If ever a bowl of pasta has deserved to be called exquisite, it's this copycat Cheesecake Factory Louisiana Chicken pasta that includes a spicy Cajun cream sauce. TikTok chef Hajar Larbah (aka @moribyan) shared exactly how to make the cheesy dish at home in just over half an hour, and I'm already adding all of the ingredients to my shopping list.

The dish, which looks and sounds like a mouthful of deliciousness, calls for an array of spices — lemon pepper, Cajun seasoning, parsley, red chili flakes, etc. — and a ton of parmesan, which I'm definitely not complaining about. See the full spicy pasta recipe ahead to whip up a bowl for the whole family, and don't forget to sprinkle some basil on top at the end for the 'gram!
