Vegetarian Louisiana Pasta

Recipe of the week ūüôā

I love recreating our favorite restaurant recipes at home. I made it first time for Thanksgiving dinner and we loved it!

This pasta is loved by both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike makes it so much better. Yesterday we went to Cheesecake Factory and ordered Louisiana Chicken Pasta. I was not in the mood to eat chicken, so I asked them to bring the chicken on the side!

This is the simplest pasta you will ever make yet so delicious and perfect if having guests over and just for special dinner for your loved ones!
