Cajun Creamy Chicken Pasta

I love having friends and family over, the more of them the better! And when I do host, this creamy cajun pasta is a crowd-pleaser. It doesn’t take too long to make and the ingredients are really easy to find. I like using the Classico Four Cheese Alfredo Sauce as a base, it’s easily found in more grocery stores. This is not sponsored, I just really like this sauce over a lot of other ones I have tried in the past.

For this recipe I used Penne pasta but feel free to use any pasta that your heart desires! My favorite is using fettuccine or Farfalle pasta.
