This is an amazing dish. If you are looking for something different to do with chicken this is it. My son loved it! If you don't like a lot of "heat" I suggest you leave out the red pepper flakes or only use 1/4 tsp. I only made half of this recipe as there is only 2 of us eating and with 1/2 tsp we had the heat. We like heat so that did not bother us. I used Barilla Marinara for the sauce. We will make this again. You want to serve with a slice of bread for the "heat". My kitchen smelled wonderful while cooking. I did this meal in my wok that goes on top my stove. I did use olive oil for browning the chicken. Also it says just heat through after adding sauce I actually let it cook for about 15 min or so. I wanted all my flavors to meld. LEFTOVER IDEA.. MMMMM... I am thinking taking the sauce mixture with chicken and putting on sub bun with moz or bleu cheese and under broiler.. wow.. or in a tortilla for a wrap.. Read More

I'm sure this pasta gets it's name from the red gold and green peppers but rastas do not eat chicken. Read More

Magnificent! I had one jar of Ragu Garden combination sauce only. So I substituted with one 15oz. can Diced stewed tomatoes.Blended both well in a large bowl. No other changes.The stewed tomatoes I believe added body and texture.Not just a saucy look.My wife and kids loved it so much we took a picture of it.So much good flavor so little time to prepare.Thanks!

This was really good. I changed a few minor things (didn't use all the types of peppers and substituded julienned squash for the yellow bells) but it was amazing. I used homemade blackened mix that I got from a recipe on here as well. Read More

Great spin on pasta it was refreshing trying something different than just the usual pasta covered in sauce. I actually used rotini instead of penne pasta to give it that extra "rasta" look. I probably won't stop saying rasta pasta anytime soon either. Read More

This was wonderful! I actually followed the recipe to the letter. It was as good as anything I go to a restaraunt and pay quite a bit of money for. It was easy but it tasted like it cooked all day. I will make this again and again. Read More

This was absolutely delicious! I love spicy food and was sure to use extra spice to make it even hotter! Before adding the pasta sauce I tried a piece of chicken and if it wasn't for self control the pasta sauce would have never made it into the saucepan. I cut the chicken breast pieces into cubes rather than long strips and added more red pepper flakes but other than that followed the recipe. Highly highly recommended for all those spice lovers!

This dish was really good. My husband and I both really love spicy food and this was right up our alley. I used linguinie noodles instead of penne. I would recommend using two bottles of sauce if you use a thicker pasta. I used a vodka tomato sauce instead of a basic spaghetti. Next time I would only use 1 tablespoon of cajun seasoning because i thought using two made the chicken kind of salty.... Overall it was a really good recipe that you can tweak to your liking.

very good! I used shrimp instead of chicken because my husband is allergic to poultry (can you imagine not being able to cook with chicken or chicken broth!) and it turned out really yummy - thanks for the recipe! Read More
