Menu Description: "Our most popular dish! Shrimp and Chicken Sauteed with Onions, Peppers and Tomatoes in a Very Spicy Cajun Sauce. All on top of Fresh Fettuccine."

The Cheesecake Factory's founder, David Overton, says it was his unfamiliarity with the restaurant business that contributed to the company's success. In an interview with Nation's Restaurant News David says, "We did not know anything about running restaurants. We just knew that people valued fresh foods. In some ways our naivete helped us because we didn't know what you are not supposed to do."

I think we all know it helps to serve good food and that's an area in which the Cheesecake Factory excels. The pastas and salads top the list of big sellers, but it's the Cajun Jambalaya Pasta that holds the pole position, according to the menu description of this dish. Jambalaya is a spicy Creole dish that usually combines a variety of ingredients including tomatoes, onions, peppers, and some type of meat with rice. Rather than the traditional rice, the Cheesecake Factory has designed its version to include two types of fettuccine—an attractive mix of standard white noodles and spinach-flavored noodles.

This recipe makes 2 huge portions, like those served in the restaurant. It's probably enough food for a family of four.

I'm a vegetarian so I had to follow the recipe with out tasting it throughout the process. My husband loves this dish. He's happy he has more for lunch or dinner tomorrow.

I followed this recipe exactly as written, with the exception of no shrimp (don't like it) and made steamed rice instead of pasta. The flavors were amazing, especially the next day. This is spot on and the closest thing I've ever had to Cheesecake Factory's Gumbo. I made this along with Alton Brown's "Sweet Corn Bread Pudding" and it was so good. My family couldn't get enough. One piece of advice, do NOT omit the white wine ... it made such a huge difference in flavor
