Cajun Pasta

Pasta-what more can I say? Who doesn't love a big 'ol plate of pasta? My hubby loves anything spicy and loves his pasta sauce to have a little kick to it. I came across this recipe somewhere(i can't remember where) and knew my hubby would love it. It did not dissappoint. It was really yummy!! If you love a little kick in your food than give this a try and please don't judge it by the picture it is way yummier than it looks.

Cajun Pasta

2 T. olive oil
2 T. butter
1 large onion, yellow or red chopped
2 T. garlic, minced
1 large red, yellow, or orange bell peppers or 10 sweet mini ones, chopped
1 T. cajun seasoning
1-2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cups chicken broth
1(28 oz) can petite diced tomatoes, partially drained(just dump off a little of the liquid)
1 cup heavy cream(or half and half)

Heat the olive oil and butter in a pot over medium heat. Add the onion, peppers, and garlic and cook until veggies are tender. Add the seasonings, tomatoes, and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for at least 20 minutes. Add the cream and heat through. Serve over you choice of pasta with bread and salad!!! Yum!!!

Note:if you have picky eaters who don't like chunks in their sauce you can puree the sauce in a blender and then serve it over the pasta as well!!!
