Recipe: Cajun Chicken Pasta

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Pasta is the ultimate comfort food, but all the added carbs are not. Thanks to zucchini noodles, now you can have your pasta and enjoy it too! I replaced the pasta for zucchini pasta and used lots of sliced bell peppers to make this dish as healthy and light as possible.

The chicken is first tossed with lots of Cajun spices and pan seared until tender. The bell peppers and garlic are then added. At this point, feel free to make this pasta healthier by adding any of your favorite veggies. Broccoli, mushrooms, or sun dried tomatoes are all great add ins.
