Equipment

  • pasta pot
  • skillet

Ingredients

  • 1 box spaghetti I love Jovial gluten free cassava noodles. Use zucchini noodles for keto/ low carb
  • 1.5 cups frozen peas
  • 1 pound chicken breasts chopped into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 15 ounces fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup green onions chopped
  • 3/4 cup bone broth
  • 2 tbsp ghee or butter if you tolerate that

For the cashew "cheese" sauce:

  • 1 cup bone broth
  • 1.5 cups cashews
  • 1.5 tsp garlic powder
  • 1.5 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 lemons juiced

For the cajun seasoning:

  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  • Add all of the cashew cheese ingredients to a blender and blend on high speed for 4 minutes. Next, cook the pasta according to the instructions on the box. Then drain and set the cashew cheese and pasta aside.
  • Mix all of the spices together then add the chicken cubes in the seasoning. Add the ghee or butter to your skillet and turn the skillet on medium heat. Wait until the skillet is very hot and add the chicken in for 2 minutes on each side for a total of 4 minutes. The chicken does not need to be cooked all the way through at this point. Now add in the onions with the chicken and sautee for 2 more minutes.
  • Now add in the roasted tomatoes, peas, bone broth, and cashew cheese to the dish and allow to simmer. Now add in the pasta. Top off with green onions and optional red pepper flakes.
