Instructions
  1. Cook pasta according to packaging.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 Tablespoon olive oil over medium-heat in a medium skillet. Add chicken, season with salt and pepper, and cook until no longer pink in the middle. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  3. Add remaining oil to pan and sauté onion and garlic until the onion becomes translucent, about 3 minutes. Add cajun seasoning and cook another minute. Ass tomato sauce and bring down the heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes until tomato sauce has thickened.
  4. Once the sauce has thickened add the heavy cream and Parmesan and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add the pasta and chicken and toss together, making sure the pasta and chicken are heated through. Serve with extra Parmesan cheese.
Recipe Notes

Torchietti is a fun swirly pasta. You can always use Rotini pasta in its place.

Add a little extra punch by adding in 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes.
