Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta

This is another one of my rather naughty recipes… Yes you did read this right…it does contain cream… DOUBLE CREAM.

So yes it is a more synful recipe but I belive that you should have your syns (count them) and eat them… the cream makes this recipe taste everybit as yummy as a full fat version and allowed on slimming world.

However if you are far more angelic than me and dont mind sacrificing taste then swap it for quark or low fat cream or cream cheese from your HEX A!

This recipe was inspired by this one on Pioneer Womans cooking blog.

Serves 4 hungry people or 6 ladies at lunchtime!
