Cajun Chicken Pasta

Last night we had our first pasta dish since our 10 Day Cleanse ended. We had this chicken pasta on our menu plan for about 2 months and I just kept moving it to the next week. Well, I am glad that we finally made it. It ended up being really tasty and super easy.  I was too lazy to take a photo last night, so this photo of my lunch leftovers will have to do.
