You guys should know by now that I can make (and eat) spaghetti a million different ways. Hangover spaghetti, Haryali Spaghetti, Thai Curry Spaghetti and today Creamy Cajun Spaghetti!! I am so excited about this because it’s a recipe I swear by at home and have made many many times. It’s salty, creamy, spicy and I love the cajun and old bay seasoning in here ! I usually love to make this with peas but didn’t have any so I used tuscan kale because it pairs so well with robust and garlicky flavors and it can really hold up to a heavy dish! The kale still has bite and doesn’t wilt like spinach or other greens would normally do. If you make it, you gotta tag me on @thechutneylife so I can see your wonderful creations!
Make it Vegan:
If you want to make this recipe vegan, omit the butter cheese and heavy cream. Instead you can use coconut milk + nutritional yeast!
Make it Healthier:
- Replace the Spaghetti with whole wheat or brown rice spaghetti. You could also use zoodles instead!
- Reduce the amount of pasta by half and instead add in more veggies like peas, peppers, mushrooms, and more kale!
- If you want to cut the dairy, you can reduce it by half and make up for it by using vegetable broth instead!
