  1. I made Cajun chicken pasta for a family of 5 . I doubled the recipe and added 2 tins of tomatoes, cooked leftover bacon and some sliced chorizo Everyone loved it . I had 3 portions for the freezer and some left over for 1 lunch the next day which my sons were fighting over.I will definitely make this again. Thank you.
