Today is a special day. One of my favorite pastas, Cajun Chicken Pasta, is getting a makeover into a comforting, cozy, palate pleasing soup bursting with everything you love about the traditional pasta: Cajun spiced chicken, bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and peas… all swimming in more creamy, Cajun sauce!
Somehow in my mind, any food in a bowl – or any food I can slurp – magically feels more indulgent and comforting. Maybe its because I get to cradle the warm bowl in between my hands or maybe its because soups are “hot” and so I’m forced to savor every last drop…. and in the case of this Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta – that’s a very good thing.
I have always loved Cajun food. It tastes so vibrant with its cayenne pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano etc. In my original Cajun Chicken Pasta recipe, I used a lot of these spices. But then I was introduced to the new Swanson® Louisiana Cajun Flavor Infused Broth. It is already packed with the robust flavors of Cajun seasonings, green bell pepper, celery, onion and garlic, so it eliminates the need for a lot of extra spices. The first time I used this flavor infused broth, I was expecting the end soup to still need some spices, but it didn’t need a thing!
With the help of Swanson® Louisiana Cajun Flavor Infused Broth, this soup comes together in less than 30 minutes once you start cooking (this isn’t counting the time the chicken sits with the rub) and is full of accessible ingredients – you probably have most of them on hand.
To make this Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta Soup, first, melt butter and saute onions and mushrooms for a few minutes…
Add Swanson® Louisiana Cajun Flavor Infused Broth…
Add cooked mini bowtie pasta, cooked chicken, peas and tomatoes with green chilies and heat through…
Stir in Parmesan cheese, lime juice and fresh basil …
And easy, creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta Soup is served! Grab a bowl, its rich, cozy comforting indulging time!
