    Default Cajun Jambalaya Pasta???

    Cajun Jambalaya Pasta???

    As Seen on TV.

    The latest "new image" (beta test) Ruby Tuesday (chain) restaurant
    announces this as a menu item.

    "Cajun Jambalaya Pasta
    Shrimp, chicken, and andouille sausage sautéed with onions and peppers in
    a spicy Cajun cream sauce."

    No photo shown.

    If they use orzo in place of rice it *might* fly for a short while!

    But, cream sauce???

    Kaution: Kreatives in Kitchen

    Maybe OK for third-world appetites.

    well, there's no pasta in Jambalaya and there's no cream, so they are
    lying.

    That's not lying.

    They're just trying to re-invent themselves in the hopes of grasping what
    shrinking chain restaurant opportunity is left.

    Imho,

    I had something similar many years ago, but not at Ruby Tuesday. It
    wasn't a gloppy, Alfredo-type sauce. I found a similar recipe from Mr.
    B's restaurant in New Orleans in my Gulf Coast Cooking cookbook
    (Virginia Elverson, copyright 1991, Shearer Publishing), which indicates
    that Ruby Tuesday was very slow to the trend.

    Cindy,

    Is a cookbook at liberty to criticize restaurants?

    I've seen Ruby Tuesday go through a couple changes with my own eyes
    but... but... can they do that?

    Even if so, that's a well outdated claim.

    Sounds like a Cheesecake Factory recipe. There are no Cheesecake Factory
    restaurants in Louisiana.

    Actually, I have what purports to be a Cajun/Creole cookbook published some
    years ago that has a recipe for pasta jambalaya. No cream sauce, though.
    It's basically a standard Jambalaya recipe cooked without the rice and then
    mixed in with cooked linguine. I've made it and it's really quite tasty.

    There's no doubt that it's tasty. Most everybody likes the ingredients
    (guessing).

    The idea of pasta jambalaya came off as a rip-off of the classic... but,
    then again, there are probably 1,000,001 versions of it.

    What's next? LOL!

    I'd probably use something thicker, like fettuccini or tagliatelle.

    You apparently aren't acquainted with just how badly Ruby Tuesday sucks. If
    anybody is going to try to sell you some random crap they call Jambalaya
    made with pasta and cream sauce, it's them. But hey, at least you can be
    treated rudely while suffering through an awful meal.
