided to take a walk on the wild side and make a pasta version.

Spicy Pasta Salad with Smoked Gouda, Tomatoes, and Basil I found some smoked Gouda at my lovely little local grocery store yesterday, and I knew immediately what I was going to make. It’s a pasta salad based loosely on one I tried from Whole Foods a couple of weeks ago, one brought to the Lodge by recent guests. I can’t remember all the ingredients; I just remember that smoked Gouda played a role. I have tons of basil in my garden (which means I’m finally, at long last, happy) so I went a little crazy in that department. I whipped up this salad yesterday afternoon.
