Cajun Chicken & Andoulille Alfredo Sauce Ovr Pasta

Diane Atherton


Without a doubt, Cajun at it's best!!

I'm not sure you could find better in a fine Restaurant. I would definitely consider this dish when entertaining.

Another inspired dish from Southern Living.

Hope you enjoy as much as I did!
