Ingredients

  • 4

    ounces linquine pasta

  • 2

    boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, sliced into thin strips

  • 2

    teaspoons Cajun seasoning

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 1

    green bell pepper, chopped

  • 1/2

    red bell pepper, chopped

  • 4

    fresh mushrooms, sliced

  • 1

    green onion, minced

  • 1 1/2

    cups heavy cream

  • 1/4

    teaspoon dried basil

  • 1/4

    teaspoon lemon pepper

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/8

    teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/8

    teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2

    tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add linguini pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain. Meanwhile, place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl, and toss to coat. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute chicken in butter until no longer pink and juices run clear, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add green and red bell peppers, sliced mushrooms and green onions; cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat, and stir in heavy cream. Season the sauce with basil, lemon pepper, salt, garlic powder and ground black pepper, and heat through. In a large bowl, toss linguini with sauce. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
