Remove from heat and set aside in a bowl. Add the rest of the butter to the skillet (don’t clean the skillet first) and throw in the bell pepper and onion.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a pot of boiling water according to package directions.

Add the Cajun seasoning, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to the skillet. Stir well and cook until the peppers and onions begin to soften.

Meanwhile, add the cornstarch and water to a small bowl and whisk to combine.

Once the peppers have softened, add the whipping cream to the skillet and mix well.
Photobucket
Simmer until the mixture starts to bubble.

Add the cornstarch mixture and cook for another 5 minutes. The sauce will really start to thicken.

    I made this tonight for my girlfriend. She loves the Louisiana Chicken pasta from Cheesecake Factory. It was a huge success – thanks so much for the recipe. Writing this now that she’s passed out on the couch after eating more than I’ve ever seen her eat. Now I have the next 4 hours to play video games in peace. Best $40 ever.
