    Delicious!!! Will be making again doubled the cream to make it with more sauce and to cut the spice down.

    This one is a good one! It's very quick to make and super tasty. Definitely on my list to make on a regular basis just cut down on the spice or it won't be edible!

    Amazing! My best dish! Highly recommend! Tip: I get smoked jalapeño sausage! But I also like my dishes spicy.

    So tasty! It's become part of our go-to recipes. I use mini penne pasta, easier for my small sons (ages 2 and 4) to eat. Makes great leftovers also!

    This was such a tasty recipe! You can spice it up a little more with extra Cajun and still just as delicious!

    For the pasta I used three cheese and spinach tortellini. I wasn't able to find a 'cajun spice' in stores (though I found Creole spice), so I found one online to prepare, which just used cayenne instead of chili powder (duh)... The flavors all really worked together and the family enjoyed every bite.

    I didn't have smoked sausage so I used some regular sausage with a lot of smoked paprika. I had to improvise a bit with the cajun seasoning as it's not readily available here and something that I keep on hand. This recipe was delicious and super easy. I couldn't find the directions so I improvised by putting the cream with the cooked pasta and had cooked the rest in a pan, added frozen peas, and some water so it created a nice broth that I also mixed in with the pasta. It was very nice. My husband and son loved

    My husband and I love this recipe, my husband is a very picky eater and this recipe he eats everything. The first time I made it I put yellow tomatoes and peas, this time I just going to make it like it is and have long green beans on the side.

    Fast, easy, tasty....and so versatile. You can add anything to this dish to make it your own. My family loved it.

    I added a bag of frozen peas and a couple of handfuls of fresh spinach. My husband said it was the best "made at home white cream pasta" I had ever made! We will definitely have this pasta again!

    Cheap and easy to make! Plenty of leftovers which are perfect for a college student like myself. Thanks for sharing this!

    One of the best and easiest recipes for a quick dinner that tastes like you slaved over a hot stove for hours. I had to add a bit more cheese to thiçken though bringing the calorie count up. That is already too high. I won't be fixing often but definitely will fix again when I need comforting.
