Ingredients:
  • 1â�„2 lb. penne pasta
  • 1 tablespoon & 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1â�„4 cup butter
  • 2 red bell peppers, sliced
  • 2 green bell peppers, sliced
  • 8 portobello mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 cups heavy cream

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes or until al dente then drain pasta. Place the chicken and the cajun seasoning in a plastic bag and shake to coat.
