We made this recipe and wow… It is one tasty pasta dish and super easy. Definitely worth a try ASAP!


  • 100g penne pasta
  • 2 skinless chicken breast fillets, sliced into thin strips
  • 2-3 tsp Shemin’s Cajun Spice Blend
  • 3 tbsp cooking oil, we used sunflower oil
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • 225ml double cream


  1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet.
  2. Mix Shemin’s Cajun Spice Blend with 1 tbsp cooking oil and 2 tbsp of the double cream. In a glass bowl, mix the chicken into the marinade and cover and leave in the fridge for half an hour, if possible.
  3. In a large pan, over a medium heat, saute the chicken mix in 2 tbps cooking oil until cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Then add the peppers and spring onions and cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Reduce the heat and stir in the cream.
  4. In a large bowl toss the pasta with the sauce. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan.

Tip – You can also make this recipe with salmon for a delicious alternative, and for a vegetarian version add in mushrooms and piccolo tomatoes instead of meat.
