For dinner we’re having spaghetti but making it a Cajun baked chicken spaghetti!
A go-to meal I think we’ll all agree has stood the test of time is spaghetti! It’s quick, it’s easy, and can feed a large family with left-overs to spare. With gas being at an all time high and everyone watching their wallets a little more closely, I’ve been focusing on whipping up low-cost meals with ingredients I have on hand. Spaghetti is a meal the entire family can enjoy. To change things up a bit, I like to use chicken in place of ground beef for a cheesy and delicious baked chicken spaghetti! You all know I like a little heat so I always use Tony Chachere’s Original Cajun Seasoning for my spin on a classic family fav with a spicy, Cajun flair!
