Cajun Chicken Pasta

Ever since we tried this recipe a few months ago, my husband keeps requesting it.  I think it's a new favorite of his, and mine too.  It is full of flavor, vegetables, and low on fat.  So, I think this is going to be a regular in our house from now on - because it is SO hard to find healthy recipes that actually taste good.  So, if you're like me and are constantly looking for delicious healthy choices, this is a great one to try.  Enjoy!
