Cajun Cream Sauce:
2 T. butter
1/4 C. all-purpose flour
1/2 C. milk
3 C. heavy cream
6 T. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3 T. Cajun seasoning
For the pasta:
4 (6-oz.) boneless chicken breasts
2 T. Cajun seasoning
4 C. Cajun Cream Sauce
1 1/2 lbs. linguini, cooked
1 C. diced tomatoes
1/4 C. sliced green onions
1/2 C. shredded Parmesan cheese
8 pieces garlic toast

To prepare the sauce, melt butter over medium heat. Add all-purpose flour,
stirring until blended. Continue stirring for 3 minutes. Remove pan from the
heat. Add milk and cream and whisk until well-blended. Return pan to medium
heat. Heat mixture, stirring frequently until temperature reaches 200 F. The
mixture will just begin to bubble up the sides of the pot. When the mixture
reaches 200 F, remove from the heat and add the 6 tablespoons of Parmesan and 3
tablespoons of Cajun seasoning.

Sprinkle chicken breasts with the Cajun seasoning. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes, or
until an internal temperature of 165 F is reached.

Pour 4 cups of Cajun Cream Sauce into a large saute pan. Add linguini and toss
with tongs until pasta is evenly coated with the sauce. Cook over medium heat
for about 30 seconds.

Divide pasta among 4 large serving plates or bowls, mounding up pasta. Slice
cooked chicken on the bias into 1/4-inch strips and place on top of pasta.
Sprinkle tomatoes, green onions and Parmesan over each portion. Add garlic toast
and serve.
Yield: 4 servings.
