Cajun Butter Pasta

3C5CF0AB-5BCC-47A7-BF6D-1F2DBC1EE981

A delicious Cajun Butter Pasta that is made with fettuccini, asparagus, garlic, parmesan cheese, white wine and cherry tomatoes tossed with just enough Cajun seasoned cream sauce. You can substitute chicken broth for the wine and any other vegetable for the asparagus if you want. Feel free to increase the Cajun seasoning if you like it spicy. This recipe is very versatile and very good!

This is another recipe from a cooking class that I attended. Sharing all these delicious recipes from the classes has been fun. I signed up for 5 classes that are 3 hours long each. I still have 2 remaining classes. We made 5 recipes in each of the first three classes. I will not be posting every recipe because if you follow me regularly you know I only post recipes that I think are amazing.

Ingredients – Although the recipe calls

for white wine, the chef only had access

to red wine so we used that. You can

substitute chicken broth for the wine too.

  1. NOLA Boy is definitely drooling over this one! I make variations of this all the time. So easy – and so satisfying. Can be made oriental-like so easily, too. Love to use bok choy!
