Ingredients

  1. 4 ounces linguine pasta

  2. 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, sliced into thin strips

  3. 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning

  4. 2 tablespoons butter

  5. 1 green bell pepper, chopped

  6. 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped

  7. 4 fresh mushrooms, sliced

  8. 1 green onion, minced

  9. 1 1/2 cups heavy cream

  10. 1/4 teaspoon dried basil

  11. 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper

  12. 1/4 teaspoon salt

  13. 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

  14. 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

  15. 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Direction

  1. 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.

  2. Meanwhile, place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl, and toss to coat.

  3. 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.

  4. In a large bowl, toss linguini with sauce. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
