Angel hair pasta is tossed with chicken and roma tomatoes in this simple but flavorful dish. The spicy blackened meat seasoning combines well with the crumbled feta cheese. Easy, but great for a company dinner!

Hi, everyone! I'm so glad to see that people have enjoyed my recipe. I didn't even know it had been posted until I "googled" my name the other day (just curious, ya know?!?!) Anyway, having read through the reviews and suggestions, I would like to make a few clarifications to the recipe. I always use Paul Prudhomme's blackened redfish magic, and I realize now that I usually only use 1/2 to 2/3 box of angel hair pasta. Hope that helps, and thanks again for the good reviews. Enjoy! PS: I didn't know how to post notes to your own recipe, hence posting here in reviews. Thanks again, Molly

This was a wonderful dish! I highly recommend this pasta and it is in my regular rotation. I prepare it with the following changes: use a 15 oz. can of diced basil seasoned tomatoes (not drained) instead of the fresh tomatoes, use the entire package of basil feta cheese, stir approx. 5 oz. of shredded asiago cheese into the pasta prior to mixing with chicken. DO NOT CUT THE PASTA IN HALF as other reviewers have suggested. This spaghetti isn't super saucy and liquidy like many Americans expect and that could be why people suggested using less pasta. The asiago cheese adds texture and flavor to the pasta. If you use the amount of pasta called for, this meal will go a long way. Enjoy!

Killer! I made it without the chicken and it was incredibly good. Will definitely make again and again. As a side note, this dish is extremely spicy with the 2 tablespoons of cajun seasoning - you may want to adjust if you don't like it too spicy.
